I don't see Nintendo dropping the Wii U anytime soon. There are lots of great games coming out that those of us who own a Wii U or for the people who will still be buying one.
There are too many "brand loyal" people on these forums who call themselves "hardcore" gamers. There's nothing "hardcore" about being a 1 system person. I see these people as nothing more than sheep of the great hype machines. I have all the system and a great computer than can out run any of the new systems. I love them all and they all offer great games. These so called "hardcore" gamers are missing out on a lot of great games.
Stop hating and start playing.
