Mario Kart 8 is already $48 on Amazon. Should we worry?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Mario Kart 8 is already $48 on Amazon. Should we worry?

Usually a game only drops in price once it starts to sell poorly and this is especially rare for a Nintendo game.  Mario Kart 8 has been selling well, but who knows how much the sales have dropped after everyone who wanted it purchased it or purchased it and a Wii U.

Is Mario Kart 8 doomed? 

For those who want the game that don't have it yet, maybe you're interested in it at this price?  Although maybe you still want to wait.  Just remember you can get a free digital game as long as you register it before the end of this month(I think.)

no. its been on the top of the charts (top 6 or 7) since it released. its most likely already profitable and this is just to bring in more sales.

Alright, but it's Nintendo.  You never see this happen with first party Nintendo games.

Nintendo has always been about keeping their games full MSRP until the games discontinue unless they bomb.  This is very unexpected.  Nintendo is usually not wanting profitable, they usually want to squeeze as much as they can out of every game they make... so super profitable?



Its a sale....

I always find it hilarious when people cry "doom" over retailer sales xD

Ok, but no. Because, no. But, no. It's one retailer that actually doesn't have a contract with Nintendo and have fallen out thus the reason the Wii U is overpriced there. This game is a huge success and will continue to be for quite some time it seems. It is selling very well and has stayed in the top 5 on amazon.

Price match Walmart's promotion



I think you're looking too much into it. Especially since this sale isn't applied everywhere.



No. Games drop by $10-15 all the time. I got "The Last of Us" two weeks after it came out on sale for $45 and it didn't mean it was struggling.



Some places were selling the game for under $50 on launch day. Pre-doomed.
