Mario Kart on the wii was probably the only awesome online game for the wii, I played that for months online. I'm excited for the new one and Smash Bros if they get their online for it right this time instead of the online for brawl being a huge lag fest.
So preorders opened on sunday for Mario kart 8 on amazon.com... But early Monday morning amazon had sold out of their guaranteed stock and has since temporarily made the game unavailable for purchase.
Less than a day....that's all it took.
An update. I talked to game reviewer IndieGamerChick who informed me that an initial shipment of a first party game for any system to amazon is 125 000 copies..... 125 000 copies sold out in less than a day....damn
