It did 1.2 mil in the first week but what about the second and third? I think from that you can get a good idea of whether or not it has staying power.

>>248488007

Yes. It's the fastest selling Wii U title to date.

It's also the lowest selling Mario Kart game, because the Wii U is the lowest selling console with a Mario Kart game on it.

Interesting, because each individual Smash direct (jpn/west) has over 1m views online. Does this mean that most Wii U owners are watching on their consoles through the eShop and most of the people watching on their PC's are actually people who don't own a Wii U? Would love to get some eShop viewing figures from Nintendo.

>>248487659
a game like mario kart 8 week continue to sell at retail for 50 until the end of the wiiu life cycle, unlike yearly installments of games, that are only relevant that year. I worked in a game store, and people would come in and buy Mario Kart Wii everyday, even after the wiiu was out.
>>
>>248489349
Sony/MS didn't completely sever all ties with the gaming press in favor of Nintendo Directs. Even this E3 Nintendo kept to itself and did a rival 3-day long stream of its own content.

And you wonder why the media hate them? When there are no exclusive previews or reveals to gain click views? The gaming press cannot make any dosh from Nintendo anymore. Why go to polygon for Splatoon trailers when you can watch direct footage from Nintendo with the devs themselves?

Nintendoom (whilst true in a lot of ways) is the only way a journo can talk about Nintendo these days. Everything on the positive side has been cut out and is now delivered straight to the consumer by Nintendo themselves.

he has a point
I dont want to buy a console for just for one or two or even 5 or 6 games on it, even if those were games I really wanted and were looking forward to
I want to buy a console that has games I already know I want, plus a bunch of others I might also get, im not going to be playing those 5 games forever, i'd want quite a few other things to chose from
a large library is basically a consoles strongest potential asset, and it just isn't there for the WiiU yet. It also has shitty outdated tech and an asinine control scheme, which are the main reasons im probably not getting one.
to be fair, all this gen consoles have ITSFUCKINGNOTHING.jpg for a library right now

They were just doing statistics you know. No errors in their calculations. And they weren't wrong either.

I've come to the opinion that MK8 is the worst MK so far for 2 reasons.

>coins in item boxes

These are absolutely useless, in previous games if I was leading I could at least expect a banana or green shell in 1st place to defend myself with. Instead now you get coins most of the time that don't help you in the the race at all. Fucking useless.

>drafting

Just when I though the rubber banding AI couldn't get worse they can now rubber band behind me and then boost passed me with a draft.

This game is atrocious.

don't forget, on /v/ indie has the same meaning as on /co/. Capcom, Konami or EA are also indie, because you have to be nintendo, microsoft or sony to nor be indie. That's just as how stupid the local lingo is.

>>248490259
But it IS an indie game.
>>
>>248490119
That shit's been in other MK games, you know. Drafting's been a thing since DS, and the coin bullshit's been there from the SNES.

>>248490094
>It also has shitty outdated tech and an asinine control scheme

Just like every other console.

There's nothing wrong with the gamepad compared to other controllers. Especially if you're okay with the PS4's touchpad.

And the pro controller is better than all of them.
>>
>>248489883
Because you said games games games, half of the games showed are indie garbage.

The exclusives sony showed are; The Order 1886, Entwined, inFamous DLC, LBP 3, BloodBorne, Let It Die, ABZU, No Man Sky and Uncharted 4. So you got 6 games that are not indie that Sony showed. So many games!
>>
>>248490094
>asinine control scheme
Nigga the control layout is identical to any other 8th gen controller, there's just a touchscreen for added functionality in it. The only difference is you have your hands a little further apart, spacing for fingers/thumbs is exactly the same.

I could use the same argument for the DS4 and its touchpad.

Why do people think it'd be a smart idea for Nintendo to drop the console race and go third-party?

