    No, because they can't beat Ninty's IPs.
    Mario 3d world and Mario Kart 8 will have zero competition from ms or sony pretty much.
    And now skylanders bundles for 299?
    They will never bring over the shooter crowd, but I am glad I have one for wwhd and mk8 when it comes out.
    I don't think any hardcore gamer would be satisfied with just the wii u, but also I wouldn't be satisfied with just the ps4...
    I have been playing pikmin 3 this last week and have to say I am impressed. Ninty has quirky , perhaps kiddie type games like knack, but to me, they are also too damn fun to pass up.

    Wii U isn't going to be the success that the Wii was and likely won't dominate in sales like the Wii did, but Nintendo's strength is the Wii U is home to Mario, Zelda, the Wii franchise (sports, play, resort, fit), occasionally Pokemon and so on. People buy Nintendo's consoles for the first party games and unless Nintendo goes the way of Sega (unlikely), people are going to continue to buy Nintendo systems for those games. People that aren't interested in Nintendo's first party line-up will continue to stick with Sony and Microsoft and that consists of a big enough number to keep both in the video game business just as there are enough people that love first party Nintendo games to keep Nintendo in the video game business.

    The only demise that the XBOX One will cause is Microsoft's gaming division's.

    You gotta give your reasons why. You can't just make a statements like that with no good reasoning behind it otherwise it comes across as inflammatory (at least if this was a Nintendo forum). Anyway, what do you mean by demise? Because ALL of Nintendo's home consoles have made them profit. Out of the almost 30 years of console making, the only reported an annual loss for one of those years. There's nothing in their history that would suggest the demise of their home consoles is right around the corner. They would have to have Dreamcast level losses for 2 to 3 console cycles in a row to consider their demise imminent.

    Even the monster that was the PS2 couldn't do it. PS4? Don't make me laugh. (and I see a lot of promise in the PS4).

    Wii U will be fine. Nothing to worry about nothing at all.

    Nintendo will likely dominate this generation as well with the Wii U. The prime factor nowadays is price point, which Nintendos beating PS4 out on by $100. They are starting to get their game flow going with the holiday season, and the system will do great after that. I suspect the Playstation 4 and Xbone will have the exact same result the Wii U had, substantial preorder numbers and a decent launch, with a long drought for the following months.

    I've had the Wii U for about a year now and have been pretty unhappy with the game selection since its launch. As for its demise, even with the PS4/xbox I think it will hold its own. Its definitely cheaper and has some unique titles (MK8, Smash, Zelda) with a pretty strong following so I doubt it will be a complete bust.

    WiiU will be fine, but it will go back to n64 and GC number of sales.
