Can Nintendo do anything wrong at the moment?

At a recent press conference Reggie Fils-Aime (COO of Nintendo America) had this to say

“Only twice has one company simultaneously had the No. 1 new hardware console, the No. 1 portable console, the No. 1-selling game and been the No. 1 overall software publisher,” he said in an interview here. “The first time was Nintendo in the ’80s. The second time is Nintendo now.”

Putting that into context do you remember the Gamecube from the last generation, the one that tanked so badly Nintendo where all but ignored this time around…

The turn around Nintendo has managed in this generation is miraculous.
