Ubisoft's E3 2014 lineup won't feature any Nintendo games, according to the publisher.
"We won't be showing off any Nintendo games at E3 this year," a Ubisoft representative said. Currently, the company is slated to show off Assassin's Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, and more announced and unannouced games at E3 2014.
Fixed the article title, too bad I can't change it for the source article. It is good to see they are selling more, but the headline makes it sound like they had sold 1,000,000 and now they've sold 4,000,000 or something. In reality, it is that they used to sell 100 a week and since Mario Kart came out they are selling 400 a week.
Well it's not like I don't have enough games to play as is. A price drop probably won't happen for a long time. I may end up buying at some point without a price drop but for now I am fine with all the systems and games I have.Fixed the article title, too bad I can't change it for the source article.

Oh well, bad news for @C Pav. If this game is pushing sales, there definitely isn't going to be a price drop anytime soon. Especially with a number of other popular series and new games coming that may drive sales even higher.
SourceBut in a survey published by IHS Technology and Gamer Network this week, consumers showed a 50% increase in "purchasing intent" for the Wii U, after a wonderful showing at the E3 games event in Los Angeles.
And then there's Mario Kart 8, easily a game of the year contender with half the year to go. It is a sublime and inventive addition to a much-loved series, combining all the traits we have come to expect from top line Nintendo-developed titles: accessibility, variety and depth.
The key thing is that there's not much coming from the other "next-gen" consoles to counter Mario Kart 8 this summer. There will be a few interesting digital-only releases, but the mainstream schedule is, as usual, a wasteland until September.
This gives Nintendo several weeks to really push the Wii U, centred on Mario Kart 8, but also reminding people about a back catalogue that, while hardly an embarrassment of riches, is certainly not an actual embarrassment. Super Mario 3D World, Wind Waker HD, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101 and Lego City Undercover are all there to be discovered.
Nintendo is even trying to improve the Wii U's online functionality. A new update allows players to finally transfer data and accounts from one machine to another, and to navigate more easily to the eShop digital store.
