If the Wii U Fails, Is It Time for Massive Changes at Nintendo?

The following video is from Wednesday's installment of The Motley Fool's Weekly Tech Review, in which analysts Eric Bleeker and Jason Moser look at the biggest stories driving the tech sector this week.

This week, an analyst from Jefferies initiated coverage on Nintendo at "buy." The analyst's buy thesis, says Eric, is that the company is going to miss upcoming earnings so badly -- thanks in large part to lagging Wii U sales -- that the company will be forced to change its strategy. Wii U has struggled out the gate as developers haven't flocked to the system -- choosing to develop for Microsoft  and Sony's consoles first. 

The analyst reasons that once Nintendo changes strategy, it'll be able to succeed in other areas such as smartphones and tablets, as well as make better use of its intellectual property. Is this a crazy buy thesis? In the video, Eric and Jason examine Nintendo's prospects.

It's incredible to think just how much of our digital and technological lives are almost entirely shaped and molded by just a handful of companies.
