Forums - Sales Discussion - Mario Kart WII ships another 40k this past quarter

11 and a half years later and it's doing around 12k per month.... if you hold up a box of Mario Kart Wii to your ear you can hear the sound of the Sea... also the sound of tears from games which released over the last Decade that are being outsold by it still.

For those who seen this and thought "waggle casual game won't sell as well as the GC game" keep in mind that the majority of these games probably sold for around the €50 mark, that's 37million units @ 50 which means over the last decade Mario Kart has waggled just under $2b out of happy customers with its SD graphics and casual waggle fest controls. I'm sure Nintendo really hates that giant pile of cash because it wasn't hardcore cash.



Why not check me out on youtube and help me on the way to 2k subs over at www.youtube.com/stormcloudlive

Been selling like 40k every 6 months for a while now. Crazy how it's still selling.



     

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

That's amazing, me and my mom love this game.

My mom only play as Toad using the standard bike.



Crazy, but time is running out. I don't see any shipments past 2020.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 125 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 122 mil (was 100 then 130 million) Xbox One: 50 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

Is there a schedule you're looking at?

Any update for Mario Kart 8? Not Deluxe, the original that released on Wii 2, you know, Nintendo's iPad that you can't take out of the room because it has ass signal.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

It's stalled at 8.44 million. It shipped about 20k from October 2018 to March 2019, but it didn't ship enough for the total to change from April to September.

Considering Just Dance still makes strong numbers on the Wii even now, I'm not surprised. Still, what store still has Mario Kart Wii copies?

The Target near my house in country South Australia still had Mario Kart Wii and Brawl on the shelf right next to Switch games when I last visited home a few months ago (for $69.95 too).

As a fellow South Australian I can confirm this 😅
