Pre-orders for upcoming Nintendo Wii U games have risen 8.67% after Gamescom a couple of weeks ago, compared to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One game pre-orders that only rose 5.16% and 2.81%, respectively.




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.
