The house that Mario built seems to be falling apart. Nintendo (OTC: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.

In this segment of the Motley Fool's consumer goods show, Consumer Countdown , CG analysts Michael Finarelli and Sean O'Reilly join host Mark Reeth to discuss the future of Nintendo and if its current weakness is a buying opportunity.
