Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Why Mario Kart 8 didn't save the WiiU

Tagged games:

Is a limited time bundle.....seriously, I just went to 5 stores and called 5 others before I managed to find 1 (literally the last one in town)..... This bundle just released 3 weeks ago and it's already sold out? Nintendo is not keeping this as an ongoing bundle?
Bad move IMO.....this bundle could have saved the WiiU, but now people are forced to buy this....

I'm sorry, not everyone wants a 2D game like this, at least make a Wii Sports Club bundle.

Just because it is sold out doesn't mean it is limited, just means your local stores don't have them in stock and are probably gonna get some more soon

Plus you can always order online, I even checked, Gamestop doesn't have any in a store near me, but I found it at Best Buy and Walmart

The reason for limited stock would be atrocious Wii U sales in the past. Retailers don't have much faith in the console anymore, so they ordered stock in limited quantities.

Your opinion that the Wii U could have been saved is the reason why certain people keep piesacking Nintendo fans.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

well hopefully they will see the popularity of the bundle and release more, and retailers will do like wise with similar bundling

I am sure this bundle is going to be restocked just like the WWHD bundle.

Mk8 was never going to save the WiiU. A single game can't "save" a system. It can give it a bump in sales but that's about it.

I think MK8 will give people more of a reason to buy a wiiU this holiday rather than fully save it! The console is pretty much doomed but my god, it will go down with a bang! But we will see how much MK8 can sustain the wiiU sales (if at all)

It's not MK8 or the bundle stock that won't save the Wii U, It's the fact that the next First Party game releases in 2 months in Japan, and 3 months everwhere else.
