2011's top sellers

Pushmo should be selling 100x more copies than every other game on the eShop combined.

Hmmm... I was almost 100% sure that Excitebike was top of the 3DSWare list.
Meh

I find it funny that Counting the Club nintendo give away's screws up the curve. Pretty sure Pushmmo,MSF, and Freakyforms would be at the top with them.

Excitebike isn't worth it. I expected Nintendo to at least update the stage creator, but they left everything the same as the NES version.

Mario vs DK: Mini's March Again is a very good game, but I deleted it once I bought the Mini Land Mayhem game card. No reason to have 2 games that are extremely similar.

Quite obviously the free codes for Xevious and DK brought those to the top. Pushmo would of course come next, and to the post above - I agree. I got it for free of course which is fine, but I wouldnt have actually spent money on it.
