The Japanese company stated in 2012 that they would initially take a loss for a few months on Wii U sales, but as manufacturing efficiencies and lower component prices would close that gap in cost for Nintendo. But, the company still haven't turned a profit from Wii U sales, and it looks like it will only get worse as time goes on because Sony and Microsoft are both just a couple of months away from launching their next-gen consoles.
