So my DS hardware needs a new home after discovering a crack along one of the hinges. Should I go translucent blue, black, or clear?

It's no secret the Wii U is struggling financially, but Nintendo doesn't seem to mind. While Microsoft and Sony are enjoying over 10 and 20 million units shipped, the Wii U is just barely over 9 million despite having an extra year on the market. Poor sales have even led to major publishers like EA dropping Wii U support (their coming soon page doesn't even list the Wii U or even the 3DS even though Peter Moore claims Nintendo is a "great partner").

Scott Moffitt, the company's vice president of sales, explains why Nintendo isn't worried about a lack of support:

quote Financial Post
"Our job and our goal is through our first-party games, to build the installed base up so that it makes it easy for third-party publisher to bring their third-party content to our systems"
It makes sense, really. Nintendo never really has been big on making more money than the competition, but their games have spoken for themselves over the years. The Wii U was originally marketed to try and bring more core gamers back to Nintendo over Sony and Microsoft, but that hasn't quite panned out. Reviewers and gamers alike both seem to love Wii U games for the most part, so it's hard to say that the system is a failure. It may not be bringing home the bacon like the PS4, but the Wii U does have quality games that pretty much everyone can enjoy, and that's what really counts at the end of the day

Possibly looking to "smart devices" as a means to expand platforms Despite holding a "powerhouse" platform in the 3DS that continues to reach new milestones in the U.S. alone, Nintendo is still weighed down by a stagnant response to the Wii U.

RIFT logic: "Account wide" doesn't mean "account wide." Definitely Lorx's fault.
