UK Charts: Mario Kart 8 Still Hovering In Top 5 For Fourth Consecutive Week

This week’s UK charts are in courtesy of GFK Chart Track. For the fourth consecutive week, Mario Kart 8 is still drumming up sales for Nintendo’s latest home console and sticks within the top 5, placing at number 4. The popular Kart title is showing Watch Dogs no mercy as it sticks fast behind the hacking game. However, both games are overtaken this week by EA’s new release EA Sports UFC, which takes both the first and second spots in the individual charts.

For the third week, Nintendo’s quirky life simulation title Tomodachi Life remains in the top 20, though slips from 12 to 17 this week, while Pokemon Y rounds out the individual top 40 and places at 39. You can check out the UK top 40 below.

    1. Yeah! And can’t even win a single match at the soccer world cup in brazil! Better start to be crazy about playin sport in the real life.

  1. How the FUCK did a sports game claim top spot? That’s it, I give up. Gamers these days are fucking stupid.

    1. so because people like sports games their crazy. how about you grown men and women in their late 20s, 30s and 40s still playing games that caters to 3 year olds and are rehashes.

      1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

        These abominations are not even real games, they only cater to the civilian garbage…

      2. Calls Nintendo games rehashes, yet praises EA sports games…

        Yeah, and about the grown men part? Pro tip: Maybe you shouldn’t say that when you still watch Naruto pal.

        1. He talks so strange. It’s really hard to understand what he is mumbling about when cars drive next to him.

      3. butthurt detected!!! mario kart 8 is still selling good XD
        I’m 15 years old and i’m better than you in videogames, you’re a 40 year old loser with a glandular issue that’s the reason you look like a dwarf

          1. he looks like a old man from my neighborhood who is 40 or 50 years old. it’s like sasori were htat man long lost twin.

          2. he can have more than 20 yrs if he has a glandular disease. look at his nose, ears and lips. he has something irregular on his DNA.

      4. No, it’s called grown men wasting their fucking money repeatedly to the same garbage every year. “Oh I don’t like rehashed Mario games. But I payed $60 at launch for every NBA 2K game!” Hypocrites…

    2. well at least some of them play sport and like to play sport on console. It may not be your type game (and UFC is really really not my type) but I don’t see why sport games should be trash or gamers who like those game to be call stupid. It’s like other gamer saying that playing Nintendo game are fucking stupid.

  2. Pretty impressive that Mario Kart 8 is hanging in there that long. I expected Watch Dogs to outsell it, but it’s on basically every platform. So that’s really not that big of an accomplishment for Ubisoft. It’s amazing how Mario can move consoles.

  3. Looking at this, it think MK8 outsold Watch Dogs in UK, if we look at induvidual console sales. That is a big thing, this game has sold far over my expectations!

    1. for some reason, Watch Dogs, is cool, but not a constant game seller

      Mario Kart, on the other hand, has the ability to keep on selling for at least 1 year round, while watch dogs can sell on its first months

      your argument is not really useful, vain and very idiotic coming from a narutard, which surprises me, they tend to be a little more intelligent than you

    2. How is WD trashing MK8? In fact, Mario Kart is outselling every version of Watch Dogs save for the PS4 version. Think about it, it’s outselling Watch Dogs on platforms with a combined install base of more than 160 million (PS3 and 360)

    3. And Watch Dogs is on how many platforms again? SMH……please if you’re gonna be a troll, be one that has common sense

    4. Because it was released on five fucking platforms. Know your numbers bitch. According to the facts, this means that Watchpuppies should have sold at least five times more, but it didn’t. Mario Kart 8 trashed it.

    5. Actually, look again. last time watch dogs had all three spots out of five, where was Mario Kart 8? Third place. Now look at it, only one copy of the game, watch dogs, is up there and what’s right behind it? If you had a brain, you would know what’s about to happen next and its not going to be pretty on your brain as it dances.

      1. The PS4 version has been outselling Mario Kart 8 since launch, and look at the top of the charts? I see a PS4 game there

          1. How would you know if its ‘barely’?
            Mario Kart could have sold x units, and PS4 Watch Dogs could have sold, like, x+100000 units

            1. You ponies are hyping up multiplats instead your own 1st party games LOL. I guess even you guys know your exclusives are monkey shit. It’s no wonder why the Wii U is kicking the shit out of the PS4 in Japan….NO GAMES

          2. PS4 owners buy lots of third party games because PS4 exclusives aren’t worth playing this moment. Even Xbox One’s Fighter Within sold more than Infamous: Second Son.

            1. lololololololol

              Not to mention, both the Wii U and Xbox One have way better games being released this year and next year than the PS4

              1. Not really. These are the games coming out in JUST 2014:

                The Elder Scrolls Online
                Snap out of your delusion. The PS4 is crushing the competition, like it or not

                  1. You can blame GameSpot for that. So, 1 less game for a system looking set to have a fuckload of games coming out for it. Next!

                1. Oh wow… Almost all of those games I can get on my PC… and you’re really using kids games an accuse as to why the PSBore is dominating… yep, damage control 101 XD

                  1. And why put PVZ Garden Warfare and Transformers? How the fuck are they system sellers? And aren’t these normally the type of games you don’t you care for? Anyway, the game is on Xbox One, PC, 3DS, Wii U, (Transformers) and last gen. And you put Shantae? You fucking retard. Most of that series games are on Nintendo platforms. Hypocrisy all over your fucking posts…

                    1. Did I say they were systems sellers? Must they be system sellers when PS4 is already selling out everywhere? I might have respected you, but then again, anyone who calls people retards when they state the truth must be one. And anyone who thinks that ANY third parties are on Wii U is blind. Hypocrisy all over your fucking posts…

                  2. So what if it’s on a weaker console? Almost NONE of these are coming to Wii U, that’s the sadder part. This guy is retarted.

