UK Charts: Tomodachi Life Rockets Into 6th, Mario Kart 8 In 7th

This week’s UK Charts are now in courtesy of GFK Chart-Track. It’s a surprisingly wonderful week for Tomodachi Life as it shoots into 6th position and ahead of Mario Kart 8 in 7th. The quirky life simulation game has no doubt been helped by Nintendo’s zealous marketing campaign and UK retailer GAME’s buy one get another half price deal in its online store. Maybe those in-game hypnotism sets are working on the players instead of our miis, but it’s clear Tomodachi Life is not moving out of the individual top 40 any time soon.

Continuing to hold onto the top spot is the PlayStation 4 version of Sniper Elite 3, which is closely followed by Watch Dogs, seemingly immovable and steadfast in the top 5. Make sure you check out the individual top 40 software chart below.

  1. Weren’t people saying MK8 will have long legs or something like that? That seems to be happening more with Watch Dogs, even with a lower average review score than Wii U’s savior

    1. Okay, troll, if you are going to keep doing this, you should at least try. MK8 did great in reviews, and sales have been great too!

      1. Wasn’t that what I said? Watch Dogs scored lower than MK8, yet it’s still in 2nd place while MK8 jumped down, what, 6 places in 2 weeks?

        1. 10th place*
          And yet it jumped back up to 6th Place

          Watch_Dogs on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC seem to have dropped completely meaning Watch_Dogs is slowing down in sales whilst MK8 is still going

          1. Ignoring the PS4 version
            And interesting thing to take note, in the all formats charts (which adds up sales of all versions), Watch Dogs is in second place

            1. Ignoring the fact I never mentioned the PS4.
              You do know most of the sales of Watch_Dogs came from multiple consoles but that is only one platform now meaning the game isn’t selling as much as it had before.

              Think kid.

              1. Ignoring the fact that I said you were ignoring the fact that you left out PS4. And thanks, you just agreed with me that Watch Dogs is outselling MK8 even though MK8 got higher review scores

                Think kid.

                1. You sound just like Sasori over this BS. Watch_Dogs sold more for only two reasons: 1. Its multiplat. 2. Just like the 12 million combined who got baited and bought Xbox One/PS4 expecting a “powerful” PC-like gaming got nothing but lacking library with gimped games and yet, as proof of their stupidity, don’t fucking care when they clearly buy what they bash and avoid Wii U over the same shit anyway.

                    1. Valve Admiral GLaDOS

                      And you seem to take things out of context like an idiot.
                      In what part of “MK8 has long legs” says “It will obliterate WD sales”.
                      Nowhere, long legs means, it will stay in the charts for a long time.

        2. Pretty sure MK8 kept its high place for three weeks straight, and as it hasn’t been marketed as much as the over-hyped Watch Dogs, and is on a ‘doomed’ console, it’s doing great!

          Also, you not reacting to the troll comment only proves it further..

          1. MK8 has a year long advertising campaign, I’m pretty sure that’s bigger than what Watch Dogs had. Also, it’s supposed to be the savior for the Wii U, yet it doesn’t seem to be turning Wii U’s fortunes around very much. So it failed in its goal.

            And what troll comment?

            1. Valve Admiral GLaDOS

              And the Ps4 is selling like hotcakes, but Sony is still losing money. Also, I don’t even know what you mean by MK8 failed, because from what I’m seeing, it’s succeeding, if your going to troll, could you at least make it sound more convincing?

            2. Quit going full retard *cough*akaSasoriMode*cough* on us, Shuhei. It did turn the Wii U’s fortunes around if you actually paid attention to the weeks it was out & even now the Wii U is still selling very well. Mario Kart 8+Nintendo’s victorious E3 is the beginning of the Wii U’s rise.

        3. Dude, you’re talking about the UK market – notoriously anti-Nintendo. Worldwide MK8 is indeed proving to have longer legs than Watch Dogs. MK8 actually climbed the UK charts this week.

        1. Valve Admiral GLaDOS

          And you ignore the fact that Sony is still losing money regardless of how good Ps4 is selling.

