    Everyone knows that the Wii U hasnít been doing well when it comes to sales. And thatís largely due to a lack of high-profile games. But this trend might be changing now, as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate has hit the store shelves in Europe and North America.
    The first sales data from UK game retailers reveals that the Wii U sales have increased 125% since the release of Monster Hunter 3. Over the past weeks, UK retailers have been battling Nintendo and slashing Wii U prices left and right. Nintendo eventually met with the retailers and laid out their plans for the Wii U over the next months.
    And itís not just the UK where Wii U sales saw a significant increase. Nintendo France confirmed that Wii U sales have tripled since the release of Monster Hunter 3 in the country.
    Hopefully this is the start of the turnaround for Wii U sales. There are plenty of upcoming games that can easily cause a sales spike of the console. Games like Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101 are just around the corner.

    It's not, but considering how poorly it's sold so far it's hardly as impressive a leap as it could be.

    As others have pointed out; 125% of very little is still very little.

    Surely without some sort of indication of sales figures (which I guess needs to come from Ninty themselves) these percentages are meaningless? If it only sold 1000 units in the UK in February and then 2250 in March, that's a 125% increase, but still a dismal outlook.

    I know this may sound patronizing, so I'm sorry, but: don't do this to yourselves. This news should really only be a footnote. Whether the Wii U picks up in sales or not is a case to be made in long form over lots of data points 2 or 3 years from now. It could go Dreamcast. It could go DS. Anything is possible. But analyzing with the amount of information we have right now is fruitless.

    All due to HMV? That price drop will have got a few.
