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 Monopoly
take the lead over Square Enix's Final Fantasy
, while Ragdoll Blaster 2
ranks high in its debut week.
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:
2. Final Fantasy
3. Ragdoll Blaster 2
4. Call of Duty: World at War Zombies
5. All-in-1 Gamebox
6. Bejeweled 2
7. Plants vs. Zombies
8. Rock Band
10. Rayman 2: The Great Escape
finishes as this week's highest-grossing game in the App Store, boosted by a recent television advertisement highlighting popular iPhone titles. Square Enix's former chart leader Final Fantasy
drops to second place, while Backflip Studios' physics puzzler Ragdoll Blaster 2
takes third in its debut week.
Activision's Call of Duty: World at War Zombies
holds steady at fourth place, though Gameloft's competing title Brothers in Arms 2
has fallen out of the top ten after a strong performance last week. PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies
also sees a drop in popularity after placing third last week, and finishes behind Triniti's app compilation All-in-1 Gamebox
and Bejeweled 2
in today's chart results.
EA's Rock Band
moves up to eighth place this week, as Gameloft's recently released iPhone version of the classic 3D platformer Rayman 2
closes out today's chart.
