Amazon UK: Wii U Sales Rank Jumps 875% Following Microsoft’s Xbox One Reveal ***Update***
The Xbox One’s 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 Microsoft’s 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 it’s good to see gamers are picking up a system that’s dedicated to gaming first, and multimedia second.
These numbers where based on when this article went up, not currently. Nobody is claiming the Wii U is selling more than everybody or anything like that. The point of the article is interest spiked after the Xbox One was revealed. And for the people who are saying it was because of the price drop and not the Xbox One reveal, that’s not necessarily the case. There have been multiple price drops in the UK and sales never spiked on Amazon like this. So it can’t be just because of the price drop. If anything, it’s a nice combination of both.
