Wii U sales jump to 875% on Amazon UK

Thought this was pretty interesting. Not only did Sony's and Nintendo's stock jump after the XboxOne conference(moreso Sony's, 1.93+ and .35+ respectively), but the Wii U saw saw a sales increase up to 875% On the Amazon UK website(though it probably helped that there was a temporary price cut)

Quote:
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.

Check out the massive leap here

Thanks timg57867 for the tip!

Not sure what the actual numbers are, but it's still pretty ridiculous

That's pretty incredible that such a subpar announcement would be affecting the competition in a positive way so quickly.

We're not even into the first year of the next-gen and things are already getting interesting.

Hmmm... in Zero's opinion, this is a sign of people seeing how complicated next-gen is going to be and how much garbage they're forcing gamers to do just to play games. The WiiU is quite possibly the last of the consoles where you simply put in a game and play it, online or offline, in peace. Admittedly, Zero is also very turned off by the Xbox One reveal and all the crap that came with it. There's still hope for the PS4, but Zero fears that some aspects of it may be similar to the Xbox One, and they just haven't made that public knowledge yet. Nonetheless, Zero can say that all this drama and changes to the industry and how we play games has made him appreciate his WiiU more over the past week. You can't put a price on simplicity and the fact that you're not being forced to do certain things (things which are a hassle for you, but make other people money, when it's something you've ALREADY paid for) in order to enjoy your hobby.

Seeing how their stock jumped after Microsoft's announcement, and considering the amount of backlash the One is getting, Sony would be stupid to follow Microsoft's lead. I mean, everyone right now is either jumping to two ships: the PS4 ship or the Wii U ship. Right now Nintendo has the biggest advantage over Sony due to the Wii U being the only next gen console available.