It'd be company suicide they did that.
>>
>>248490481
outdated tech, yeah, sure, but neither the bone nor the PS4 have that issue to such a degree. I dont have any issues with either of their controllers.

the wiiu gamepad is just a shitty idea, it's clunky and uncomfortable to hold, and the touchscreen is only useful if the entire game is based around using it, otherwise it breaks up the gameplay, and is just an overall pain in the ass, to stop playing and fuck around doing whatever with the touch screen.

Microsoft and Sony dont have those issues, and their hardware is better. PS4 is the only one im interested in buying.

Now what if the console throughout it's lifetime releases 5 to 6 games you want per year? Will you still justify not buying it because it doesn't has enough games you want? Are you really that dense that you need at least 50 games that appeal to you so you can buy a console?
>>
While that headline is click bait bullshit, it is true that mk8 is not gonna help nintendo as much as they would like to think it would.

The kind of people that would be so hyped for mk8 and the new smash games that they already bought a wiiu or are holding out for a wiiu just for these games are not your casual wii gamers that brought nintendo all those sales last gen.

Yes it sold over a million copies on its opening weekend, and now sales are tanking because everybody that wants it and is willing to pay for a wiiu has it already.
When sites bring up wiiu sales, there's a good reason they word it with shit like "sales are up by 666%!", its because normal weekly sales of the wiiu are almost comparable to the vita.
6.66* a really low number is still a really low number.

It's the fastest selling Mario Kart game yer, but it won't keep selling much for much longer because of a simple reason. There aren't that many WiiU's sold. Mario Kart Wii sold 30 million copies. That's 4 times as many WiiU's are sold.

It's quite a unfortunate fate for the game. It seems to be the best in the series but because of the console doing badly, it won't sell as well as it deserves. With Nintendo winning e3, I hope to see the WiiU picking up steam.

Currently searching for a summer job to get money for a WiiU but since I live in a shithole I doubt I will find one. ;_;

The gamepad feels just fine and it's used in a lot of great ways in a lot of games. Having inventory and maps use a different screen is useful and it means you can do 2 player local games without having to use splitscreen. It also makes 1 v 4 games viable, which Nintendoland actually does a really good job of showcasing

Seriously. 100% of the time, literally 100% of the god damn time, everyone who talked shit about it because of the way it looks, after trying it, actually LOVE the gamepad more than regular controllers.
It's comfy, fits in your hand nice, it's fairly light for what it is, controllers are responsive, good gyro sensing, touch screen is responsive.
I'm afraid I'm gonna have to call you a liar, a shill, a troll, and above all, a fanny bandit.

I have all three consoles because I have the means to do so and here's my take:

Ps4: great interface, flawless switching of apps, nice graphics, comfy controller, streaming is flawless, party chat is excellent.

Ps4 flaws: (from my experience) would never turn off it I selected off after pressing the ps button. It would always make a humming noise. I was playing ffxiv while in team chat with two others and it bricked. Won't turn on, it is kill.
Lost hope.

Xbox one: great interface, awesome speech recognition, nice graphics, built larger to stay cool in hotter environments, better launch titles, awesome party chat, kinect is awesome (if you aren't a tinfoil.) THE most superior controller, game clips within friends list. Skype.

Xbox flaws: frame rate drops occasionally.

Wii u: monster hunter was fun. Mk8 was just like 7 but gravity and nice colors. I want to sell it.

Ok and then there is the PC: great graphics, models, can use whatever team chat you want, gets the better game (if it's a great team who ports.) kb and m, freedom with mods, steam if that's your thing.

PC flaws: exclusives to each console.

To me, I think my favorite combo is the xboner and PC.

The N64 is actually quite ergonomic. You're not supposed to use all 3 handles at once, your left hand is meant to either hold the left handle for using the D-pad and L button, or the centre handle for the analogue stick and Z trigger in place of the L button. Your right hand is always on the right handle to use the face and R buttons.

Most retards just look at it and go BUT I DON'T HAVE THREE HANDS LEL without actually thinking about it. Shit was comfortable unless you were playing Mario Party in which case it was an instrument of pain, it's just a pity those analogue sticks died so easily.

