Nintendo Wii U Sales Make a Remarkably Sharp Spike After Xbox One Reveal

Nintendo Wii U Sales Make a Remarkably Sharp Spike After Xbox One Reveal

This week has not been kind to Microsoft and their Xbox One reveal.

The reveal event that took place last Tuesday was roundly met with Internet wide scorn for a number of reasons. The lack of actual games, Microsoft's still opaque used games policy, and an event that seemed to focus largely on television has seen many former Xbox devotees turn their gaze toward the horizon.

It looks like that far-off horizon might be one where the Nintendo Wii U makes a resurgence in the face of less than stellar consumer sales. Amazon UK is reporting a sales increase of over %386 for the Nintendo Wii U. The spike occurred directly after the days that followed Microsoft's big day. It's going to be a very interesing holiday season when the big three will all be in direct competition with one another. What are you thinking?
