10% of retail, which doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

So that 500K is only from the digital versions off games that are also on disc? Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Ryse, Battlefield 4 Etc?

Not sales from digital only like Killer Instinct, Spartan Assault, Peggle 2, Crimson dragon etc?

Very sure it's from the games that aren't online only.

90-10 breakdown is a pretty common one for console games. Handhelds are rather similar as well. Honestly 10% is even kinda low considering it's a more modern console and the industry is supposedly changing to become more online centric.

Looks like Minecraft is approaching the 12 million mark.



Thanks to Carl for pointing me to it.

Minecraft Creeps Past 12 Million Sold on Xbox 360



Around the Network

After all this time only a short update:

CastleMinerZ broke 2m sales and is therefore still the best selling Indie game.



Wow 12 million for Minecraft is phenomenal.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

360, the indie-console nobody cares nowadays for



Due to some ... recent events *cough*, I was able to get the most up to date (Feb 2014) sales for Fez.



Everyone seems surprised that certain titles didn't make the list.

Here's the bottom line: There's a lot of great titles on XBLA, buty many go undiscovered and face fierce competition for top of the heap XBLA games like Minecraft, Doritos Crash Course, and Sonic 2.

XBLA as a whole lacks discoverability and its sales are weaker than widely presumed.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016
