Considering that Nintendo's profits in the gaming industry obliterate MS and Sony, I think they might possibly know what they are doing by now.
In fact they know how to do things so well that Sony can't touch them in mobile, and Wii was the most sold console in the last generation. And I'm fairly certain they'll outsell XBone and PS4 this generation as well. Not saying that MS or Sony will go under any time soon, as they gain revenue from many other areas, but Nintendo knows their industry well and knows their fans.
Ninendo has been doing games since,oh... around 1889. That's going on 125 years. That's longer than Sony and Microsoft have been companies COMBINED let alone in the gaming industry (which we won't even start on). Nintendo is a juggernaut in gaming, and are basically untouchable. They know how to maximize profits and minimize losses. Their systems, as far as I know, have never yielded a negative return, while MS and Sony have both had red years with their consoles. Naturally they cannot compete with either MS or Sony in overall revenue, mainly because they are purely a game company and MS and Sony are both in many other industries, but considering that they have even a 1/10th of the overall profits focusing on one thing is darn impressive.
