  1. Good to see some good Wii U news and goes to show that people are still interested in Wii U, even more than ever from last year. So its not dead yet and these 3rd parties are making a HUGE mistake underestimating and excusing the platform from the start. Looking at the comparison of the 3rd party “support” on 3DS, it tells the real tale behind Wii U as well.

    But it doesn’t matter now. Nintendo will have to sale the Wii U out themselves always.

  2. interesting news, cause here in Germany WIIU wasn’t really mentioned in the gamescom-news, most publications only mentioned ps4 and partly xboxone. hmmmmmm

    1. Even without news about Nintendo at Gamescom they still got the most pre-orders…. I wonder why? I think it’s down to the fact Sony and Microsoft are yet again releasing the same generic shooters and adventure games.

  3. You need to get your numbers together before posting things like this. If Xbox pre orders used to be 1.000.000, and went up by 2.81 %, it would be 28100 increase. If Wii U pre orders used to be 100.000, and went up by 8.67 %, it would be 8670 increase. Point is % means absolutely nothing unless you mention it’s context.

    1. Get wt your saying. But their just going by the companies percentage and not a direct comparison in the amount of pre orders

  4. When you’re judging by percent, it doesn’t necessarily mean Wii U got more preorders than the other consoles, which already have a larger install base…
