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 Activision's increasingly evergreen Call of Duty: World at War Zombies
and Gameloft's distinctly Halo
leading over EA's Need for Speed: Shift
and The Sims 3
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. Call of Duty: World at War Zombies
2. N.O.V.A. - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance
3. Need for Speed: Shift
4. The Sims 3
6. Rock Band
7. Bejeweled 2
8. Madden NFL 10
10. James Cameron's Avatar
Activision's Call of Duty: World at War Zombies
retakes the top chart spot this week, pushing Gameloft's Halo
-like FPS N.O.V.A.
to second place.
EA's Need for Speed: Shift
climbs to third place after a recent sales-boosting price drop. The publisher continues to see chart success with The Sims 3, Tetris, Rock Band
, and Madden NFL 10
, all of which place high in today's rankings.
Freeverse's 99-cent arcade bowling sim Skee-Ball
returns to the top-grossing charts at ninth place this week, as Gameloft's iPhone adaptation of James Cameron's Avatar
follows close behind at tenth.
