PS4 exclusive Knack debuts at 13 ahead of Super Mario 3D World on Wii U at 14. Yes, Knack sold more than Mario.

Well, I bought Super Mario 3D World and Knack...I think Super Mario 3D is obvious better, but I'm a big Mario fanatic.

If you like Platformers, you can't go too wrong. Knack is actually a decent game, it's just the kind of game you would play on PS2 gameplay wise. Not ambitious enough. If I only had $60, Super Mario would win my platforming dollards hands down....although World 1 was boring, the game picks up after that.

Again, more proof that SALES =/= QUALITY. Maybe there will be less sales threads, yeah?...yeah right.

Ouch, bummer for SMW3D. It looks like a much better purchase for me over Knack. I have yet to play either one, but that's my assessment just from looking at many videos of the two (reviews factor in a lil bit as well).

This is interesting data revealing that the PS4, in general, has incredible momentum. Does this mean Mario isn't a killer app franchise for the Wii U, or that the Wii U just isn't capable of garnering mass appeal? Or both? Maybe launching a big game like Mario during a competitor's incredibly popular console launch isn't a good idea? Maybe the core Wii U community just don't care about Mario like they used to (only 100K sold in Japan)? Many questions that I ask myself.

The biggest testament that sales doesn't = quality..

ITT: People raging over a game with a poor GS score that they've never tried over another game no one has tried and making broad claims about tastes of an entire country.

True. Thats why the 360 was the more popular console in UK

Surprised any American have teeth after their gross immaturity.

My teeth are fine btw, stereotyping is a huge sign of weakness, but not in my case, America is real lol.

@silversix_:

Meaning you have shitty taste, so you should keep your mouth shut.

#22 Posted by FoxbatAlpha (6192 posts) -

Does this mean Knack is a good game now or that people bought it by default, since there is nothing else to play on the PS4/10?????

We all know the answer.

Mario deserves to do way better than Knack.

Just like the PS4 hardware deserves to do better than the WiiU.

Knack = Ryse

Lol this so bad.

I guess this makes GSs pretty irrelevant. I'm pretty sure the people who bought Ryse would say the exact same thing too.

I hope they're still making Wii-Us by the time Bayonetta 2 comes out though, that's the only game I have to buy a Wii-U for.

I hope so either... i plan on getting a wii u within the next year :O

We all know the better product sales better. Sorry Mario maybe next year ;(

Knack is a test to see if cows will eat up mediocrity and hail it as gold; cows have pretty much proven this, expect more.

Happened with Resistance Fall of Man, what a shit game but everybody wanted to say it was great because it was the only launch game considered worth a damn... well, there was consequences to saying it was good, because they made two more equally shitty games afterwards, they didn't bother improving things either as gamers were too busy kissing ass and feigning satisfaction.. Don't make the same mistake twice cows, we don't need a trilogy of crappy Knack games to litter this gen. If you refuse this gruel they will make something better for you guys.

#32 Posted by pc-ps360 (3458 posts) -

this just proves cockroaches willing to playing anything just cause it exclusive. either way both games are offline games. those that play mario gets to hav fun while those that play knack pretend like they are having fun.

I think mario is a better game but just comes to show you the momentum Sony has

How is this a sign of poor taste?

It just goes to show how undesirable the Wii U is.

I'm sure if Mario was on PS4 nobody would even take a second look at Knack.

#38 Posted by Cali3350 (16130 posts) -

I enjoyed Knack a lot. You are all haters.

Admittedly Mario is the better game, so its a shame it sold poorly. But I hope Knack sells well. I wouldn't mind a sequel at all!

#39 Posted by Shewgenja (8519 posts) -

The gaming press got owned. No one gave a shit that the reviews tanked the game. They bought what looked fun and probably played well for them at the demo kiosks. The moneyhat stranglehold on gaming is losing it's grip. Seems people were too squeezed by playing it safe last gen.

#40 Edited by PurpleMan5000 (7058 posts) -

Well, if I owned a PS4, I would own Knack, too. It looks awful, but what else would I play?

with that annoying face i really don't care

#42 Edited by shawn30 (4364 posts) -

Sad day indeed, but Nintendo brought this on themselves. The Wii-U is simply becoming a disaster, and there are moment in business when you have to face facts that a particular product simply isn't working or likely to turn around. That day for the Big N is fast approaching.

#43 Posted by XboxDone74 (2047 posts) -

@AMD655: no, this is the one time I will agree with mems. you limeys need to start breeding with those off the island homeland. introduce some better oral genetics into the gene pool.

#44 Posted by XboxDone74 (2047 posts) -

Wow! Not only has Sony destroyed MS, but now also Nintendo.

Not even a solid mario game can save Wii U .....

I have played Knack.............have you played Ryse? Deal with yourself Peasant.

Yeah, I expect the lifetime sales of 3D World to completely dwarf those of Knack. Plus, that figure does not include digital sales, and Knack was included as a physical copy bundle for those poor souls who actually wanted it.
