I still just don't like DLC.
Optional sure, but it'll bug me if there are more tracks available that I don't have access to, because it'll just feel like I'm not getting the full experience that everyone else is, and I don't have the money to be paying extra for DLC all the time, I can barely afford the game to begin with.
Both situations leave me with the same number of tracks to enjoy, but just the existence of tracks that I don't own is really annoying.
For this reason Mario Golf has actually gone from a must buy game to an I sort of maybe want it but maybe some day if I have spare money game.

^^THIS I CAN RELATE TO^^

I like free DLC, but lets be real here... Nintendo most likely won't make free DLC for this game; it'll pretty much be paid instead.

Agreed with both of you! Hopefully Nintendo lets you sample a DLC track or cup in some form. I got about 16 bucks on my Eshop account. I hope none of the DLC costs over that.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I do plan on getting a PS4 someday :D

Does anyone know if Amazon.com will allow Release Day Delivery for this game, so far they haven't confirmed it yet.
I am going to spend a week at my mother's home at the very beginning of June and I'm still debating whether i should take my Wii U (for Mario Kart 8) or my PS3 or my PS4 (going with one system since i don't want to have to take too much baggage). Back in October, I was able to pre-order MK8 from Newegg for $50 with FREE SHIPPING, but i might pay the full price (and maybe a little more) to get it sooner.

Another scenario i am unsure of if anyone can help me out,
the (possible;estimated) file size for the digital download and if it will be available at midnight on the eShop.

I second that. Take a look at New Super Luigi U for example.

Or Pikmin 3 as another example, where the DLC isn't related to the main game story, but great for those who plays the challenges (I would gladly pay for more Bingo Battle courses).

I'm not sure what I feel about the Wii U Sports Club payment model, though.

I think that only works because Wii Sports is the kind of thing you play once while everyone is around. That model wouldn't make any sense for Mario Kart.

Most likely they will have release day delivery, but you have to pay for it to get it that quickly unless you have Prime.

all first party Nintendo releases are available at midnight, and a japanese site that sells download codes suggest MK8 is 4.9GB+
edit: Yes infact Amazon does, and I was lucky to get a student trial of Prime and pre-ordered the PC version of Watch_Dogs, my copy is scheduled to arrive on release day! so i imagine the same should be true for MK8 if you select two-day shipping or above.

That would truly be a "god-send" (to me at least), u know something to tide us over, then again, just 4 more weeks, if we waited this long, we could surely wait another 4 weeks. In reply to my comment before about my vacation, i am (as of now) plan on taking my Wii U, but i will be picking up a retail copy most likely to save space on my Wii U storage, even though MK8 would one of those games that i don't mind having installed digitally.

Careful, you're treading dangerous ground. Just don't be mad if the game gets delayed.

@BusterRed123 I'll let you know after I play through MK7.

@brewsky All things considered, I severely doubt that will happen.

Ugh..

IF they do it they better not half-donkey it & skip out on a mute feature. I want to be able to choose in the options menu that I don't want to hear any voice chat, ever.
Please watch the profanity — TBD

I am excited for this but also worried. Just like the Kinect with the Xbox One, everyone and their mother is going to be talking. Screaming kids, loud music, and humming/singing. Lovely

That's probably the way it's going to be implemented. Features like the mii universe features have always been optional in the existing Wii U games.

Actually, I think it's the other way around with MK8. I think it has been ready (except for the QA testing perhaps) for some time. A specific release date was set very early on MK8. And the MK8 release date plays well with the upcoming E3.

Current Top 10: DK:TF, Pikmin 3, MK8, Stealth Inc. 2, Scram Kitty, SM3DW, LEGO City: Undercover, Bayonetta 1+2, SSB U, Rayman Legends
