Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Mario Kart 8 sales prediction thread

    This is pretty simple, guys. Simply predict the amount of copies Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U is going to sell.

     I am pretty curious to see the predictions since MK8 is often considered to be the game that will save the Wii U, but there are some gamers who aren't so positive regarding this Mario Kart entry.  I am pretty positive regarding this game and I hope that it will move  Wii U consoles.

     We are going to put down predictions for three milestones. Keep  in mind that we have to wait for the game to launch in all  regions in order to make a solid opinion on  the sales of each milestone. The three milestones are: first week sales ( its sales in the first week), 2014 sales ( its sales at the end of 2014) and lifetime sales ( the sales it's going to have  in the end)

     I will make a table for each user that predicts  the sales for Mario Kart 8. I will try to update them daily.

     Here is a list of all the Mario Kart games and how much each one sold: http://www.vgchartz.com/gamedb/?name=mario+kart+

     These are my predictions:

     First week sales: 750k
     2014 sales: 3 million
     Lifetime sales: 10 million

     THE TABLE:

I think it will sell similar to the SNES/N64/GC versions so about 7-10m. Not sure about first week or year.

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

~10 million, the same as your prediction.

Had a bet with eFKac on whether or not Valve will be at Sony's E3: I lost.

Don't know about first week or year, but I expect around 7 million for lifetime sales.