>>248491302
Gaming Journalism would become extremely spiteful due to lesser funds.
Much more people fired, companies going out of business, and more independent reviewers rising up.
The mainistream ones will become more aggressive for clickbait, so since they can't shill for anyone anymore they're gonna rely on stimulating popular social agendas, basically, for gaming journalism to get their clicks they're gonna go SJW tumblr tard crowd.

Meanwhile, Sony, and MS are gonna get shat on because reviews will no longer be positive due to being paid, reviewers will have to review the game for what it is now, and most of the time it'll be shit.

This will anger fans, as the other biggest influencing factor in gaming journalism is the fans getting pissed off because their opinions are not agreed with.

Essentially they will still somewhat be biased, but more towards the mainstream popular opinion so that they don't piss off their demographic.

It would end Gaming Journalism, MS and Sony would crumble.
I don't say this with any bias, but it would literally be the best thing that would happen for Nintendo, because they stayed away from this shit and do not have to worry about the sudden change of events. It wouldn't affect them, they would just keep doing what they're doing while the industry tears itself apart.

I played WiiU for 5 minutes and the tablet thing is the shit. It is the most comfortable controller I have wrapped my big ass hands around. No cramping anywhere.

Also, WiiU sales are gonna explode this holiday. I bought into the whole "WIIU NO GAMES"' thing for a while and I just bought a WiiU after E3. I went to grab another game besides mk8 and realized that I wanted w101, pikmin, wind waker (never played gc version...), 3d world, and dong freeze. And I still want smash, splatoon, star fox. Probably more.

Case in point I thought WiiU had no games until I bought a fuckin WiiU and went to buy games and realized there's a shit ton of good games.

It's beyond Nintendo not paying gaming sites for marketing now though. Nintendo provided their audience with everything they wanted to see of the games this year. No need to go through the media or bring a group from a certain site back to a private room to play an exclusive demo that you could only see on a particular site.

With the reception of the Treehouse coverage, I think it worked too. People can call this place "Nintengaf" or whatever the fuck, but other communities seem to have really liked Nintendo's coverage this year as well. I think journalists are scared shitless of this, though.

Seriously, go look at any major gaming news site. If you went just off of that, you would think Nintendo barely showed up. I really hope Sony and MS copy the way Nintendo did their coverage a bit next year just to watch journos scramble.

>Fils-Aime also noted that 18 percent of Wii U owners purchased a copy of the game in its first weekend, but this number likely includes sales of the game from the bundle that was offered upon release. Still, the numbers are nothing to sneeze at, as the game topped 1 million on release weekend, making it the fastest-selling Wii U game to date.

Based Nintendo

Because it is within the interests of gaming media to sink a company that is not swayed by bribes, nor gives gifts to 'professional game jouranlists'

Nintendo gave pins to e3 press; Sony and Microsoft take those same faggots out to dinner and are given free swag/games. They know who butters their bread.

Wii U breaks even, and now they're selling even more? Well beyond Microsoft at this point, Sony is however at an advantage as it takes no loss this gen from a sold console, it makes pure profit, but jesus the rest of Sony is so awful it takes PS4's success and washes it down the toilet of tv & cell phone drain.

That's either idiots who think 4chan is a hive of scum and villainy, or /v/irgins reinforcing that image to keep the faggots out.

Mario 3D land if you can get it cheap. It's a competent portable version of Mario 3D world, without the overworld. Good for a quick play

Microsoft's got an uphill climb, and they may not be willing to do it now that Ballmer is gone. Xbone gonna get spun off within the year count on it.

Retard alert.

It had a much bigger drop off. Wii U owners are a lot more starved for content so they went out and bought it immediately, but there is not a big enough userbase to sustain the sales.

Was but it's sold at a profit by now.

I think Nintendo selling the Wii U at a loss in the first place was really bad idea.

They should only sell the Wii U at a loss if it can compteely beat what the competition's offers.

How good is a gateway anyway? Are there any real issues or is it the real successor to the R4/Acekard?
