Slighty Mad Studios' racer, Project CARS, was the star of the Wii U pre-orders increase, with pre-orders increasing by a massive 42.53%. Rise of the Tomb Raider, the timed exclusive title on the Xbox One saw pre-orders pumped up by 30.25%. But with Wii U pre-orders rising 8.67%, the most interesting thing to take from this is that Nintendo didn't hold a press conference to talk about its games, but Microsoft and Sony did.
