"Red Dead Redemption one the biggest hits of the current generation is also the bestselling game for a new IP for Take-Two. "

What about that other Red Dead game, Revolver?

One of the few installments of these 'top 10 sales' charts with high quality games across the board, refreshing.

I'd really like for these charts to show combined sales. It would allow for more different games to be in the top 10 and it would better show how one game fared in general. The platform the game was on is secondary in my opinion, especially this gen when you have 50/50 sales across the HD twins for so many games.

This just shows that new IPs can be more successful than rehashing on past successes. I do consider GTA 3 to be a new IP as it completely reinvented the game and genre.

Interesting that GTA IV didn't do new releases with re-use of existing engine like GTA 3 did which surprisingly had increasing sales rather than diminishing.
