They also mention the sales of the older MK titles in the article though and those are definitely shipped, I think they'd make a clearer differentiation if MK8 numbers were sold to customers, just a guess though. Whatever it is, the number is probably close anyway.


So lets say shipped+digital (i think so to though it can be the opposite), i say it did 1mil, about 200k+ on store shelves makes sense.... I think?

I haven't been really paying attention to stock at all, so no idea. I'd say the game sold through more than a million, maybe 1.1mil or something.



Let this fool be a lesson to all of you.

Luigi doesn't forgive. Luigi doesn't forget.





I believe it fully because of the amount of hype behind it and the extreme dry spell the WiiU had been seeing as of late. The bigger question is how much hardware did the title help push. Regardless, congrats Nintendo.

Impressive



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

So if this is shipped I'm going to guess around 1m for the first 4 days. Good numbers, Infamous took 9 days to sell 1m,


Infamous from PS4 took 9 days to sell 1m, Mario Kart 8 took only 72 hours for sell 1.2 m. :P




Polygon eating alot of crow now? ITS all over Neogaf, they supposedly did an article stating 1.26mil by Next year or something like that!

4 days and the numbers are shipped. Which is why I guessed 1m sell through.
