Mario Kart Sells Big, Wii U Updates to Celebrate

So it looks like after all the "complaints" about Mario kart 8 being 720p, "just another" Mario Kart and all the other bizarre bad press such as "rasist" was just nonsense.

Beware Luigi and his Soul piercing death stare
Mario Kart 8 has sold 1.3 million in 3 days. Not to shabby for a "sub HD party game on a dead console". The Wii U gained a shot in the arm too. UK sales have jumped 666% (witchcraft!) And 82% of those was the Mario Kart bundle. Nintendo has also offered a free game with purchases of Mario Kart 8, which os prpvong very popular. IF this sales momentum continues, if Nintendo can deliver at E3 and keep titles coming this could be the start of Nintendo's turn around for their home system.

Eager to please it's new system owners Nintendo has released an update for the Wii U, its mostly fixes and improvements but the major feature is Quick Start, now players can quickly log on and load recently played and installed games.
