Wacky mascot based karting games only has one king and we all know its Mario Kart.

Sure this game has potential to reach like 2 million lifetime sales...but thats nothing to be impressed about.


What? Since when is selling 2 million copies nothing to be impressed about?

Well Sony has been trying to get a Mario/Halo exclusive for some time. I doubt this one will do it, or in this case, have Mario Kart level sales. 

The quest continues. 



Ill assume youre talking 3D Mario, as you compared it with Halo. To counter this I throw a Gran Turismo in your direction .

Actually not really. I discovered that "time" is a factor in determining the true relevance of "flagships". It is something I like to call "generation sales". Basically how well a franchise sells over the course of the entire generation. 

Wii has Mario Galaxy 1, Mario Galaxy 2, New Super Mario Bros if I am not mistaken. Nevermind the spinoff sales like Mario Party or Mario Kart. Mario sold like what......40+ million dedicated Mario games this gen on Wii.

360 Halo sales (FPS ones) are comprised of Halo 3, Halo 3 ODST, and Halo Reach. Combined total of 26+ million Halo sales this gen. 

PS3 flagship GT5 only sold 7 million. If you'd like ill throw in the demo for another 4 million for a combined total of 11+ million. 

Being a one hit wonder just doesn't cut it nowadays. True flagships deserve multiple games per gen, and sell amazing each time. That is why in my opinion, Uncharted is the new flagship IP, since it now has higher "generation sales" then GT, which is a combined total of 13 million I believe.

I'll remember to bring up GT when you comment on Forza next time.

Meh its about even with GT in "generation sales". Its in my above post. Offcourse I dont expect people to catch on to it, its a radical idea but relevant nonetheless.

It's relevant to you because it helps your arguments. To everyone else: not at all. The "socially accepted" idea is that when comparing franchise sizes you compare the selling power of each game in the franchise, not total sales.

It will be interesting to see how it will play out, if the rumors are true of the ModNation devs taking the helm. I don't really see how much more they could improve on the ModNation formula (if it's the same dev).

I think it's a matter of style. 

I think mm should make it doesnt seem right to have anyone else do it

That's right. Before they also had Crash Bandicoot.

Right next in rank to Gran Turismo (barring GT3 14.8mil, on average ~10mils) is Uncharted (on average 5 mils), which is a largely below Halo levels (barring Halo 3's 11.46, on average 8 mils).

Then again, in the context of this discussion, Mario and Halo cannot be put together, since the thread is about Kart games, and we know Mario Kart now sells in the 20s of millions. So putting Mario and Halo together is a tad misleading.

At the moment, Nintendo's biggest franchise is not "Mario" (i.e. 3D mario, the equiv. of Halo in Sales' post), but rather...

 

For Wii: Positions 1 to 7 all above 20 million

---------------------------------------------------------------

Mario Kart

NSMB (aka 2D mario)

Wii Series (Wii Sports, Wii Play, Wii Fit, ...)

Huge dropoff from 20mil to 10mil as of position 8.


For DS: Positions 1 to 6, all above 15 million

---------------------------------------------------------------

NSMB

Nintendogs

Mario Kart

Brain Age

Pokemon

Huge dropoff from 15mil to 11mil on jump from position 6 to 8. I skipped 7 since it's another Pokemon, which is also in position 5.

 

Anything prior to Wii/DS above 15 Mil was one of:

Pokemon, Tetris, Duck Hunt (Bundled) or 2D Mario (SMW, SMB3). Super Mario 64 sold 11 point some million.

Oh please. The significance is there nonetheless, regardless if it helps my argument. Flagships are symbols of the console itself so they inherently need multiple games per gen. And they must be top rated in quality. Halo 3/Reach and Mario Galaxies got over 90 on metacritic where as GT5 is an 84, and took 5.5 years. That sir is no flagship. Uncharted is cause its quality is 90+ and it releases more frequently, keeping the fans happy and not waiting long.

Oh right, now you add metacritic to the mix too. Nice. You said Mario Kart was king but do you know what it gets on metacritic? Yep, sub 90 while LBP always gets 90+. Will be interesting