    1. *cough*7thGen’sSonyconsolewas pulverizedbyNintendo’s7thGenconsole*cough* So no, not always. You poor, foolish creature. Change Kratos out of your name. You are far from being a badass, kiddo.

  2. Mario Kart 8 is doing great, and ut’s a fantastic game. Sadly there’s only Smash left this year (and a few ‘hardcore’ games), but after seeing how big Smash was at the Nintendo Tournment, I think it will help even more. Next year is looking good, with Yoshi, Zelda, X, Splatoon and more. Cannot wait, I just hope Nintendo can rais awarenes around those, even though it will never be like MK8!

      1. This year, yeah! But looking at W101, it will be lucky to sell a million. Though it does have a fanbase, so I’m excited to see! Probably buying the game towards the end of the year, as I still have MK8, and will have Smash 3DS and Hyrule Warriors after the summer!

    1. Not for much longer, one soldier cannot fight an army, no mater how amazing the soldier is, MK8 needs back up, is loosing momentum. D:

      1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

        Still it’s UK, we stroke a vital blow in its heart this time…

        Now High Command has to send support…

        1. MK8: this is mk8, i finally got a firmed position on the UK charts….. It was a hard job, but is done, however this terrain is extremely hostile, i don’t think i can hold this position too long, at least not without black up. Nintendo please send back up, i hope i probed to be a good soldier……..

        2. The results are probably going to be disastrous for NA. MK8 will probably be down in 10th or something.

          1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

            Keep in mind that my Wii U is on repair so I won’t be able to play for atleast 1 week…

              1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                Good luck with that…

                Anyway, my Gamepad just suddenly started DC from the Wii U eveyr 3-6 minutes…

                Tried everything and still nothing so I just decided to take it to service…

                1. That’s really annoying. Something like that simmarlarly happened to me, but not to your scale.

                  It even dissconects when you are close to it? Because it does that to me even when I’m one room away…

                    1. Damn that really sucks…I bet that you were really pissed off when you realised it wouldn’t connect.

                      Good luck to you man….or…. cyborg

                      1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                        Of course, and angry at High Command for having defective Gamepads everywhere, not just me…

                        Thanks Egyptian “Dog”…


        1. At least it climbed up from the last list we’ve seen. Its still holding. Nintendo just needs to keep doing that year long campaign going to keep it afloat.

          That PS4 Watch_Dogs fad is only temporary because idiots still gets baited to buy POS gaming products claiming to be “next gen” when its not. For example: You can’t fucking punch anyone, story and some characters are stale as hell and multiplayer isnt great (Uplay BS). I rather wait for GTA5 port on PS4 then waste a single dime on Ubisoft’s game of lies.

      1. Well Mario Kart 8 was tenth last week and now up to seven. So next week will be interesting. I’m from the UK and have had my copy since day one. What I’ve noticed though is word of mouth going round about how great the game is. Quite a few people who were against the Wii U at the beginning are now suddenly grabbing one due to the game.

        1. At least that’s good to hear and with several more big games coming later this year and next, it’ll make the Wii U worth while for those guys.

          Still, I can’t believe idiots from everywhere are still stupid enough to get baited to buy what was originally promised as “next gen” like PS4 and Watchdogs which are nothing more than a gimped PC wet dream.

      2. Charts with 40 Entries are a bit much.

        Besides that: Most Stuff on List is Shooter and Sports, that’s kinda terrifying. Dear Developers, there are more Genres. =P

        1. I bet if the entire chart was filled with Nintendo platformers you guys won’t be complaining, would you?

          1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

            There are barely any Sonyan or Xbot games in there either…

            Only Electron and Ubisoftian crap…

          2. that the only genre the clowns like in general. they claim any game from third party devs is a shooter.

