Looks Like next week it passes Watch Dogs on PS4. because it says 2.36 total after 10 weeks not 2.29. So we can't even trust what the BIG BOLD NUMBER is great.

Tak, when did they said it was sold? When it comes to this results, it always shipped, so it is shipped + digital, though either way, it seems to be quite undertracked here, unless Nintendo had like 300-350k units sitting on shelves, by the end of June.

thanx to MK8 (and possibly the E3 hype of the last month), the Wii U is able to give the Xone a good fight...

(if the Wii U can sustain the 2nd postion over time.., wonder if that will encourage Nintendo too make a "weak/kids" console again in the future, or if they've learn their lesson after the "close flop" and they'll make the next console as strong as the rivals??)

Yes, but Watch dogs for PS4 is an impulse buy. MK8 will sell over the length of this generation,Watch Dogs (irregardless of not good/bad a game it is) will not. Last time I checked, Mario Kart for wii was still in the top 100 sales on amazon.

Mk7 was on the 3ds, not the wii.
Message | Report
RaiZeNoblesse posted 12/06/2014, 12:13
MK7 sold less in it's first week, because the Wii Hardware was not much stronger than the NGC, so core gamers were not so hyped about it.. (core gamers are the ones, that buy games one day one resp. during the start phase of the first days/weeks..)

MK8 is on a clearly stronger hardware, which hyped some/more core gamers, therefore it sold more during it's start phase..

but the big sales (long legs) of MK7 were thanx to kids & casuals.., which the Wii U does not have as much yet (especially not as many casuals as the Wii) so it could very well not have the same legs as MK7 (but MKs often have good legs eitherway...)

just as possibly one of the best selling Wii U games, exepected/hoped for a overall bigger hit during it's start phase... , and MK8 could have been a bit "fresher/more intovativ",.. but they were proabably also time pressured

(but the E3 was imo a success for Nintendo, maybe the Wii U can still take off enough over time, so Nintendo wont lose too much or start to make profites if they keep bringing great games, and keep them "challenging" enough for core gamers.., not like the Yoshi Yarn and Toad Game are suggesting to be (easy/casual-ish...).. if they're only casual easy, it would be a pitty.. since during this gen the focus should be more on core gamers and not casuals, since casuals today play on tables/mobiles & Co.. and kids dont mind challenging games, look at the NES)

@tbone51 This is correct. Most of Nintendo's bigger franchises sell well for a very long time. Look at the global charts at the moment, where SM3DW, NSMBU, NSLU, Wii Party and Donkey Kong are all still charting despite having been out for anywhere from a few months to 1.5 years each. Hell, MarioKart Wii is still charting and that's been out for over six years.

@RaiZeNoblesse How is 1.12M first week bad AT ALL? If anything it is amazing, considering that it was only out the at the very end of the week. Really only thing holding it back was Watch Dogs, but then again they are for two very different markets. Plus, 3D world only did 200k first week and that was in the holiday season

Nintendo sales figures were as of Sunday June 1. These are as of May 31, except Japan is as of June 1. So there's almost a whole extra day in the Nintendo figures and I believe they included digital. This leads me to believe the 1.12m shown here might be slightly too high for the retail sales.

Bought this today, had a bit of a hard time finding it as a lot of places were sold out a few hours into launch day here in Australia. The last time I had that problem was with MarioKart Wii, funnily enough.

Anyway, that tells me it's probably having an excellent first week. One million in the first week looks very possible - that would only really be 1 in 6ish Wii U owners, which isn't that much.
