Is This The End For Nintendo?

The house that Mario built seems to be falling apart. Nintendo (NASDAQOTH: NTDOY  ) announced earlier this week that sales are going to come in horrendously lower than it ahd expected--instead of a $957.7 million operating profit, it will be hit with an operating loss of $335.2 million. In addition, sales of its Wii U remain low, and its handheld DS system is losing steam.

    ~3DS not DS

    ~ The 3DS sold better than it did last year, but did not meet their projections, so it isn't losing steam

    ~This article didn't have any news, it was one paragraph long and was inaccurate, just shows how desperate you are to bash Nintendo
