Wii U hardware and software sales return to life

I've been really enjoying Lego City & MH3U the last week or so. They're both really great. I'm glad I took a risk on MH3U since I thought the demo was bad.

Good news, but its not an official price cut, so it will be interesting to see if the uplift continues after the price returns closer to normal. what it does prove is that a price cut and some games are badly needed!

Its an improvement. We'll eventually have more games for it. On a side note, no retailler was selling Lego City Undercover, I had to get mine of amazon.

CVG are so biased towards Nintendo. Always with the positive Nintendo stories. I find it sickening.

The story should be how badly Monster Hunter and Lego City Undercover actually sold.

CVG are complete and utter Nintendo fanboys, I wouldn't expect them to tell the truth on negative stories concerning Nintendo.

Only joking CVG! I'm a day late, but oh well.

If you write anything negative about the PS3 next week I promise I'll call you a bunch of Sega fanboys.
It's just a ride.

Can’t wait to get my teeth into MH once I’ve completed Lego City (Long way to go for the 100%). I haven’t laughed so much while playing a game in a long time.

I am hoping the quality of games continue just with a shorter gap in between.

They'd have had one more Premium sale if I could find a HMV with one in stock. :(
