It's a shame this is what it takes for Nintendo to get off their butts...

You people do know the only reason there's a Nintendo Direct today is because Nintendo saw the sales numbers for the Wii U for April and **** themselves, right?

While low sales are most likely the reason for an ND today, it's not the April numbers. Anyone with half a brain could use some damn logic to figure out that Wii U just wouldn't sell much, because there's no big games. With the biggest games in recent months being games for niche crowds, sales just couldn't be better than they are now.

Long story short, Nintendo most likely already expected low sales.

What are the sales figures for the past two months? And when is the ND?

What nonexistinghero said also makes sense. No need to call him a rat.

ND's seem to be monthly anyway one focussed on 3ds then the next on wiiu - last one was 3ds focussed and mentioned the update.

It's a shame that people like to attribute anything Nintendo does with negative energy.

Yeah, it's not like there's an ND almost every month or something.

Ever think it's because E3 is closing in and that this ND won't be anything too big?
