As is easy to see Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and PlayStation 4 do reign at the top of the charts, but what can’t be ignored is the dominance of 3DS titles in the list, as well as the 3DS handheld console itself. With the device holding 2nd, 5th, 7th, and 9th positions on the charts, if these were added together the 3DS would easily outmatch other consoles.

The Wii U hasn’t done badly either with 20,000 units sold. The Xbox One sits at the bottom of the chart with only 524 sold.
