Mario Kart 8 was the 2nd best selling game in the US for May

Not unexpected. May was a slow month, and Kart had legitimately good first day sales compared to other releases on the platform. It really came down to just Kart and Watch Dogs being the big titles that month.

I believe the PS4 Version of Watch Dogs alone outsold Mario Kart 8. Have no idea the figures for both games are.

That doesn't include Mario Karts that were bundled with Wii Us according to the link. I bet there were quite a few more sold.


Apparently it took up over half of the units sold, because the total was 1.2 million worldwide. It'll be interesting to see how it sold this month.

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

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


Smash won't even do half.

May's not what i'm curious about, as good as it was. It's June that i'm looking to. Bundle information should be calculated by then.

To be fair, the overall plot of the MGS series sounds like it was written by a 7 year old on amphetamines.-CrystalKing5426
