Nintendo says today that 45% of Mario Kart DS buyers have taken their skillz online in the very first week of the Nintendo Wifi Connection. The DS Wifi marvel of a game has sold 112,000 copies in its first 7 days in the US. Out of those 112k, upwards of 52,000 unique players have challenged the world through Wifi. Sounds like a massive achievement.
With these incredible stats of just the first week of Nintendo wifi, is it safe to say the Revolution’s online capabilities will have a solid foundation? I think the answer is a resounding “duh”.
