If every Wii U sold with a game is profitable, how could they possible lose money on it?
Don't start a business.
lol ok, please explain. Or should I assume you aren't a business owner either?
I ask again. If every Wii U sold with a game is profitable, and every Nintendo-developed game is profitable, where is the money being lost? in Marketing?
While I don't agree with the OP and think it's too early to tell, there are other factors besides the number of units sold for a profit. The units that are not sold and are sitting on shelves or warehouses; the minimum number of units that they may be contractually obligated to manufacture that may not be sold as fast as previous consoles. Anything can factor into the company as a whole losing money on the Wii U regardless of each unit itself selling at a profit.
brought that up in my original post, said We can't know what happens to those units until the years pass, so it's impossible to say how they sold now.
