Um...why the heck is this adjusted down?
When I joined VGChartz last december
this was at like 4.4 million.

Isn't this adjusted?

It's adjusted,
it was over 4m for sure. Adjusted down
which is hilareous, because it is most
definitely undertracked. VGC already
took over a year to match Nintendo's
published numbers back in 2012 so this
is not exactly credible.

You know a franchise has some serious
power when you do almost no promotion
and your E3 presentations for it are bad
and the game launches on a dying
platform but the thing STILL sells 4mil,
STILL gets nominated for numerous
awards, and STILL wins multiple large
publications GOTY awards. In the same
year Skyrim and Arkham City launched.

I love ths game. Nintendo needs to fix
the timing of their Zelda release cycle.
You can't release a game of this class
and scope right before a console is
phased out, when public interest for the
system has died down.
