Bingo. The first console I bought this generation was the Wii. When I had friends over it was a lot of fun, but everyone else owned a 360. I ended up buying one myself just so I could play with them online, and my Wii stopped seeing use altogether for years until we got Netflix (now that's the only thing it's used for). The other problem Nintendo is going to have is getting back the market share that Microsoft and Sony already have. Are you going to buy Call of Duty 9 for the Wii U, the Xbox 720, or the PlayStation 4? More people will be playing on the Xbox/Playstation (based on this exact same logic...), why would you even consider it for the Wii U? I don't think Nintendo stands a chance at gaining the hardcore gamer back. Good luck to them anyway. I really hope they can prove me wrong.

You probably know far more about this than I do, but I suspect that gathering these documents, then running a website dedicated to releasing these documents isn't such an easy task. Of course, I'm probably wrong to think they have to deal with government harrassments and DoS attacks. The information is probably all given to them for free as well.

How come financial advisors never seem to be as wealthy as they claim they'll make you?
