    Thanks to M$ disater of a reveal, showing how they intend to just fuck over consumers..

    everyone now seemingly wants a Wii U

    have you seen the new sales data?

    - 875% rises
    - held the #390 position before the conference
    - has no risen to spot #40

    You replaced the 'S' with a dollar sign!!!!! HAHA! That's fucking amazing, it never occurred to me. Fuck M$! Fuck them all to a soggy death.

    That said.

    875% of the 3 Wii U consoles sold last week isn't that much. And isn't 40 on the (presumably) hardware chart an indication that it's sandwiched in between those replacement stylus things for a 3DS and a Hello Kitty themed XBOX Controller?

    As posted in the other thread... this is because it was on HotUKDeals due to a price drop.

    And the really great thing about the WiiU is it's fully backwards compatible! No need to worry about not being able to play current-gen titles on your WiiU, because current-gen is all it can play!

    See, there are silver linings everywhere today.

    The magic of percentages!

    When you can get to number one in the Wii U charts by selling less than 1000 units it's no longer a tragedy, it's an actual farce

    on a serious note though, why should they not benefit....

    Have you guys seen the MCV explanation on how used games will work with the New Xbox..

    Basically can only be sold to approved retailers, which then removes the DRM from your console...

    so basically NO private sales....Ebay et al

    so I think it is nice for Nintendo to at least get some sales

    On a serious note though, can we please lock the Nintendo fanboys in the Wii U thread?

    I don't want to have to read their nonsense elsewhere.

    Do the Nintendo Defence Force really think thousands of people have been on the fence about the WIi U, waiting to see the new Xbox before they make a decision on what console to go for?

    I imagine a small percentage have done that (despite the fact that we've seen so little in the way of the One's line-up, and know so little definitely about the used game fee thing), but I'd wager a far larger percentage are now more swayed towards the PS4.
