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 Rock Band
surpass former sales leader Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
, as Spore Creatures
and X Games Snowcross
make impressive debuts.
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:
1. Rock Band
2. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
3. Call of Duty: World at War Zombies
4. Bejeweled 2
5. Doodle Jump
6. The Sims 3
7. Spore Creatures
8. X Games Snowcross
10. Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? 2010
EA's iPhone edition of Rock Band
surpasses Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
to become today's biggest-grossing game title in the iTunes App Store.
Activision's Call of Duty: World at War Zombies
and PopCap's Bejeweled 2
hold steady at third and fourth place, while Lima Sky's Doodle Jump
moves up past The Sims 3
to take fifth.
EA's Spore Creatures
and ESPN's X Games Snowcross
make their chart debuts this week, landing at seventh and eighth place. Tetris
falls to ninth, as Capcom's Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?
joins the top ten after a recent price drop.
