Wii U Watch Dogs has 21,808 pre-orders. That's better than I thought it would be. It'll probably make the chart by the time it releases. 44 pre-orders is nothing to brag about though. I hate being to optimistic but it may sell decently.

In theory pre-orders for Watch_dogs (Wii U) for last week raise 700% on amazon, so I don't know if 44 is the proper number for the chart: http://playeressence.com/watch-dogs-on-wii-u-vaults-703-on-amazon-due-to-cancellation-scare/
