The UK's Best Selling Games Of 2010

Two words - sounds like "Smack Pops"

The UKIE (The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment) have released charts for the best selling games of 2010, and you win absolutely zero TSA points if you guessed Call Of Duty: Black Ops shifted the most units.

Sadly the charts show that new and original games floundered badly as there are only three new IP’s spread between all eight charts, namely LittleBigPlanet on the PSP, Art Academy on the DS, and Just Dance on the Wii.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops tops the all formats, PS3 and Xbox 360 charts, and Professor Layton and the Lost Future replicates last year’s top spot for Professor Layton and the Lost Village on the DS.

Wii owners seem to be the most active with four out of the top five titles requiring you to get up and move rather than slouch on the sofa.

    Funny how the 3rd place only changes in PS3 and Xbox charts, and they are both exclusives!

        It’s about the respective exclusives selling enough to be in the same position on each respective chart. It is a little funny/odd/peculiar.

    Perhaps no surprises, love the PC chart with entries from FM

    My understanding is that Just Dance was the top selling game of the year, beating both Black Ops PS3 and Black Ops Xbox 360 and its only when they combine in the All Formats chart (as shown above) they they overcome the dance phenomenon

    If you look at the best selling newspapers or the biggest takings at the box office… Is it really any surprise? Any year? We all appear to love a little shameless entertainment from time to time. :-)

    Ignoring the top two. I’m surprised, and pleased that GT5 gets in there as high as it does for the PS3, but where’s NFS Hot Pursuit? Or Medal of Honor?

    I would love to ses the actual numbers for each individual title against each other and platform.

      At retail:

      i)Xbox 360 sold £538m worth of games consisting of 18.2m sales
      b) PS3 sold £414m worth of games consisting of just 13.8m sales

      I don’t know how that translates into individual titles though

      3) Don’t know about Ninty or PC, but total gaming revenue including consoles, games & accessories was £2.875bn revenue down from £3.3bn the year before

      I don’t know how that translates into individual titles though

        I imagine the XBOX 360 hardware figures to be higher than the PS3′s hardware figures due to the lack of reliablity of XBOX 360 consoles. We’ve all heard the stories of people having THREE Xbox 360′s…. It all adds up

    Be interesting to know how many were needed to get on the lists, I was at least expecting Heavy Rain to make the PS3 list as it sold a hell of a lot.

    How depressingly predictable, at what stage do analysts think people will tire of sequels?

    Anyone happen to know what the US version of these lists are? I’m just wondering if they are basically the same, or dramatically different?

        Yep… that is one difference I was guessing, and possibly seeing RDR a little higher? I personally played the crap out of that game. :)

    Gran Turismo 5 must’ve sold like hot cakes to be ahead of Red Dead Redemption which was released way before…..

    Not that surprising, although I didn’t that Just Dance was quite that popular.
