    Wii U sales jump 875% After Xbox unveil

    Amazon UK: Wii U Sales Rank Jumps 875% Following Microsoft’s Xbox One Reveal | PLAYERESSENCE

    The Xbox Oneís disappointing reveal has shot up sales of the Wii U on Amazon.com. The system was at #390 before the conference, but now has shot up to #40 due to Microsoftís glorified TV box.

    This momentum should carry Nintendo right into the summer as they have big plans for the Wii U at E3 and this fall. The console race has just begun but itís good to see gamers are picking up a system thatís dedicated to gaming first, and multimedia second.

    That's rather sad and pathetic. Can't believe Microsoft's console has failed this hard.

    Especially seeing the WII has been out selling the WII U almost every week the past few months. If it continues at that percentage then there will be about 300,000 est. WII Us sold this time next month.

    So that makes 8.75 people who have bought it since the Xbox reveal. Was the 9th guy an amputee?

    By the way, your inability to interpret statistical information is astounding. That article simply says the ranking on Amazon UK has increased 875%. Not only that, but it currently says 386% not 875%, simply meaning it's up to 50 from 243. There's nothing to indicate sales have increased 875%

    Let's put it in perspective - if you only sold 1 last week and 3 this week...well fuck me! Sales have increased 300%!!!! Low volume will do that to ya

    To put it further in perspective, Just Dance 4 on Wii is outselling the Wii U. It's ranked at 30.
    The Last of Us pre-orders comes in at #4 and Kingdom Hearts 1.5 at #3.

    Nothing and I mean NOTHING to see here. Learn to read.

    I am glad you are here, this is what I was thinking but would have never been able to put it across properly lol . The Wii U will be back in last place after E3, I hope they make enough cash to survive in the next month . Xbox one reveal sucked the console might not be up to much, but it is not fair to even suggest its as crap as the Wii U

    I wouldn't say that is because of the reveal. If anything it's because Sniper elite V2 and resident evil: revelations came out this week.
    The timings are the same but i'm fairly sure 2 games sell a console better than a bad reveal of a different console

    I think gamers just realize how bad the Xbox One is since it is putting gaming mostly on the backburner. The Wii U and Ps4 (as of now) are staying with what made them great, and that is simply gaming.
