I haven't owned a Nintendo console since the Wii and I haven't owned a Nintendo portable since the Gameboy Color. For my reason why? Steam. I still have an enormous backlog of PC games to play so I don't have the time for any of the major consoles. Nintendo games are great and well-designed, but are not enticing enough to get me to expend the time and to drop money for the console to play them. Nintendo's aversion to providing consumer friendly prices  after games have been out on the market for awhile is a big factor I'd say. I'm a "patient gamer" on PC by playing stuff a year or two old I can spend a tiny fraction of the original cost. But for Nintendo games being a "patient gamer" has no real reward.
