Taking the number one spot, Madden NFL 2010, is not much a surprise to very many people. There may be an upcoming drop in game sales which may begin to worry people. Anita Frazier spoke about this issue regarding the fact that Guitar Hero 5 and The Beatles: Rock Band are both new games.

“With the introduction of Beatles: Rock Band and Guitar Hero 5 in September, a lot of folks have inquired about the performance of these titles and the music/dance genre,” said Frazier. “While sales of this genre are down 46% year-to-date, unit sales are down much less because lower prices are playing into the dollar sales decline. It’s still the third best-selling genre for the year after General Action and Multiple/Other Sports (where Wii Fit resides).”
