Will Mario Kart 8 be the biggest sales news of the year?

Uhh what?



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Right now Watchdogs will be praised, I personally would prefer Mario Kart to get the limelight because right now Nintendo really needs it.

I think over time MK8 will demolish Watch Dogs but in terms of news, WD wins this time.

I think Mario Kart 8 sell 6,000,000 thi year... but 15,000,000 on the end of gen!

I think It'll sell more than 4 million this year, and sell somewhere between Super Circut and MKWii lifetime.

4.5 million in 2014, 7-9 million lifetime.

mistake,two days ,unless you  consider australia a big market:P

How would that effect my prediction?

lolwut? WD is. Or Destiny.


Watch Dogs sold more, but was talked about less. Everyone wanted to know what MK8 did for Wii U sales.

Yeah, WD would have been a complete disaster if it didn't sell as much as it did.

It's not even the biggest sales news of the week. Watch Dogs setting an Ubisoft record for a new IP is.

And both have a chance to lose to Destiny.


Destiny is going to be massive.  I'm sure of it.

The Japan sales thread blew up this week. Easily doubling or tripling last weeks.

Vgchartz weekly numbers exploded! More than usual.

Mario kart broke a million in sales and pushed the Wii U close to 200,000 units for the week.

It caused vgchart sales threads chaos and is bound to keep things interesting next week as well even with E3.

 

Can any sales news beat the greatness that was Wii U's first true sales explosion?


Watchdogs is already a bigger news story. Next up, Destiny.



Definitely great numbers but im sceptical..
I'm sure that Destiny will sell about the same numbers first week like watch dogs but 1,1 million in 3 days is impressive. (watch dogs had 3 more days to sell 0,7 million units more on its strongest platform..)

Unless some other title can boost a consoles sales WW by more than 440% in the span of one week, I think it'll stay the biggest sales news of the year.

The problem with percentages is that they aren't representative of actual increase.
