Charts: 12th December 2011 (UK)

Posted by James Newton

Not much movement on any of the all-time best sellers list — perhaps an indication more people are dropping their money on cartridge games like Super Mario 3D Land or Mario Kart 7, but Pullblox makes a good showing in the all software charts.

All-Time Best Sellers – All Downloads

Freakyforms and Zen Pinball 3D continue their respective climbs up the all-time chart, but it's Pullblox taking the headlines — after just five days on sale it's the 12th best-selling slice of software on the eShop. Who would have thought that original 3D content would sell well? Here's the top 20.

All-Time Best Sellers – 3DS Download Software

Pullblox is in at 5 in the all-time chart, but shame of all shames is seeing 3D Classics: TwinBee propping up the chart behind Urban Champion. TwinBee is good: Urban Champion isn't. Make your purchasing decisions wisely.

Downloaded the very fun Catrap, Kirby's Adventure, Zen Pinball and Lock 'N Chase this Friday. Ninty's move to let you pay in less than 10 € intervals screamed celebration to me.

Also: Y u not Dr. Mario, DSi ?

It's always nice to have charts rather than vague, circumstantial guesses on how well these things are doing. Looking forward to having time to play Pullblox soon....

Zen Pinball is fantastic. I also had a lot of fun with Freaky Forms. It's really amazing to see these games outselling in weeks what other games took years to achieve. It would be great to see numbers but this sounds like the download service is really taking off.
