Link’s Crossbow Training outsells Skyward Sword

While considered by many to be merely a mini-game collection Link’s Crossbow Training has sold more copies than the latest title in the Zelda series: Skyward Sword. For those unfamiliar with the game, Link’s Crossbow Training, which is a scrolling shooter game set in a post-Twilight Princess Hyrule, asks the player to use the Wii Remote as a crossbow to shoot the many monsters and targets scattered throughout the land to destroy of the last of Ganondorf’s evil. (Link's Crossbow Training, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Wii)

The only reason Link's Crossbow Training sold better was because it was a pack-in that came with the Wii Zapper, a peripheral that many people wanted. That doesn't mean it's a better game than Skyward Sword.

Christ, Wii Sports sold 100 million copies and is the best selling video game ever. Understand how that statement isn't entirely accurate? The only reason it sold so well is because it was a pack-in with the Wii. Mario Kart sold 30 million and is a much better game than Wii Sports.

Wasn't a pack in for all regions. Just saying.
