There isn’t any real surprises in either list, although in case you were wondering about Castle Crashers being at the top of the XBLA game list, when the online functionality wasn’t usable for most of the year it’s because XBLA titles are ranked by sales and not by online connectivity.

Also on a personal note I do kinda wish N+ ranked a bit higher in the sales.

  1. COD:WAW did pretty well for a November multiplat release. Can’t say the top 5 are much of a surprise at all.
