Best Selling Games of 2010; CoD wins (again!)

The association for UK Interactive Entertainment have today released it’s list of the top selling games of 2010, and unsurprisingly at the top of the list is Call of Duty: Black Ops, to add to the fact that Modern Warfare 2 dominated the market in 2009.  To me there aren’t really many shocks, I would perhaps have expected Halo: Reach to maybe get into the top 5, and Red Dead Redemption (aka. Grand Theft Horse) to be beaten to the top by Just Dance was kind of surprising, Just Dance 2 wasn’t far behind either.

Whilst Halo Reach sales figures were impressive, and reported as being staggering (300,000 in the first day in the UK), it has failed to make it into the XBox 360 top 2 games, being beaten by Fifa 11. The playstation chart was unsurprising to say the least…

The surprise winner for me was in the Nintendo DS catagory, I was pleased to see Professor Layton winning in this class.  The DS was such a novel games console, and a lot of the games that have come out for it are underrated.  The original Professor Layton game was class, and the games have just got better and better, so it’s nice to know that it was a top seller. I have and always will be a lover of the Pokemon games as well, so it’s nice to see SoulSilver up high! [PiiiiikkkkaaaaCHUUUUU! *zap*]

    Wow, AC: Brotherhood did well for only coming out in Nov! But CoD is pretty awesome.

    • I thought that about AC: Brotherhood as well, top 5’d Xbox & PS3 and top 10 overall. I was shocked! I’m trying to get myself into it at the moment…but I’m still (somehow) forcing myself to play Final Fantasy XIII 🙁
