    I think the zelda games are on top partly because they had consoles that came with digital downloads so anyone who bought that type of console downloaded those games

      No, this is a sales chart, not a downloads chart. Plus, both the 3DS and Wii U bundles came with their games preinstalled. No additional download or e-shop purchase required.

        Nope at least for the Wii U you had to download it it was not preinstalled.

        • doubleO7

          Well, I stand corrected. Coulda sworn it said it was preinstalled on the box.
