This week we will be looking at the top 10 bestselling games on the Xbox 360. Last week we looked at the top 10 selling games on the Wii and the week before that the top 10 selling published by Square Enix. If there is a particular top 10 you want to see leave a comment and it may be featured in a future top 10.
Looking at the top 10 bestselling games for the Xbox 360, it is easy to see how much the Call of Duty franchise dominates the top 10. Five of the top 10 games are for the Call of Duty Franchise, two for the Halo franchise, and one a piece for the Kinect, Grand Theft Auto, and Gears of War franchises. Four of the top 10 games are exclusive, while the other six are on other platforms, mainly the PlayStation 3.
The five Call of Duty games sold a combined 56.04 million units or 11.21 million each on average. This is also 51.1 percent of the total games sold in the top 10. The two Halo games sold a combined 20.64 million units or 10.32 million each on average. This is also 18.8 percent of the total games sold in the top 10.
Taking a look at the top 10 bestselling games for the Xbox 360 all the games have had some sort of bundle to help boost sales, however Kinect Adventures! is the only game that has been bundled 100 percent of the time. For every Kinect that is sold, whether separate or with an Xbox 360 it comes with Kinect Adventures!
As a quick note the top five games sold more than 10 million units. Also the top 17 games sold more than five million units and the top 73 sold more than two million. 151 games sold more than one million units and 301 games sold more than 500,000 units.
