XBLA revenues rocket in 2011

Market research firm Fade has claimed that revenue for Xbox LIVE Arcade rose percent in the first six months of the year.

According to Fade, $66.2 million was raised through sales  in the first six months of 2011, with seven new releases grossing a million US dollars.

The biggest title of the year was Microsoft’s very own Full House Poker, selling over a quarter of a million units (268k) and earning $2.7 million in revenue. Torchlight, (sitting in second place in the table below) was the highest grossing game earning $3.6 million.

Fade is claiming that a combination of an increase in hardware sales and the rise in cost of the games on the service is responsible for these spectacular results.

Top ten selling games:

01. Full House Poker (Microsoft Game Studios) 02. Torchlight (Runic Games) 03. Magic: The Gathering 2012 (Stainless Steel Games) 04. Trials HD (RedLynx) 05. Beyond Good & Evil HD (Ubisoft) 06. Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale (Atari) 07. Ilomilo (SouthEnd Interactive) 08. Dead Rising 2: Case West (Capcom) 09. Limbo (Playdead) 10. Family Game Night (Hasbro)

Thanks, Edge.
