Mario Kart actually did better than I expected. I expected about half a million in the first week.

So how many Wii U's did it sell? must have been a lot.

187,000 last week and that was in 3 days of the game being released, not even a full week

It's Mario...The last Wii version sold about 33 million so it is no surprise it is selling like hot cakes. The Mario Kart 8 deluxe bundle is sold out everywhere in my area and even is sold out of it. And to think Nintendo games, especially Mario Kart, traditionally have long legs and will sell throughout the entire life cycle of a console, it is only the beginning, folks. Greatly deserved too!

I got the Limited Edition myself from my trip to NYC. That was a tough stay, but I stuck it out and got my blue shell trophy lol. I also got my Wii U the other day (decided not to go for the bundle and found a nice deal at Target). So far I've been loving it. So glad it's helping Wii U sales. :)

Mario Kart 8 outsells Infamous/Titanfall.

Nice. LoL.

I knew this would happen, i love all the platforms and have all 3, but its a shame a lot of retailers lost hope in Wii U, Mario Kart 8 will be the catalyst to a better future hopefully
