Every week, sister iPhone site FingerGaming
rounds up the top-grossing iPhone and iPod Touch applications, as current that day in the iTunes App Store, and this chart is now available on Gamasutra.
This week's U.S. iPhone revenue charts see EA's mobile version of Rock Band
leading over Command & Conquer: Red Alert
and a recently released port of id Software's classic FPS Doom
This relatively recently-added chart allows end users to see who is making the most money on the App Store that day. It differs significantly from the Top 10 Games chart, which is ranked by sales, and therefore is dominated by lower-priced titles that sell more copies.
Data comes courtesy of Apple's public sales information. All titles in the App Store's "Games" category are considered in chart rankings.
This week's top-grossing U.S. App Store titles are:
- Rock Band ($9.99)
- Command & Conquer: Red Alert ($9.99)
- Doom Classic ($6.99)
- Bejeweled 2 ($2.99)
- Skee-Ball ($0.99)
- Tetris ($4.99)
- NBA Live ($9.99)
- Madden NFL 10 ($9.99)
- Scrabble ($4.99)
- The Sims 3 ($6.99)
Examining this week's charts, EA's multiplayer music simulation title Rock Band
takes the top chart spot for the third week in a row, but faces tough competition from Command & Conquer: Red Alert
, which saw a successful debut earlier this week.
id Software's iPhone port of the classic first-person shooter Doom
places third in its first week of release. Bejeweled 2
drops from second place to fourth in today's rankings, while Skee-Ball
moves up to fifth place.
also sees a slight drop in popularity this week, while EA's sports sims Madden NFL 10
and NBA Live
maintain consistent daily sales. Scrabble
recovers to take ninth this week, as The Sims 3
closes out the chart at tenth place.
