2010’s Top Selling Games By Platform

Just Dance 2

The NPD’s new stance on not releasing sales data has caused all manner of consternation across the world, especially in message board threads where fanboys endlessly snipe at each other. But, even non-partisan minds have a curiosity about such things and thankfully, Gamasutra has managed to obtain some of the juicy details.

Breaking down the top ten games across each non-PC platform, we see that Just Dance 2 was the best-selling Wii game of the year and despite lukewarm reviews and a late entry, Epic Mickey managed to nab the 4th spot. Not as many Nintendo games as usual and some of the titles in the top 10 are likely unknown to most of us.

No real surprises anywhere else, except Fable III outsold Mass Effect 2 on the 360, which I consider a crime against all that is holy. Are there any other shockers that stand out to you here? Or has everything fallen about where you expect? GO!

  1. Yeah, looks about right I think. I was confused when I saw “Activision-Blizzard” beside Black Ops lol, thought it was some kind of sick joke.

  2. I’m surprised Donkey Kong Country was so high, not that I wasn’t expecting it to sell well, but rather considering it was released in December.
