da fuck is wrong with those guys...

"Let’s add a fresh coat of paint to the great Mario games on the portable systems and let console players enjoy them for the first time. The only option Nintendo has given us to pick up Super Mario Galaxy 2, an amazing game, is to track down a Wii and a used copy, and play in standard definition. [Update: As people have pointed out, backwards compatibility is also an option.] What a waste."

polygon is just a waste of internet... u can buy a new copy of the game today and play it on a wii u, no problem, and soon u can play it with the GC controller...


I guess they haven't heard of the Dolphin emulator on PC either lol.

Not clicking that link, that article seems like it's froma site that will give you spyware.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

So Polygon authored this article just to try do a run around and say they were actually right along even after their MK 8 sales prediction was proven wrong by reality.

Ok a little math for Polygon:

Mario Kart 8: 1.2 million units on a 1 system with 6.1 million users= about a 20 percent attach rate
Watch Dogs: 4 million units on 4 systems with 175.2 million users+ PC= a very low attach rate

Which is more impressive Polygon?

This is hardly the apology for that terrible article about MK8 being the worst selling in the franchise.

Shame on you, Polygon. Did no one teach you manners?

Why would they apoligize already, it could still become the worst selling in the franchise. Wii-U install base is very limited.

I think there is a real chance it will be the worst selling in the franchise on consoles atleast.(Double Dash is at 7m).

Because they've already been proven wrong on two parts, they said it wouldn't hit 1.9m until the end of March next year by the looks of it it'll cross into 2m by the end of next week or two and the logic they employed completely ignored the prospect of new consoles being sold due to the game. The U currently has a much higher attach rate then not only the previous Nintendo platforms but higher then most consoles released and the logic employ by Polygon would mean that the console would have to stop selling altogether for that to happen because if a game like NSMBU can reach over 4m on a 6m userbase then what of MK, by the end of 2015 MK8 may very well have passed DD even though they said worse selling in the series which by the looks of it isn't going to happen.

Don't worry, Polygon! People will forget about your MK8 debacle in a year or so!