                    1. So? I own a Wii U and an Xbox One and a PS3 so I’m not missing out on ANYTHING. You however, limit yourself to only one fucking company. A company who doesn’t give a shit about you. Weaker hardware my ass. So if I buy the new Shantae game on my Xbox One, it’s suddenly gonna have better graphics? Lol no the fuck it isn’t. And even if it did, I’d still get it on Wii U. You know why? Because FUCK YOU. :)

                    2. I also got a PS4 today bitch. Have fun in the fucking forums posing as a Sony soldier as I actually justify my purchase by actually playing Sony’s games instead of sucking their dick.

            2. “Even Xbox One’s Fighter Within sold more than Infamous: Second Son”
              LOL, where did you get that from?

              And yeah, obviously we Sony fans would get third party games since they are the definitive editions, 1080P 60 FPS

                  1. No, we mean the hardware where they have amazing Steam sales and you can enjoy playing Half Life which was released over a fucking decade ago and then go back to playing 2012 Far Cry 3 with way better graphics tan Infamous Second Son. Yes, THAT piece of hardware.

                  2. Dying?
                    No wonder “next-gen” had to use weak x86 variants.
                    Sony couldn’t afford better, and Microsoft was just too cheap.

                      1. You might be thinking of consumer laptops and desktop PC’s, that aren’t for gaming in the first place.

                1. Again, how is it being butthurt? I said that Japan has turned into a casual gaming scene, which is true. Look at the sales charts, the top selling console doesn’t even touch 30K. Maybe your criteria for NOT being butthurt is by over-excessive winking hmm? ;)

          1. So that’s why Sony is decreasing first-party support for the PlayStation Vita and focusing on indies.

                  Damage control? Not really

                      1. ^Lol this dumbass doesn’t realize that I own multiple consoles. And I’M THE FANBOY? HA! You’re a fucking joke. I bet you don’t even have a PS4 you fucking poser. But I do, thank you very much. Why don’t you go suck Shuhei Yoshida’s dick while I enjoy Tomb Raider on my PS4. ;)

                  1. MK8 > Your list of games that will be forgotten in a month or so! You are a complete joke!! Nice try, attention whore!!!

                    1. Say what you want, commander, but it shall be far more recognized 20 years later than the casual hardware your empire produces

                      1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                        As if the civilian aspects of our empire has any meaning to me at all…

                      2. It will be recognized as handheld people play only in home. It’s just too big to fit in normal pockets and those sticks doesn’t help at all.

                      3. Casual hardware & yet hardcore gameplay. Platforms that tend to have hardcore specs & audiovisuals tend to have casual gameplay. Save maybe a PC gaming rig. Too expensive for devs to create solid gameplay & design puzzles. Far easier to just focus on graphics & a publisher can just show a video to attract the consumer. Sony lost its way after PS2. Forget the games, it’s all about hardware, & higher dev costs. & what falls on the cutting-room floor? Solid, lengthy gameplay & all around creativity. Welcome to the institution. I wish games had two different adjective, because the same thing happens w/ in the movie industry: films are dying.

                      4. Considering the games are the main point, I wouldn’t be surprised. PS Vita might be lauded for its hardware, but not much else. Actually, strong hardware is also its weakness (costly to consumers (& those proprietary mem cards), & costly for devs. But no incentive to hone gameplay or nurture creativity when it’s all about the graphics.

                        Meanwhile, 3DS games will be immortalized.

                  1. The Vita? A legend? HAHAHAHAHA! Those two words don’t go together, and if you actually believe that, your one of Sony’s many cocksuckers.

            xD Nice way to damage control Sony getting it’s ass beat by Nintendo in their home country.

      1. I really enjoyed THQ’s UFC games but that new EA’s UFC is just awful. Buttons are horrible and game feels, looks and sounds like shadow fighting. You will hear audience yelling all the time but can’t hear any real noise from hits. Good there was demo version so i didn’t bought it.

    1. I really don’t understand why people have to try and prove that their preferred console has more games than the others by writing down all of these games in a list. U don’t have to prove anything to anybody I personally prefer nintendo but I don’t try to prove that my system of choice is better. I prove it to my self by playing the damn system. Just have fun and play the fucking games smh

      1. Because people are fanboys. They can’t afford the other system, so instead of saving up to by it like normal people, they bash it. People are retarted. There’s only so many true gamers out there nowadays… If I had enough money, I’d get every system. People like to worship pieces of plastic I guess.

    2. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

      The UK are suckers for sports games, aren’t they? Nothing really wrong with that. BUT… EA is the shitty company it is now because people buy their sports games even if they are glitched as hell or full of day one DLC or microtransactions. As long as EA has a chokehold on the sports genre of video games, they’ll never change because they know sports fans won’t have any other choice but to buy their games with bullshit development. It’s time to leave your house & go to a park for an outdoor sport or a gym for an indoor sport. Least with those, they are free & you get the best graphics that no video game can ever create: real life. Not to mention it’s good for your physical health.
