Comparing a single game to a console isn't exactly fair, Avalith.

Kidding aside, it would be interesting to know the breakdown of how many of those copies went with new hardware purchases, and how many were existing console owners. It will also be interesting to see the game's legs, considering how long lived the other Mario Karts have been. I can certainly see this game getting a big boost this holiday season as well.

I wish they would have made a 3DS version like Super Smash Bros. I still don't have Mario Kart 7 though, getting my 3ds 'late' (last year) means I have to be picky with the games I spend my money on 1,2 million sold in a single weekend is a great amount though. But hey, it's mario kart, how couldn't it have sold alot?

Considering the Wii U install base, that's pretty damn excellent. Well deserved as it is the best game that is currently out on the console.

With that said, I'm more interested in hardware numbers. I still doubt that it moved Wii U consoles by a tremendous amount.

Pikmin 3 is still better than Mario Kart 8

Impressive and well deserved, this game is incredible and I'm really happy it has done this well.

Goddamn. 1 million is wildly massive given the install base of like what, 9 million tops?

Dat Mariokart can move waves, and smash will move oceans. Not enough to save the WiiU but still, mighty impressive.

In the UK sales of the Wii U had jumped up 666% on the previous week, with around 80% of those new sales going to the Mario Kart 8 bundle.

Install base is around 5.5 mil. I think. Probably around 6 mil now.

Good news for Nintendo at least. Curious to see how the Wii U sales look after the games release especially with the bundle.

I always knew Nintendo was evil.

Now, I want to know how many people who bought the game got the deal from Club Nintendo. I'm very glad to hear the sales though, I've been checking Neoseeker daily for this news, and I got it Go Nintendo!

No, 9 million is to high.
Also how is Smash going to move Oceans when it's multiplatform and you're forgetting that MK Wii outsold Brawl...

Haha, it never fails. Every time there's a Nintendo article you come in and be negative.

This is good news, no need to damper on it for no reason.
