It's been outselling super mario 3d world for 2 weeks straight in the UK

Is this a sign of a future? will knack become the next mario?

Life time sales? No Mario will beat it.

I think Knack will beat DK Tropical Freeze.

..... well it might sell more than 3d world, which is a crime against gaming... and a sign of all those console casuals that drool over these devices with no games that they have to or just buy knack out of ignorance of its suckyness. but what can you do?

I honestly think nintendo should go handheld 1st party only, and 3rd party on other systems... I really do, they are letting their franchises down with their horrible hardware and marketing.

a real shame. I would buy Super Mario 3d World on my PC over any game on the other 2 craptastic consoles currently....

Is this really even a question...Heck, NSMB is still selling on the WIi. I think people care too much about the fact that Knack outsold Mario in the UK.

Only in bizarro world, my friend.

The U.K. is such an insignificant market.

Quite possibly. Knack is selling well and even beating the latest Mario game.

#10 Edited by StrongDeadlift (5138 posts) -

No. Dear God, no.

#11 Posted by XboxDone74 (2047 posts) -

He's well on his way. Outselling the latest Mario game was a big step.

I'm afraid it just....

doesn't have the knack for it.

What about a Ryse? I mean we did just find out the other day that Ryse is pretty much Knack for grown ups.

Mario is bigger than MICKEY FCKNG MOUSE. No chance, sorry.

#15 Edited by Caseytappy (2127 posts) -

Sure !

Like Kabuki warriors took over from Streetfighter remember ?

#16 Posted by AtariKidX (6201 posts) -

yes

#17 Posted by lhughey (4221 posts) -

The reason its selling is because there aren't many games available. That number of games is even less when you're trying to buy age appropriate games for people.

LOL reaching

#19 Posted by NFJSupreme (5119 posts) -

Lol no. Knack could sell 100 million units and it still wouldn't be bigger than Mario. Mario is synonymous with gaming. Knack is synonymous with flopping.

#21 Posted by shawn30 (4361 posts) -

never in a million years. Not even close. IMHO Nintendo should get out of the console business and just focus on making games. The new Mario seems to be a brilliant game but few will play it cause almost no one wants a Wii-U.

Knack will be easily forgotten. Its not going anywhere.

#22 Posted by Muffin2020 (527 posts) -

Zero chance.

People who buy a WiiU (All ten of them) in the years to come will buy Mario. People who buy a PS4 years to come will look at Knack in the £5.00 pre owned section and drop in in horror.

oh you were being serious?....lol.

#24 Posted by RimacBugatti (1189 posts) -

I played a demo of Knack and it was fun but the environments look last gen.

4/10

If a halfway competent hack n slash like God of War never became bigger than Mario, what chance does a bad Hack n Slash have?

#27 Posted by Willy105 (24495 posts) -

Knack will stop selling after it's first month; but if past Mario games is an indication, 3D World will still be sold at full price in 2023.

This thread is gold.

Erm, Knack is not a HnS, it's a beat'em up, totally different.

#30 Posted by Netret0120 (1996 posts) -

lol i am a sony supporter but LMFAO!!! Mario will always be Mario. It's Mario!!!

#31 Edited by super600 (30106 posts) -

There is no chance of Knack beating super Mario 3d world in LTD worldwide.

I remember when Red Steel sold a bunch of copies in 2006.

#33 Edited by starwarsjunky (24714 posts) -

this just made my day.

#34 Posted by Joedgabe (5092 posts) -

I hope in the near future there's a Game released for the Wii U that beats mario. That'd be quite a victory.

Blue, this is what I'm talking about.

Cancer. I'm going to die of it reading threads and thread titles like this.

#36 Posted by turtlethetaffer (16609 posts) -

4/ 10.

IGN gave it like a 5.5, and they tend to overrated things a lot.

That should say something.

#37 Posted by Shewgenja (8298 posts) -

Knack already is bigger than Mario.

#38 Posted by Shewgenja (8298 posts) -

And yes, I am being facetious.

#39 Posted by YearoftheSnake5 (7050 posts) -

No. Dear God, no.

Agreed. The future is indeed bleak, if it is the case.

Only in bizarro world, my friend.

I wonder how Mario and Knack are doing in the rest of the world. We only keep hearing about how its doing in the UK...

#41 Posted by turtlethetaffer (16609 posts) -

@R4gn4r0k: Probably because the sales in other regions are mediocre at best.

#47 Edited by Phreek300 (171 posts) -

I'd say no. It will surpass Mario. That actually seems like a silly question. Knack is at best a decent platformer compared to Mario. It may end up selling well In the long run but it will never be better than Mario.

#48 Posted by thedork_knight (866 posts) -

@Sweenix: i cant believe you thought something that stupid

#49 Posted by Crypt_mx (3947 posts) -

So suddenly sales represent the quality of a game. I guess CoD is a masterpiece.

You'd have to either be a cow, or full on stupid to compare a "Meh" game to the poster boy for platformers. Mario wins in every category hands down.

Not strange with the current losses of the WiiU, if that 6 billion number is to believed, which I doubt. Maybe 6 billion yen.
