Will Nintendo get any attention this holiday season?

Nintendo is in trouble this holiday season. There. I said it. After all, someone had to, right?

With the gaming industry abuzz over the launch of not one, but two consoles in the course of a week, Nintendo has been trying to get at least some attention from the media. Like the person in the back row trying to be seen in a picture, there’s no getting out of the way of Sony's PS4 and Microsoft's Xbox One. And Nintendo doesn’t appear to have the firepower to change that.
