They are still selling at a loss, so I am not sure how much more Nintendo can afford to drop the price when they are already losing money.
No, no they are not. Sony is, actually. Nintendo is making a profit despite the Wii U 'failing'. The Wii U hasn't failed at all, just wait SIX ****** YEARS and then see what happens.

WiiU needs either
- Price drop to 150$, in which case i would buy one for Zelda WW remake
- No price drop, but a proper real new, proven great Zelda, in which case i would instantly buy the system at its current price
I am never buying a Nintendo home console again just thinking that Zelda will be good, since i did not like either Zelda TP or Zelda SS much, Nintendo has lost that "blind buy" edge they had back in Zelda OOT, MM and WW days

I think it's a bit too pricey with their gimped network, underpowered console, and gimmicky gamepad. $250 seems about right. The gamepad seems like a cool idea, but there's little implementation of use for the thing and the battery life sucks. It adds too much expense to the system which could get along just fine with the pro controller or just a wiimote. I'm cool with playing nintendo games in HD, but it certainly only seems on par with the PS3 and 360 graphically and can't compare to either network.

No, not really. It just needs more games and better advertising. Bring out enough games and people will want one. Put a stop to the Wii-addon confusion and people will realize they want one. Anti-Nintendo fanboys will continue to deny themselves enjoyable experiences because they are scared of their childishness.
A price drop doesn't necessarily lead to more sales. People still won't buy one if there isn't games on it they want and/or if they think it's just something you use with your Wii.

@foxhound_fox: It's just a fantasy to say there is a quick fix to this. Nintendo have a very poor image among gamers.
Sony didn't need more games to outsell the wii u already after two months. They have a small library so far but people have faith in them. Gamers know what a wii u is. They simply don't want one. Because Nintendo has an image problem both with gamers and developers.
