Nintendo is still selling each Wii U at a loss

    The difference being between Microsoft and Sony, and Nintendo is that both Microsoft and Sony have other businesses that can see them through losses for their respective systems for the short term. Nintendo, on the other hand, sole business model is video games. Them selling the Wii U at a loss will have a bigger impact on the company and I don't expect that they will continue in this regard.

    I would not like to see Nintendo go software only, but it is reasonable to expect that they will come out with something that is more powerful and flexible than what the Wii U is. I think those kidding themselves are Nintendo fans who think that Nintendo can do no wrong.

    I would like to see Nintendo go Software only! I would love to see Zelda on PS4 or Mario on PC!

    The only reason I get Nintendo hardware is usually for Zelda, If they went Software only and released it on all platforms well it's just saving me money! and them as they don't need to make any hardware and to top it all off the PS4/Xbox One/PC's all have much more power than any Nintendo consoles meaning they really could pushing the games to a whole new level and to makes matters even better, all platforms being x86, it would be easy(er) to develop for all 3 at the same time.

    But my dream of Zelda on PS4 probably will never happen :(
