Considering that WD is multiplatform, on platforms that have FAR, far higher instal bases than Wii U? And MK8 is only on Wii U, with a still relatively small install base? The answer is yes: MK8's numbers are, in point of fact, more impressive. There really isn't much of an argument to be had on that.
Isn't much argument? A lot of people expected Mario Kart 8 being one of a very few games only possible to help sale the Wii U. Its installed base didn't matter with that into account. Mario Kart is more popular than franchises like Metroid and Zelda and sold millions. How many millions or how popular was Watch Dogs with its history? Zero on both accounts.
Being impressed with Mario Kart 8 is saying they are impressed that one of Nintendo's most successful franchises of all time. How much sense does that make. A great game with a great history sold well. Its like underestimating the popularity of Nintendo's games.
So Wii Sports Club should sell 30 million units? Or 3D World close to 5 million? Or Tropical Freeze around 4 million? And I'm being nice, they're predecessors sold much more than that!
That's why I'm more impressed by Mario Kart 8. It has been proven time and time again that amazing games on th Wii U sell BAD! But MK proved us all wrong!
And don't tell me that you were expecting low sales from WatchDogs. Sure, not 4 million (those are CoD numbers, DAMN!), but it was going to sell incredibly well no matter what.
Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.
