Guess it did "save" the Wii U

It's really impressive considering it's only in 1 console because watchdogs is in 5 at least.

What's your definition of "save" again?

This wretched world does not reward endeavor, it is the patron and his troupe who are receipt; maggots grown fat on endeavour's corpse.

did it?
Mario kart should have been a launching pad to a series of great exclusives games for the wii u coming up in quick succession, the next game coming up is hyrule warriors in september.

Looks like a fun game but not the game the wii u needs

The PS4 and (Possibly) Xbox One versions seem to be outselling MK8 so far though, if the UK sales are anything to go by. And there isn't that many more PS4's out there.

Not to mention how First Day is always the most important day, being the one where all the Pre-Orders get cashed in. Every day afterwards is significantly lower. Look at the 80% Drop in sales for MK8 in last weeks media creates (Along with some of my really bad maths skills that happen when you don't double check what you write).

So you're saying that Mario Kart 8 is the game the Wii U deserves, but not the one it needs right now?

Smash Bros will sell way more than Kart, this is great though.
