    The Five Best-Selling Video Games in the World!

    Sponsored Links
    One of the most feel-good stories of the year has got to be the unholy alliance between NPD/GfK/Enterbrain, that lets us see - every three months, at least - what the biggest-selling games are not in the US, Europe or Japan, but in the world.

    Last time we checked, the best-seller was GTA IV. This time around, for the quarter running from July-September? It's Madden. Madden, followed by daylight.

    1. Madden 09 - 2.994 million
    2. Wii Fit - 2.089 million
    3. Force Unleashed - 1.738 million
    4. Pokemon Platinum - 1.482 million
    5. Mario Kart Wii - 1.468 million

    What's even more interesting than the raw numbers is the percentage of those final tallies US sales comprise. For Madden, of the 2.994 million, 2.958 were in the US.

    Proving, in case Americans were unaware, how few people outside North America give a rat's arse about American Football. Yet for Wii Fit and Mario Kart, US numbers accounted for barely half of total sales: 1.283 million of 2.089 million for Wii Fit, and 856,000 of 1.468 million for Mario Kart Wii.

    I'm not even gonna research that info... no need to. There is no way Madden is the number one game in the world, when the U.S. is the only one that even cares for that crappy game. Right off the bat, I bet FIFA sells more than madden. Without researching, I bet it would be GTA4 or LBP. And the only reason we stupids Americans play Madden, is cause EA bought the rights cause they new 2K had there butts beat with 2K5.

    It does make me wonder also about that list, maybe the guy who posted the news originally is on something which i haven't figured out yet what he is on.

    Hah, I have never owned a sports game. I was never a big sports fan at all anyways. I agree that GTA IV should be one of those top-sellers. (Got it when it came out, and just started playing the online yesterday and loved it.)
