Edge lists top selling games of '08

Recommended Posts

Combining European and North American sales data, Edge has compiled a list of the top selling games of 2008. The figures are "guesstimates," due to the nature of how sales data is represented, but the site attempts to rank 60 games, all of which sold over a million copies. The top six are:

 

 

Grand Theft Auto IV - 13 million

Mario Kart Wii -11 million

Guitar Hero (various) - 10 million

Wii Fit - 9 million

Super Smash Bros. Brawl - 7 million

Call of Duty: World at War - 7 million

The findings nearly match the North American NPD figures, with the exception of Madden, which slides down once Europeans get thrown into the equation. We're checking with NPD to see if it plans to release another global report -- in conjunction with Chart-Track and Enterbrain -- to the public. What will we bicker and complain about otherwise?

GT5P in top ten. Imagine what will happen when GT5 releases. By then PS3 install base will be much much larger compared to 2007.

 

GT series has always sold in millions on PS platform. No surprises there.

Great. Now that they have major sales momentum its time to throw the Ninty faithful (like bulovski, Emo and myself) a bone by releasing something that's not shovelware.

 

there always will shovelware on the system,since it's the number 1 console,but this year's lineup is looking much better already :)

 

i think i'm saying this for the millionth time =P
