I have no idea how could that have happened, but maybe more people want a Wii U more then a PS4?

Eh I really don't see this as a big deal at all. It's no indication of what's to come.

PS4 stocks went down because investors didn't get a price for the PS4, or a release date.
Since the specs are insanely high (way more GB Ram than Wii U, etc.) the price will most likely be way higher than Wii U. Investors know how well Wii sold, so they transferred their money over to Nintendo. When a price is announced, expect it to increase more. Then when a release date comes, it will go down. This is just how such things work sadly.

If there was a completely logical reason for stock prices rising and falling we'd all be pretty rich by now, wouldn't we?

There is.

1) Sony stocks fell for two reasons - 1) Stock tends to rise in the lead up to a major product release as people expect stock to rise and so buy stock. If you look at Sony's stock it has indeed been on the rise. After the product announcement the opportunistic people sell those stock they bought a few months back for a quick profit. That drags the share price back down. 2) there is always, always uncertainty after a major product announcement. This almost always results in a drop in share price. Investors don't tend to like uncertainty.

2) Nintendo's stock rose because of the uncertainty over at Sony. I presume Microsoft's also crept up a little but gaming is relatively unimportant to Microsoft and so the impact of gaming announcements on its share value will be relatively muted.

If you have a understanding of share markets and the psychology behind economics, predicting the movements of the stock market in a segment you have deep knowledge of is relatively easy. The reason I am not obscenely wealthy is that it would be incredibly unethical of me to be investing in these companies
