Top-Grossing iPhone Apps: Monopoly Takes On Call of Duty

Apple's latest U.S. iPhone game charts by revenue see Electronic Arts' Monopoly challenging Activision's Call of Duty: World at War Zombies for the top spot, as Tetris leads over Bejeweled 2 further down the chart.
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 see Electronic Arts' Monopoly challenging Activision's Call of Duty: World at War Zombies for the top spot, as Tetris leads over Bejeweled 2 further down the chart. 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 ($9.99) 2. Monopoly ($4.99) 3. Tetris ($4.99) 4. Bejeweled 2 ($2.99) 5. Scrabble ($4.99) 6. The Sims 3 ($6.99) 7. Implode! ($1.99) 8. Madden NFL 10 ($6.99) 9. Need for Speed Undercover ($4.99) 10. Rock Band ($6.99) Boosted by Black Friday discounts, Electronic Arts' Monopoly and Tetris move up past PopCap's Bejeweled 2 to take second and third place in today's top-grossing app charts. Activision's Call of Duty: World at War Zombies finishes at first place for the second week in a row, and is likely to remain a chart favorite for weeks to come. Scrabble moves up from seventh place to finish fifth this week. The Sims 3 sees a slight drop in popularity, meanwhile, as IUGO's physics puzzler Implode! makes its chart debut at seventh place. EA closes out this week's chart results with a trio of offerings. Madden NFL 10 and Need for Speed Undercover see increased sales in the wake of Black Friday, while Rock Band hangs on at tenth place.
