Based on info gleaned from Major Nelson's weekly Top Ten lists (sans data from the week ending February 2), GamerBytes
has compiled a list of the top selling Xbox Live Arcade titles in February.
Topping the charts is the EA Sports Freestyle-branded arcade game, 3-on-3 NHL Arcade
with strong showings from the pricey R-Type Dimensions
(following an end of the month Deal of the Week sale
). Most surprisingly was the interest in Minesweeper Flags
, which hovered within the top ten for two weeks in a row -- even though every Windows PC ships with a version of the game!
Not faring as well last month were Death Tank
(the Sega Saturn Duke Nukem 3D
mini-game remake of Death Tank Zwei,
priced at 1200
) and Exit 2
, which both failed to capture much attention upon release. The Maw
was a notable entry, firmly holding onto a spot all month following a January release (which GamerBytes notes is a rare feat for XBLA
releases). Of course, the most important thing to take away from this is that none of the aforementioned titles were Peggle
, which is everyone's new virtual cocaine. We bow to our Unicorn masters.
