When the Wii U is in the state it is in. The 3DS is just finally fully recovering from a disasterous blanch, and the Wii went out with a whimper.
Does it make them feel better?
Everyone can talk about everything. Thats what freedom of speech is.
Besides, if you'd like a possible reason: Because nintendo actually does something to fix their situation and for example Sony cant do anything with the Vita. They are in a position where they cant fight a price war and that is a weak point.
Hopefully that is enough to end this ridiculous topic.
