Impressive, to say the least. My guess is that Knack is being undertracked in the rest of the world and Mario overtracked slightly (except Japan, from where we get figures).

Either way, Knack is breaking new ground for non-Mario platformers!

Yeah, I'm sure it's much more likely that Knack is undertracked and Mario overtracked on a massive scale worldwide, rather than Chart-Track overtracking Knack and undertracking Mario in Britain, and that both are vastly more likely than the game simply not selling as well in Britain specifically because retailers in Britain have divested in Wii U far more than in any other country.

It is...Knack is bundled with PS4's, which keep selling out in hours.



Again? All this shows is that the UK has no love for Nintendo, to such an extent that they are overlooking one of the best games so far this generation. Not sure how that's something to celebrate.

Great games should be bought and played regardless of which console they are on. When mediocre games start selling well then we actually need to worry. Thankfully Knack doesn't fall into that category.

Its sad and funny at the same time, UK gamers insolently hostile towards Nintendo.


One of the comments made me laugh,

"And yet it was still outsold by Knack. GG, Wii U owners..

Interesting.... I appear to have been downvoted by every person in Britain to buy a copy.."

Lmao. That's just too good.

I find it quite sad, one of the best (if not the best honestly) games to be released this year, outsold by a poor mediocre game, what fanatism & integrism leads you to... I see it as an "hommage" to stupidity & blind fanboyism.

Personal opinion aside, the explanation is quite simple, the only games I have to sell for PS4 @ the store I work are Killzone & Knack. If you want to buy a PS4 you either have to buy the Killzone bundle or Knack one, since Killzone is +18 rated, I see parents everyday buying the Knack pack because "there is nothing else".

I'm out of stock of Battlefield, COD, NBA, Assassins Creed, most of the time, we get very few units that sell out in a few hours, while having hundreds of Killzone & Knack game in the warehouse.

Meanwhile, I'm out of stock for SM3DW since 2 weeks...

It's easy to say the hotdog is the most popular dish @ a restaurant when the only thing on the menu is... the hotdog!

Again I think something is really wrong when mediocrity is celebrated over genius... the blinding road of fanatism & self deception is quite popular these days, it explains a lot of "weird" things happening on our tiny little planet!

May the light guide us in 2014!

Turkish, you say that as if it is good news.

It is. It means UK gamers are getting fed up with the same franchises and embracing new ones. It also means UK gamers don't listen to critics

Fed up of old franchises?  Is this a joke?

Do you want to look at that chart again?

Of the games available on the PS4, (you do know Mario isnt on PS4 right?) Knack is behind COD, BF4, FIFA, Killzone and AC.  Are they new?

Stop talking nonsense.

 

 

 

For fuck's sake. Yes, it was a joke. Lol

dont give up the day job... that you havent yet got.


There was absolutely no need for that. Just shows to me that you're arrogant and very immature.

I need to stop buying games...

I'm sure it's a huge concern considering 3D World is already over a million seller and Knack has sold what? 300,000 copies?

Fact 1: Not a single PS4 bundle is sold out on Amazon.com right now.

Fact 2: Knack is only in one of a set of bundles.

Fact 3: If Knack is selling well because it's bundled, then it outselling Mario 3D World is completely meaningless, anyway (so I'm not sure why you're asserting that part).

Fact 4: This doesn't even remotely support the assertion that 3D World is overtracked.

Fact 5: For Knack to be anywhere near 3D World in terms of numbers, it would have to be selling better than Killzone, and that's assuming some overtracking of 3D World.
