Could this be the start of the turnaround for the Wii U? Could these bundled games be the key to turn this ship in the right direction? It sure seems to be!

The article is on the main page of Nintendolife.com and MyNintendo.com, great news indeed!

I always thought NSMBU was the better bundle choice for Wii U. Glad to hear about some Wii Us selling

There have been several different weeks of sales spikes in the past year that have turned out to be nothing, so no reason to think the tides have shifted now. It's going to take several months of consistent sales numbers before people can honestly say the Wii-U has turned things around, not one single sales boost over the course of a week or two.

Keep in mind that those on Amazon in the US are third party sellers not Amazon themselves, which means those sellers probably picked theirs up at Target or Gamestop or some other place so they were more then likely already counted once as a sale

It's good news to hear that consoles are at least getting off shelves. The Wii U couldn't even claim that last week. However, best not to get overexcited. We need to see news like this over an extended period of time before we can truly claim a turnaround. The biggest shopping season in the NA is about to begin and Japan is getting games they're actually interested in this month so it won't take long for us to see if there's a new pattern happening.

I'm glad the bundle is doing well. With New Super Mario bros U and New Super Luigi U on same Disk or Box, does anyone know if they're planning to release this version of the game in retail? Meaning the 2 of them for 60 us dollars or whatever your regional equivalent is. I almost wish I had waited for this bundle instead of the Wind Waker one since it was only digital version of the game.

Everyone gets a sales boost around Christmas time, but this is still good news.

You're right about Target, but I'm pretty darn sure GameStop exists in the UK.
