GAME: UK Pre-Orders Are "Exceeding Expectations"

Nintendolife writes: "With Wii U's arrival just two months away, or slightly less if you're fortunate enough to be in North America, there's plenty of focus on whether the system is going to sell well and generate buzz at launch. There's little doubt that Nintendo's succeeded in North America with most retailers, notably GameStop, closing Wii U pre-orders in the U.S."

"That said, we were curious to know whether similar positive results are happening elsewhere."

Is that not a good thing and expected of any new console

Carl_Shocker2062d ago

I know's a new console, the "next gen", it's pretty much normal that it's got high pre orders because people know that when a new console comes out there will be places going out of what happened to the 360, PS3 and even the Wii.

They expected to sell 10 pieces people pre ordered 11.

LOL just kidding guys, don't hate me.

Anyone who preordered with Game needs a very swift painful kick in the bollocks. (Or vjay for the lady gamers out there :) )

They are charging more than everywhere else. The ZombiU pack is literally £20 more than the other retailers that are selling it.

Despite this sort of business strategy nearly killing them earlier this year, they still haven't learnt.

And what happened with all consoles before and will happened for the ones in the future.... :)

That's funny, I could have swore when I asked at gamestation about how well the vita was doing with preorders, they made out that it was going to fly off the shelves.. look how that turned out lol.

Then again, sadly looking at the sort of crowd that nintendo attract these days, I'd say it isn't surprising that game would be getting the bulk of preorders. Still calling bullshit though simply because it would be bad business to say it's doing badly.
