Super Circuit sold 5.47m in total. MK7 is currently at 9.55m and it took the game 40 weeks to get to 6m

MK8 is a bigger game than MK7 and will probably reach 5.5m in 20-30 weeks.

Just because Mario Kart 8 is more frontloaded than Mario Kart 7 doesn't mean it will be a bigger game. 



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

It's possible.

My opinion, for all it's worth, is that the game is just better and has more visibility than MK7 had, it's being more advertised and has a bigger online component.

I personally expect it to sell 150% of MK7 on the long run.

Every topic about Mario Kart, Max comes to tell us the same thing.


I wouldn't have to if people conceded the point that there are a good amount of people with too high of expectations. For instance, padlibs 20weeks it would need to average 220k a week... Or in other words not drop from second week at all

do you have the numbers for week 2?

Wouldn't be a problem if you did it in a mature manner.

Only one not being mature is you really by being oversensitive and "shooting the messenger" that ridiculous predictions are being pointed out.

someone needs a time out its there opinion freedom of speech
