Yes, but only because Mario Kart is a port.

Those Playstation digital cards though.

Seriously though, Odyssey will be huge. With BOTW, it was split between systems (Mario Kraft as well). I think it will be the best seller until some lightning in the bottle game comes around.

Because using a credit card on PSN is the equivilent on sending a mass email out with a picture out of your credit card.

To many people have been scammed on PSN due to Sony's lackadaisical approach to account security.

At least in my country, my CC and Paypal doesn't work in the PSN so i need to buy cards if i want a digital game, thats weird because the Paypal in the Nintendo Eshop works great. Also people doesn't trust too much in the PSN security to put their CC info.

Thereís also a lot of people like me, Iím from South America but I use a NA PSN account, so I have to buy PSN cards on amazon because Sony wonít accept my credit card.

Also, because as already said here, Sony doesnít inspire much trust.

I think Mario Odyssey is gonna be massive. Technically it isn't even out yet. Luckily, Amazon has already shipped my copy so my wife is pumped right now. I have to finish my game or at least get further in it before tomorrow....

Definitely. Never leave your credit card information on the PSN. Just buy PSN cards and call it a day.

All the reasons above, but Also due to the fact that regularly you can get 5 or 10$ off @amazon with Some deal.

Which us perfect for 10$ PSN cards. Ppl basically got them for free!

I wonder how much Odyssey has sold since Botw has sold almost 2 million in the US alone.

Zelda has already sold 5 million between the two versions in the first few months, that's pretty incredible actually. It's almost certain it'll end up the best selling Zelda, at least if you don't count the Ocarina 3ds version.

Many people ( including me ) are buying NA PSN cards because it's the cheapest option for digital games, 70Ä on my European store vs 50Ä on the US one...

I've already purchased the game twice already. For myself and for daughter (Christmas gift) so she can play the game when she's at her mother's place.

Can't wait to play :)
