The Wii U’s sales seemed to have turned around quite a bit, as the system has seen a 75% sales spike since October. The Wii U and iPad are Twitter’s most discussed Christmas presents for kids.
The Xbox One and PS4 have limited stock, so this might result in increased Wii U sales according to the retailer. Based on their own Twitter analysis, Rakuten said the Wii U and iPad are “the most talked about presents for children this Christmas”.
“The marketplace’s social media analysis surprisingly showed that the brand new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles are trailing in second and third place respectively behind the Wii U and iPad.
This is despite the fact that both new consoles sold out on Rakuten’s Play.com during Black Friday, which have since been restocked. It appears that those on the hunt for the latest consoles are gamers rather than consumers buying for their loved ones.”
