Wii U sales up 875% on Amazon UK after Xbox One announcement

Box designs for North American Wii U bundles

Microsoft finally revealed their next-gen console on Tuesday, which has been dubbed the Xbox One. Prior to the conference, the Wii U was ranked #390 in Amazon UK's video game department. However, after Microsoft's event, the console's sales rank on the online retailer's list jumped by an astounding 875%, rising to #40. That's quite an improvement.

  1. Holy CRAP. Why is that?? Were people waiting for the PS4 and Xbox announcements before deciding whether or not they wanted a Wii U?

    It would be interesting to learn why this happened. Don't get me wrong--it's fantastic. But I'm curious about the correlation.
