Nintendo's Wii problem

Nintendo is under pressure to consider ending production of video-game machines after reporting disappointing sales of its Wii U console.

The games maker is also forecasting a surprise loss, prompting its stock to drop 6.2pc.

The fall wiped about $1.2bn (€900m) in the company's market value.

Nintendo previously projected an operating loss for the year ending in March and cut its forecast for the Wii U's annual sales more than two-thirds.
