I've seen this sentiment alot. And really all it does is paint a picture of Nintendo just being doomed to play third place for all eternity. Apparently there's no such thing as success with NX since "PS4 and X1 will be so far ahead". It's just a vicious cycle anyway you look at it.
But to answer your question: no probably not. But what I honestly want to see from NX is Nintendo trying to establish themselves more as a competitor in the console race and to plant a solid foundation going forward. And really all we can ask for is this and that they are able to make profit off of the thing.
