Discrete charts are pretty unhelpful unfortunately. There is no measure of relativity to give us a clue.

I'm not really here!

Link: Shipment History Since 1995

Just Dance still amazes me.. Not only is 4 on the chart but also 3 and a spin off

Face the future.. Gamecenter ID: nikkom_nl (oh no he didn't!!)

Glad to see Donkey Kong Country Returns in the top 10 for the WIi.

Also:

"3. Angry Birds Trilogy
4. Mario Kart 7 "

O.o?!



I guess NintendoLand sales don't reflect the pack-ins.
UDraw must have benefited from heavy discounting (and hopefully not WiiU tablet confusion)
Surprised to see SMG/DKCR and not NSMBW & Mario Kart Wii in top 10. Guess it's the price. $20 vs $60
And despite all common sense to the contrary - Angry Birds Trilogy is a sale success! - Get a smartphone people!

Those Angry bird games should have been released individually on the eshop for no more than 2-5 each.  Just picked up Gunman Clive on eshop for 1.99 which is a better value than that overpriced Trilogy.



Wii-U tracking here has been pretty good on the whole, then, at least for November.

Only things I've noticed are:

- We have Blops 2 slightly higher than Scribblenauts Unlimited up to December 1st, but NPD has SU higher.

- We have Arkham City slightly higher thank Epic Mickey, but NPD has EM higher.

- We have Assassin's Creed 3 6k higher than both Sonic & Skylanders, but NPD has those two games as 9 + 10 with Assassin's Creed not in the chart.

They're all really minor amounts of numbers though, so perhaps just some small adjustments in the future.

Nice to see ZombiU and Scribblenauts so high on the list. Ubisoft most be happy about the ZombiU sales which is good news. Wonder if 3rd parties are happy with the sales, considering ports apparently cost less than 1 million to make (according to Ubisoft).
