Source: IGNNintendo has slashed the number of Wii U and 3DS consoles it expects to sell by the end of the financial year, which has had a knock-on effect on its financial projections.
In an earnings release, president Satoru Iwata explained that the company now expects to sell 2.8 million Wii U consoles by the end of March, down from original estimates of 9 million, while 3DS projections have also been revised downwards from 18 million console sales to 13.5 million.
Nintendo did rather poorly on the last quarter and the prospect isn't looking too good right now. It wouldn't have matter if Microsoft did badly but I grew up with Nintendo. Even though I don't game on it anymore I don't want to see it go down. I hope Nintendo won't end up like Sega.
