Recent release Full House Poker leads the week's best-selling Xbox Live Arcade titles, according to an information-filled post from Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb. The March 16 release, which sells for 800 Microsoft points ($10) features a live, 30-minute poker game show called Texas Heat, as well as compatibility with a companion Windows Phone 7 app. Full House Poker beat out second-place seller Torchlight and third-place seller Battle: Los Angeles, both of which launched the previous week. March's other XBLA release, Beyond Good & Evil HD, finished in fifth place for the week, behind last October's Pinball FX2. The only other titles from this year to rank in this week's top 20 XBLA sellers were Konami's retro revamp Hard Corps: Uprising (No. 10) and Microsoft's puzzle game ilomilo (No. 20). The remainder of the list consists of legacy titles from previous years, including high rankings for perennial sellers like Castle Crashers (No. 6) and Trials HD (No. 7). THQ's alternate history first-person shooter Homefront -- which has already sold an estimated 1 million copies across the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC -- premiered at No. 6 for the week's most-played Xbox Live titles, as measured by unique online users. The ranking puts it behind enduringly popular titles like Black Ops, Modern Warfare 2 and Halo: Reach but ahead of recent high-profile release Dragon Age II. Recent releases appearing on the Xbox Live Indie Game sales rankings this week include target shooting game Marksman: Long Range (No. 2), dark auto-scroller Office Affairs (No. 4), RPG Avatar Adventures Online (No. 5) and run-and-gun title Bird Assassin (No. 9).
