Why did Microsoft announce $399 before May was over? They seriously killed any sales they could of gotten last month.
Looking at past Wii U weekly averages, the only ones lower were May-August last year. Wii U's in for some super rough times over the Summer, I'd think. MK8 June "bump" may just make it "flat" with May, then.
I severely doubt PS4 is less than 200k with that information then. Unless XB1 is like literally 60k or something truly awful
You think many people were expecting a price drop to be announced a few days after the release of a new bundle?
I don't think so. I mean, I didn't see many people within the hardcore crowd (on places like here, GameFAQs, /v/, Reddit, etc.) saying this. And the MK8 bundle should be a decently large draw.
Really? I saw a TON of people on GAF alone saying that they were waiting until after E3 to pull the trigger. There are a ton of people who have bought refurbished console in the past week directly through Nintendo, and there is a huge 800+ post thread about people buying a Wii U in the past week. I bought one the Friday before E3, but I had been waiting weeks cause I was hoping for a price drop, but then I thought better of it.
