If you own a Wii U and aren't playing Mario Kart 8right now, well, you have very different priorities than the rest of us. Perhaps this deal will be tempting enough for you to change your ways: Walmart and Amazon are both selling the game for $48.80 right now.
Considering you also get one free Wii U game by registering Mario Kart 8 on Club Nintendo -- Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, New Super Mario Bros. U, or Wii Party U here in North America -- that's a price worth jumping on. The game is ridiculously good fun.
