    Mario Kart 8 Sells 1.2 Million Copies In Debut Weekend.

    The highly anticipated Wii U game, Mario Kart 8, has finally released (May 29th for Japan, May 30th for USA, and May 31st for UK) and in it's first three days it has sold a grand total of 1.2 Million says Nintendo. You can check all the info about it at the link below.

    I'd say things are beginning to look up for the Wii U which has been facing many struggles since it's launch in November of 2012.

    I forget the exact numbers, but based on my twitter feed yesterday, Polygon did an article before the game's launch estimating that the game would barely sell a million units through the life of the Wii U. Egg on their face, now.

    Last I read (which gave a "as of March" sales figure) it was 9 - 10 million.

    Then they should sell at least 50% of this in MK8 games

    Was it that many? I thought it was only around 5 million.

    EDIT: I found an article that said as of end of March (fiscal year), it was just over 6 million units.

    Edit: I must've either misread or been trolled, all the articles I'm finding now list the Wii U lifetime sales at 6.17 million.
