XBLA Has Best Month Ever in August

This past August saw a 6% increase from last year’s Summer of Arcade promotion. In August alone, revue was estimated at $17.5 million dollars. Even some games that were not part of the Summer of Arcade deal, still made a huge impact on the numbers for August. Games such as Trails HD, which just hit the 1 million units sold mark this past August.

Here’s a breakdown on the top ten games, by revue for August 2010.

  1. Monday Night Combat (Uber Entertainment) – 187,000 units (1200 Microsoft Points)
  2. Castlevania: Harmony of Despair (Konami) – 131,000 units (1200 Microsoft Points)
  3. LIMBO (Playdead) – 128,000 units (1200 Microsoft Points)
  4. Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light (Crystal Dynamics) – 107,000 units (1200 Microsoft Points)
  5. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (Ubisoft) – 79,000 units (800 Microsoft Points)
  6. Hydro Thunder Hurricane (WB Games) – 50,000 units (1200 Microsoft Points)
  7. Trials HD (RedLynx, LTD) – 47,000 units (1200 Microsoft Points)
  8. Shank (Klei Entertainment Inc) – 41,000 units (1200 Microsoft Points)
  9. Deadliest Warrior (Pipeworks Software) – 55,000 units (800 Microsoft Points)
  10. Castle Crashers (The Behemoth) – 31,000 units (1200 Microsoft Points)

It seems, if done right, simple arcade games can be as popular as their disc counter-parts.

This is Summer of Arcade’s third year and clearly it’s best yet.
