I don't think it will. The Wii is still "the Family console", it has it's own market. Playstation and Xbox reach out more to gamers than families.

The Wii still sold more than ps3 or 360. So saying the n64 was the last is wrong. Also, Atari had no iconic franchises. Sega only had Sonic. Nintendo has Several

Sega never went out of the video game business. they just went out of the console business there's no chance that Nintendo would go out of business but if they do well everybody knows that businesses die out but it probably won't be in the near future.

Nintendo is the only company that has money. The other two divisions (PlayStation and Xbox) don't have half of what Nintendo has in the bank. Nintendo has about $15 billion on the bank for themselves alone. That's enough to keep them around for 100 years without selling a single game. So no. Sega were going bankrupt and they still released the Dreamcast. To save themselves, they went 3rd party. Nintendo can have 10 failed consoles and still be around. As for 3DS, 40+ million have been sold worldwide. 5 million short of the DS at around the same time period. So it'll do 100+ million by the end of it's life cycle. Wii U has what PS4 and Xbox One don't have now. Games. And that's what matters. That's why people buy Nintendo consoles for. For their games that you can't get anywhere else. Wii U went from selling 30k units a week to 120k weekly after the bundles were released. So Nintendo will do alright with Wii U. They'll make it a success. Their IPs are bigger now than in the GC era.
