Xbox Live Has its Best March Sales to Date

As the retail space is starting to see signs of recovery, online game sales seem to be improving as well. GamesIndustry.biz reports that March 2010 was a record-setting month for Xbox Live Arcade sales. According to the market research firm Forecasting and Analyzing Digital Entertainment (FADE), March sales topped $10 million for the first time ever, amounting to a 41% increase over 2009. This is fresh off the heels of a disappointing February, which brought in a mere $6.8 million according to estimates.
The firm cites Microsoft’s Block Party promotion, particularly the tower defense title Toy Soldiers. It was the month’s biggest seller at an estimated 209,000 downloads, or $3.14 million in dollar form. Perfect Dark took second place with 161,000 downloads amounting to $1.61 million. Scrap Metal, also part of the Block Party promotion, came in seventh place with about $270,000 in revenue. The full list of FADE sales estimates is below:


Toy Soliders - 209,000 units ($3.14m)
Perfect Dark - 161,000 units ($1.61m)
Trials HD - 53,000 units ($0.80m)
Battlefield 1943 - 37,000 units ($0.56m)
Castle Crashers - 34,000 units ($0.51m)
Hasbro Family Game Night - 32,000 units ($0.32m)
Scrap Metal - 18,000 units ($0.27m)
Marvel vs. Capcom - 25,000 units ($0.25m)
Shadow Complex - 13,000 units ($0.20m)
Magic: The Gathering - 16,000 units ($0.16m)
