GameStop: Wii U Software Pre-orders Double That of the Wii

by nintendoiso on November 15, 2012

GameStop has announced some positive signs for Nintendo’s upcoming console, the Wii U, which launches on November 18 in North America. The Wii U has a much stronger launch lineup than the Wii did when it launched.

The biggest launch title the Wii had was The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess which was also available on the GameCube. The Wii U has several third party launch titles which the Wii was lacking and it has Nintendo’s biggest game at launch, New Super Mario Bros. U.

Wii U software sales pre-orders are double what the Wii had at launch at GameStop. There are 1.2 million Wii U games pre-ordered and all 500,000 consoles the company will have at launch were already reserved in September.

At least at GameStop the Wii U will have a tie ratio of 2.4 games sold for every console sold at launch. This is double what the Wii had at its launch.
