Nintendo loses money on the Wii U, millions.
They were already hemorrhaging money at the end of the Wii's lifespan and now the Wii U is killing the company.
Nintendo is on pace to lose over 200 million dollars from the Wii U this year.
They can't cover productions costs, they can't cover advertising, they can't cover game development.
The software isn't anywhere to be found, Mario Kart tentatively in 2014, Smash Bros tentatively in 2014, Zelda in 2015.
No sports games, devs pulling away constantly.
What could Nintendo do at this point to turn the tide?
