Kinect Adventures Is Xbox 360′s Best Selling Game? - Kinect bundles helped

Just Push Start - Tue, 04/22/2014 - 14:30
The best selling game for the Xbox 360 is none other than Kinect Adventures. Fansided.com has compiled a list of the top 15 best selling games for the Xbox 360 platform. It’s very surprising to see that Kinect Adventures in on top of the list. It even beat out Halo 3. Although, the game was bundled with the Xbox 360 Kinect hardware to that would have helped sales a lot. This list only shows Xbox 360 versions of games sold. Games like Minecraft and Call of Duty would have sold more copies, but those sales would have been shared with other platforms. Their list is somewhat inaccurate however as some games are not there. Modern Warfare 3 is not listed in the top 15 best sellers list nor is Grand Theft Auto V. Although the website stated Kinect Adventures sold 24 million copies in total which is higher than what those games sold on Xbox 360 only.
