I feel this will put a lot of people considering a Wii U on the fence, waiting to see what the new PlayStation offers and if Nintendo really has a true next gen console in comparison.

I hope for the best for Wii U, but now is when it's sales slump and failure to penetrate the market is serious. The competition is coming

They're inviting investors and media to the event according to Pachter. It's likely to be the next console.

And Nintendo will be fine.

At worst, the Wii U ends up selling like the GC. I think the thing will sell around 40 million, but that's all moot. Nintendo will release another console in 5 years, they're crazy not to.

They'll weather the storm, and bring out games that no other console has. Because that's what it ultimately comes down to: Games.

We don't know the weight or velocity of the PS4 so it is impossible to know how it will impact the Wii U.

It's going to produce a lot of trolls on this board saying "Nintendo's gonna get smashed! They're gonna go bankrupt with the Pii U!"

Yep. They've not been good with their last couple of launches of new hardware. Hopefully they've learned from their mistakes.

Knowing how Sony likes to make gigantic bricks of their consoles, just dropping it an inch on the Wii U will put a sizeable dent in it.
But it ain't goin' down just yet. *target painted for grammar nazis*
