It has now been a little over 2 months since it has released and most of it has put wii u around 60k for the week. Is that what you were hoping for or you were expecting more?
Well, before people were saying (and some still are) that the Wii U is dead; MK8 has singlehandedly doubled weekly sales and has consistently put the Wii U above XBox One during the summer drought (if VGChartz is to be believed). I'd say it's done greater than any other game released for the current generation of systems. At the very least, it has significantly improved the sales of the Wii U :)

MK8 doubled the WiiU's baseline, so yes! MK8 is indeed doing its job!

Seems like that is not the case.
will be the best selling home console exclusive game of this gen on the worts selling console.
However, Wii U is still not selling well. Let's not sugarcoat this.

Gamechasers Ice bucket challenge!!
Come on PAT you are next!!
I still think MK8 will sell a million Wii Us, but now it's looking as though it'll take ~30 weeks to do so, instead of the 8 I was expecting.
So yes, Mario Kart 8 has done its job!
