Did you expect DKC to be a system seller on WiiU?

Or were you expecting a different game to be?

The Last of Us is the greatest game in the last decade. There is no argument.

It will not move more consoles than Kart or SSBU...

Will it move systems? Not many. I think the majority of the target audience for DKC: TF already have a Wii U. I would expect Smash Bros. to be the biggest mover this year, but I still think it is going to take more than one game to make a substantial impact (although Mario Kart will assist in that).

DKCTF is going to be the game that tips the scales for exactly 0 people. That isn't to say that if a bundle for it is released that it won't sell at all, but no one is going to buy the Wii U purely in anticipation of this game.

It'll move some, not as much as MK or Smash though.

Honestly if 2 Mario games didn't already move it, nothing will LOL.

Hmm interesting. Guess most video game characters can't say they outsell themselves. Then again, most video game characters aren't Mario.

No, he specifically said Mario Kart .

Mario Kart isn't a Mario game. It's a Mario KART game.
A game utilizing the same characters and similar settings as the Mario games, but are not part of any actual continuity (I suppose, if you could call what the Mario games have as "continuity").

It's like if you placed Marvel vs. Capcom into the Marvel comics timeline (as in Earth 626). It's an entirely different timeline altogether. The things that happen in MvC do not impact any Marvel comics, nor any Capcom games.

Mario Kart is as much a Mario game, as it is a Bowser, or Luigi game.

If Smash is a Mario game, then it's also a Pokemon, Star Fox, F-Zero, Metroid, and now a Punch Out!! game. Now people can stop whining about not getting a new F-Zero, because Smash is an F-Zero game.
