The highest grossing XBLA game of 2010 is...


So far, it's been a pretty good year for Xbox LIVE Arcade. So what are the kids buying these days, and more importantly, what's been making the most money? According to independent firm Forecasthing & Analyzing Digital Entertainment, it's…

Toy Soldiers. Yup, the game that kicked off Microsoft's Block Party earlier this year has pulled in an estimated $4.6 million in sales, at 1200 MS Points a piece. It's followed by Trials HD ($4.4 million), Castle Crashers ($2.9 million), Battlefield 1943 ($2.5 million), and Perfect Dark ($2.4 million), all of which made FADE's top five. It's interesting to note that many of the game's in FADE's top 10 didn't even come out this year -- Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, for instance, continues to rake in the cash.

FADE's top 10 can be found after the jump. If your favorite game isn't on the list, perhaps you should create multiple Xbox LIVE accounts and start spending some cash.
