Nintendo's Wii U woes (The 3:59, Ep. 15)

We talk about a report that the Japanese gaming company will stop making its flagging console, plus hit on "Batman v Superman" and on cartoons teaching computers what's funny.

Nintendo's Wii U is on the ropes and the company may be getting ready to give up on it.

A Japanese newspaper reported that Nintendo will stop making its troubled gaming console, perhaps to refocus on a mysterious new system dubbed NX to gain ground against Sony's PlayStation and Microsoft's Xbox. We discuss Nintendo's denial of the report and what may become of the long-time gaming company.

We also talk about The New Yorker's new crowdsourcing algorithms for its cartoon caption contest, which may one day teach computers what's funny, and also delve into the movie "Batman v Superman" while trying to avoid giving away any spoilers.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by CNET Executive Editor Roger Cheng and CNET Senior Writer Ben Fox Rubin.
