The Best Selling Games So Far This Year Are…

Written by on    

Despite being released in late May, Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption has already become the best selling game in the first half of 2010. The NPD Group has released figures detailing which games have sold the most between January and June of this year and surprisingly there’s not a Final Fantasy, Heavy Rain or Mass Effect in sight. The Nintendo systems dominated the individual platform charts with seven titles in the top 10, six of which they published themselves. God Of War III took the fourth slot which is an incredible feat for a PS3 exclusive and (shock/horror) MW2 has continued to sell bucket loads on the Xbox 360.

Here is a full run-down below (please note these numbers are for US retail games only):
