In the US apparently biggrin

US gamers seem to have a little more sense; reports are that Super Mario 3D World has sold over 200 000 copies in two days in the US, beating the 100 thousand copies Knack has sold so in the US thus far.

Knack should have been a PS+ title from the start.  Resogun + Knack.

Not really a surprise, even with low Wii U numbers (though we have to see what the jump is there from Black Friday).  Mario is an institution.  Knack is...well, it's alright. slywink

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

Much as I like Knack, this is how it should be.

If Knack was released on the Wii U, it would have been outsold by Mario  slywink
