Needs a separate thread :P
PS4 exclusive Knack debuts at 13 ahead of Super Mario 3D World on Wii U at 14. Yes, Knack sold more than Mario.
This topic is locked from further discussion.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Knack = Ryse
Deal with it lem
I have played Knack.............have you played Ryse? Deal with yourself Peasant.
@Shewgenja: Guess what's going to end up being returned to the stores and sold used on pennies?
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.
