Best and Worst Selling Video Game Titles This Week (#36 of 2011)

It’s obvious that the slew of new releases this week would have an impact on retail store sales. This data is based on US sales of new releases (which all primarily launched September 6th, 2011) and as expected the top game titles sold last week are not a surprise.  What is a surprise are the games that made the worst sales list. See below:

Top Video Games Sellers this week:

  1. Dead Island
  2. Resistance 3
  3. Starfox 64 3d (3DS )
  4. Madden NFL 12
  5. Disgaea 4 A Promise Unforgotten

Worst Video Game Sellers this week:

  1. Warhammer 40k Space Marine
  2. Driver San Francisco
  3. Rise of Nightmares
Oddly both Space Marine and Driver San Francisco had hardly any sales at all. Of course this may change over the next few weeks when the Dead Island and Resistance 3 hype calms down, but by then we have reserve specials for RAGE,  Batman Arkham City (reserve special content  may disappear any day so get yours reserved now), as well as Gears of War 3 release 1 week from now on September 20th, so it’s safe to say the 3 poor selling titles are feeling the aftermath and might not make the return on investment that was expected.
Just like film releases, it all depends on what else is hitting shelves the same week a product is launched.   GameGuideDog gives highest praise for all of these titles, they are great products, and just because they are sleepers does not mean they aren’t worthy of purchase.
