Watch Dogs and Mario Kart are numbers one and two in sales this week, and both are doing great things for their companies. Watch Dogs sold 4 million copies in its first week, breaking Ubisoft's record and becoming its best selling game in its first week. Meanwhile, Mario Kart 8 sold 1.2 million copies in its first weekend. 82% of those sold in the UK were bundled with a Wii U. In a statement, Reggie Fils-Aime said, "The early response to Mario Kart 8 demonstrates that the best days for Wii U are still ahead. This year's E3 is just days away, and it will be all about the future games for Nintendo platforms. This milestone is a great place to start!"

Nintendo won't release mobile versions of their games, but we do get an official application for Mario Kart that will let you share gameplay footage and screenshots, and access rankings:

Our policy is to establish consumer relationships based on accounts named Nintendo Network IDs, which are abbreviated as NNIDs," Iwata said. "This 'Mario Kart TV' (temp.) web service is available even for players without NNIDs, but by logging into the service with an NNID, they will be able to easily find their rankings, videos that their friends have shared, videos of tournaments in which they have participated, and it will be convenient to access this service through smart devices even when they are not at home.
