Is "875%" even a real percent.

I doubt this will carry "into the summer" as they claim. It's just a spike from people who were holding out for Xbox news.

microsoft is determined to kill the xbox it seems with all their stupid decisions. ps4 seems to take a couple pages from pc gaming while xbox takes cues from no one. xbox one will do well enough because many people want to keep playing with their friends online and they all probably have xboxes so they will get the xbox one for sure.

wii u just needs more games tbh even if xbox one was amazing (which it's far from atm) i wouldn't worry about wii u sales just yet.

Yes it is.
We all know most of the 360 sales are from the US and Europe so MS possibly losing some possible marketshare to Nintendo is a fairly big deal. Plus considering the sales slump the Wii U is in an almost 9x boost is great even if it is just Amazon.

...the hell? That's really all it takes for some people? I'm not judging, but I find this very... bizarre.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong is a hideously underrated game.

A lot of people were holding off on the Xbone announcement before deciding if they were getting a Wii U.

That's not a 875% jump in sales, that's an 875% jump in position. There's a big difference...
