RE: JAPAN: More Than 300k Sold
Personally, I expected Mario Kart Wii to be at 85.2 DKP (852K sold first week). I didn't remember how I arrived at those #, but I think it is based on Mario Kart : Double Dash performance.
I didn't expect Mario Kart Wii to be only 112k (11.2 DKP) like Mario Kart DS, because at the time of Mario Kart DS Release, there are 2.6 Million DS base, while when Mario Kart Wii release, it will have around 8.8 Million Wii base (3.38 times DS base when Mario Kart DS release), which will translate to somewhere around 3.38 x 112 = 350K first week.
Other factors :
- Wii is much more popular than DS at the time of Mario Kart release.
- There are Wii Wheel included free in Mario Kart Wii, which should made it more popular (attractive) to Wii gamer. (I am one of them).
I am sorry that I somehow mis-read that 112K Mario Kart DS first week as 112 DKP, which meant 1.12 Million
