Nintendo Co. sank to a worse-than-expected loss for the fiscal first quarter on lagging Wii U and 3DS video-game machine sales.Nintendo sold 510,000 of the machines for the April-June quarter, far better than 160,000 for the same period the previous year.But Wii U is not as popular as Nintendo had initially hoped for, and it has missed earlier sales targets. Nintendo stuck to its latest target of selling 3.6 million Wii U and 12 million 3DS machines for the fiscal year through March 2015 .Nintendo said it will start offering strong game software in the months ahead, such as "Super Smash Bros. for Wii U".
