I doubt it, Kart is what makes them their money and it's going to be 60 so it wouldn't fit in the bundle anyways.


You mean like Zombi U which was 60 and Nintendo Land which was 60, and Zelda which is 50

Kart bundle? Probably, although I doubt it would be limited, or anything special about it other than the game included.

Back then they were making a profit with that, now they are taking a loss and have to include a game with the base model. Do you really think they'll just include Kart with the base model? That would be giving away tens of millions of dollars, or exponentially more.

Why should I care how they sell the Wii U? I already own the thing!

They better release a MK8 and SSB bundle, those games move systems, and a bundle would do the business. I could see the WiiU hitting 20 million consoles sold by next Christmas if they do.


You do realize to hit 20 million sold Nintendo would have to sell over 1 million units a month from now (Sept) until December 2014? No way that happens unless Microsoft and Sony leave the business.

I'm sure there will be a bundle. just not in the way you think. It probably won't have anything special like the Zelda Gamepad. It will probably be like Wii U + game + maybe a steering wheel.


Kinda like this, but no steering wheel. The Gamepad is pretty large. Anyhow, Mario Kart is their biggest upcoming system seller. I don't think they're going to do an LE of it.

It's possible if the Wii U picks up enough steam (though not very likely). The Xbox One most certainly isn't going to steal any sales. The huge price difference means they're 2 completely different audiences. If the Wii U ends up with 7-8 million total sales by 2014, they'd need to sell 5-6 million until September 2014. The rest could be sold during those holiday months. They would have to do a strategic price drop around September next year too though.

I'd say roughly 15 million by the end of 2014 is pretty realistic.
