A few weeks ago it was revealed that Nintendo would start a promotion in collaboration with Best Buy to help players interested in the new Wii U games to be able to play them even if they weren’t attending E3. These events have been very popular, but it seems like Microsoft is playing foul and trying to poach people interested in the Wii U.
Multiple reports have come in of Microsoft employees hanging around the Wii U kiosks at select Best Buy’s, talking to those who are waiting in line about pre-ordering an Xbox One. It’s interesting to see Microsoft try to use guerrilla advertising to try and sway those who might be interested in their competitor’s consoles, when those consoles are capable of more things than the current Xbox One. Microsoft’s own advice to those who want to play an Xbox without an internet connection is to “buy a 360.”
