I assume that's shipped plus digital? Still great sales.

I picked up my copy friday from Gamestop. Clerk said they'd probably run out of stock by the end of the weekend. They were sold out of wii wheels. So I went to Best Buy, bought the last wii wheel available. And they told me they already sold out the game and the MK8 bundle.

That's just my experience, but I think we're looking a high sell-through.

Same experience here, difference being that German stock was in danger of running out before official launch XD

*Based on Nintendo’s internal sales figures.

**Mario Kart 8 launched on Thursday, 29th May in Japan and Friday, 30th May across Europe and The Americas.


So shipped?

Plus digital, most likely. Sold through should be close though.

I have to say that I underestimated the game, in my head I had a prediction of 700k-1100k, but was thinking closer to 700k. And now ioi is suggesting that the Wii U might have even outsold the PS4 for the week (but...well let's not talk about this sites' tracking accuracy), so I must openly admit that I underestimated MK8.



Holy shit! Those numbers are raaaaaping! And MK always had legs. It's probably going to be 3m by the end of June.

Not necessarily: Nintendo has a system that lets them track retail sales in more or less real time.

Been playing it all weekend and I've been having a blast. Well deserved. ^_^



Who actually bet against Mario Kart?



Whoops!



wow. This game is huge!



The real question is how many Wii U have been sold

Since Mario Kart 8 release.
