Wii U sales Skyrocket after Xbox One reveal

I'm starting to thin that Microsoft is a conspiracy. It was created by Sony and Nintendo to gain gamers trust and then shoot that trust down with an AR-2 to increase profits with other consoles/games. 

 

​It's a perfect plan.

But in all seriousness, I must say; that's quite funny. And at long last I have a valid argument against Wii U haters. xD

Do recall that sales do not necessarily equal quality; take the recent Call of Duty installments, for example. xD

I guess you do have a good point there. xD

The Xbox One is essentially a TV that requires a TV. I will get Wii U, PS4 and even a 360 long before I get the Xbox One.

I don't think the Xbox fail itself is the cause, though it no doubt contributed.

People were waiting to see what everyone was offering before buying, especially on the "I'm gonna buy two, but which two?" front. Now that everyone has their cards on the table, no need to wait anymore.

The PS4 and Xbox1 are very similarly specced, so why buy both? Especially since ports between them will be pretty damn easy and Xbox1 has showed that unless you're a huge sports fan that loves a side of dudebro games go PS4 for a power console.

Though I think Microsoft exacerbated it. People I think are realizing now that there won't be the huge gap that there was between the 6th and 7th generations in terms of graphical power. No one went for pure power. All three consoles are using low-power-consumption chips. And the Xbox1 has showed that it is not a game console, but a motion-and-voice activated Roku that can play dudebro games.

Also, everyone knows Nintendo is about to fire a software broadside that the other two systems won't be able to initially match (Remember, MS and Sony still will be hardware-focused at E3). Whether or not the games will move units remains to be seen, but I am more confident about Wii U's future now that all hands are known.

Or just get a PC and have both power and quality for a lower price.

Lower price? I recently got a laptop for $500 (I believe) and it lags on flash games.

 

I don't think I've ever owned a good computer that can actually play games well for a long period of time.

My computers always suck really bad and can't really play games well on them. Plus sometimes the games I buy for them don't work.

At least with a console I can almost be guarunteed that the games I buy for it will work on it.

Plus not all games are legally available for the PC. I say buy a PC and all the consoles so people can play pretty much any of the games.

Except Xbox One.

Because users just shouldn't stand for this.

Not surprised. But still glad people finally realize the Xbox 3 (Not calling it Xbox One cause its terrible) isn't a game console anymore.

 

Now it all rounds up to this

Prebuilt PCs are definitely not the way to go, and laptop gaming is not advisable IMO. Especially when building your own and upgrading down the line is easy, fun, and financially sound. :P

Nintendo's stock went up a little too, though not much. Then the Japanese market dropped and pulled them down with it (Unlike Sony, Nintendo has no stock in a US market).
