Ubisoft has sold a total of around 73 million games right?

The last Mario Kart console game alone sold around 30 million right?

Don't mix up initial hype for watchdogs with long legs.


That was just assassins creed

Ah my bad I misread. Still, 73mil is the highest selling franchise right? So One Mario Kart game (the last console one to be precise) sold close to half of the entire series of Ubisofts most successful franchise.

Sold..?..

or bundled/given away, casue my best buy has a wiiu kart bundle to this day.  


I do wonder about that at times.  After mario kart's release there was almost no way to buy a wii without a copy of the game, even today.  Not saying mario kart wouldn't have sold well, of course it would, I just wonder how much of an impact the bundling had and how many people just sort of wound up with the game because it was there, and the same with all games that come bundled.

Watch Dogs.

I don't know if Mk8 launch is worldwide but if not, only the ps4 version of watch dogs can outsell it. Forget the 5 or 6 platforms thing, doesn't matter.

yes, it will have a worldwide release in the same week. No, watch dogs on a single platform has no shot of outselling MK 8 first week, only the combination of several versions will cause that.

Yeah, then is likely MK8>Watch Dogs PS4, but seeing the preorder numbers here looks like is gonna be close. Japan should give Mk the victory.

japan will widen the difference but MK should win either way.

So Mario Kart 8 should be number two or one then that week?

All platforms combined WD will win by a mille. If we count only PS4 version I have my doubts, I do think it has a chance to outsell MK8 but let's say won't do it.

I just realized both come out about the same time. It was probably Nintendo who told them to move the Wii U date.....

 

I say Watch Dogs will dominate, plus its on more than one system. There has been a lot of marketing for it in America as well. More than MK8 even.

Yeah Nintendo probably told Ubisoft not to release a major 3rd party title on the WiiU when the system is in dire need of more games. Makes sense. 



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

1. Watchdogs (PS4) 1.5M
2. Watchdogs (XBO) 1M
3. Watchdogs (360) 750K
4. Watchdogs (PS3) 700K
5. Mario Kart 8 (WiiU) 500K

That's just my predictions.

You mean first week, right?
