Wii U Sales Jump in the UK and Japan

Games Radar: Retailers, publishers and Nintendo itself have all expressed disappointment over early Wii U hardware sales, but there’s finally some positive momentum as new software releases have boosted adoption of the platform holder's latest console in both the UK and Japan.

In the UK, Wii U sales jumped by almost 125 per cent during the week ended March 23, retail sources have told MCV. The success was attributed to the release of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, which is available as part of a new hardware bundle, and a major sale at HMV that saw the Wii U Premium model discounted by £140. (Nintendo, Wii U)

Monster hunter is a killer app for plenty

I suppose, I'm just a bit pissed that Nintendo have yet to give release dates to their upcoming games like Bayonetta 2 and Pikmin 3.

I mean c'mon, Pikmin 3 was supposed to be a Launch window title. It's April now.

people are probably finally realizing that it's a new console, and it hopefully will began to pick up in sales everywhere.

It's usually the same people who generally don't like the Wii U and their comments are often very formulaic.

Not to mention they're not exactly friendly a lot of the time.
