Forums - Sales Discussion - An Early Look (3 weeks before 2010 ends) at Top Multiplats of 2010

Assembled this a minute ago. Software is getting more and more concentrated amongst the major publishers, but with the bases so huge now, if you have a hit, you're fairly likely not just to hit a home run, but a Grand Slam.

It was actually a pretty good year for exclusives. Not too much multiplatform stuff did exceptionally well this year. Only the big action, sports, and shooter games really. This list should change a fair bit yet, even with three weeks until the end of the year. Just Dance 2 sold 550k last week and isn't far from the top ten as is. Could climb to over 4m by year end. Brotherhood should climb a fair bit yet too. GT5 will climb alot, as will Mario Kart, NSMB Wii, Galaxy 2, WSR, Wii Sports, and Just Dance 1 (will top 5m by year end looks like, 4.3m in 2010?). I'm also expecting Wii Party to break into the top 20 somehow. The bottom of the list should be at least 4m by year end.

So the Wii has the best seling exclusive 3rd party title this year.  Who saw that coming?



The rEVOLution is not being televised

Damn People.Why y'all aint buy GOW3 in larger quantities. Kratos could have made the list.

Sorry Kratos. Forgive the people of Earth.

 

but then GT5 wouldn't have made the list. *sigh* We Sony fans never catch a break.

more like who in their right mind thought Just Dance would sell even 100 k. It turned out to be a mega-hit for Ubi.



Wow Wiidomination in top 5, Halo Reach the highest selling exclusive for the year that is part of the HD gang. MW2, those are some legs, between January and up till now, 5.8M copies sold, more so than BFBC2 which LAUNCHED this year. Bad times for gamers as I personally thought BFBC2 was a much better game :(



Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

those are some good legs for mw2



So FIFA is now easily EA's biggest yearly sports IP. I thought Madden used to be the bigger of the 2?



And as I predicted, NSMB Wii wii be the yea's single platform and-not-so-much bundled biggest selers. Even I didn't see it outselling Black Ops.



Above: still the best game of the year.