            1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

              Shooters on the chart = Sniper Elite 3, Watch Dogs, Titanfall, CoD Ghosts, Wolfeinstein, BF4…

              Sports = Fifa 14, 2014 Fifa Brazil, EA Sports UFC, Grid Autosport, Forza Motorsport…

              And you wonder why we think that, exposed for the Sixthillionth time…

            2. That’s all we see and all your dumbass raves about you degenerate retard.

              Shooters are the only thing the jackass 3rd party dishes out because 1. They got no other ideas left and 2. They know people these days have gone completetly stupid, boring and predictable to keep buying crap which you’re one of them, the biggest example of them all.

              So STFU and keep losing in BF3 trying to reach level 18 in the next 2 years noob.

          3. Now imagine Watchdogs being a one platform exclusive. When word gets out that its another “next gen” promise being a big lie just like 1080p-less Xbox One stuck at 720p and 900p only PS4, it won’t do so well won’t it?

            And I bet if the Wii U version was there with the others as it should’ve been, the sales chart would’ve looked different with the Wii U version being up there and I would’ve bought it but thank god they pushed it for me to realize what a POS it is.

            Doesn’t matter. MK8 will lasts longer and sale more in the end. Guaranteed.

              1. It’s a well known fact that Mario Kart tends to sell over the life span of the console it’s on. Even if it leaves the sales charts, it will still be selling. Will Ubisoft be able to say the same about Watch_Dogs two or three years later? Doubtful… especially if they release Watch_Dogs 2 before late 2016.

                1. So you won’t be tasting anyone’s tears, Shuhei. Now quit going full retard, aka Sasori mode, on us, dude.

      3. its funny how slivershadowfly put that image because there going to be an argument war in the comments.

              1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                Doesn’t matter, trolls are those who involve any subject not belonging to the site…

                  1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                    Most of the time you mostly include Sonyan arguments but I admit you’re not the worst in here by far…

                  2. Valve Admiral GLaDOS

                    Yes, you on topic, but you then put lies or ignorant phrases within you comment like a typical Sonyan damage controlling or trolling.

                    1. ^^This! This is exactly what Shuhei does at times! But the last two articles, he’s gone full retard, aka Sasori mode, on us.

          1. Hmmm, something smells fishy….
            Hey Sasori, I found your boyfriend from that video you made of playing over at his house on his Xbox 360.

            Seriously, you to a basically the same people.

            I’ll call you Chris Chan Jr the 2nd

          2. MK8 is still in the chart, and you promote your PSfor? with a game that is coming to the WiiU. Your arguments are useless! And you are not talking of tomodachi either! Try harder, sonyan fighter!

            1. Dude, Wii U Watchdogs is pretty much fucked anyway thanks to Ubiliars screwing Wii U gamers again the same as Rayman, pushing a completed Wii U port just to make an excuse to not make another game for Nintendo. Fuck that game and fuck Ubisoft. One of the only few of the 3rd party game that deserves our true support is Project Cars. Now that shit looks promising and if it does look that pretty on Wii U and runs well, then that game alone with indefinitely shut them fuckers up of their bashing on Wii U being “weak”

              1. It will look pretty on the wiiu, but i will not buy anything from UBI after what they have done with rayman! I was just pointing the fact that he was trolling.

            2. How are my arguments useless? I guarantee you the Wii U version will bomb harder than the Kinect. The Wii U is a dead casual console, get over it

              1. You must be talking about the Vita, right? Because the wiiU is still alive and ready to kick some sonyan ass! –Wiiu is dead/casual->typical casual troll language detected– get over it!!

              2. *facepalm* Shuhei is lost. He’s gone full retard aka Sasori Mode on us. Talking shit just like Sasori. You poor, poor thing. I see Sasori’s stupidity is contagious. We have to quarantine Shuhei & Sasori stat!

        1. Funny how you said you’d be leaving this site yet you’ve come back… I smell butthurt after all the pounding they gave you.

      4. Well it’s great to see MK and TL doing well here in the UK, though I do think Nintendo should’ve had another great Wii U title releasing around now. We have another two months before Hyrule Warriors.

        And while MK holds on to the top ten like a terrified toddler, EA Sports UFC has fallen down HARD after just two weeks. The good news just keeps rolling.
