Halo Reach Was the 3rd Best Selling Game of 2010
Halo Reach came in 3rd place on the game sales list. Before you hoot and holler that it should have been #1, keep in mind that Reach was a platform exclusive and did not release until late September. The two games that finished ahead of it (Black Ops and Madden) were both multiplatform games that were able to earn sales from multiple systems, and Madden had a month and a half headstart on Reach to boot. Halo Reach was easily the highest selling exclusive platform game.
The XBox 360 also had its best year to date, selling the most consoles for the last 6 months consecutively. Here is the complete list of the top 10 selling games of 2010.
