That is the number of copies of mario kart eight that were sold in the first weekend late may.

We are talking about gaming with the big e 3 conference nla.

Microsoft, with the xbox one and sony in the playstation 4. for nintendo, the wii u has struggled to stay part of the conversation.

Does mario have the ability to help save nintendo?

Definitely.

So many people love the characters that nintendo has made historic over the years.

One of the things we have heard out of the three is nintendo taking a page out of the book of sky landers with having collectible portions of mario and other characters that can be used to make more of the games interactive.

That is the power of what they have gotten.

We touched a bit on earl -- virtual reality, but what are you looking forward to most when it comes to virtual reality?

I think because we have this controversy of facebook versus sony, both of them interested in virtual reality, given that facebook in oculus are -- a that is more about communication.

Can they encourage game developers to come to their platform.

John erlichman will be at hee3. thank you so much for watching
