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 Gameloft's distinctly Halo
overtaking the best-selling Where's Waldo?
, as the Battleship
games finish ahead of EA's Need for Speed: Shift
This chart allows end users to see who is making the most actual money on the App Store that day, differing significantly from the sales-ranked Top 10 Games chart, which 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. N.O.V.A. - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance
2. Call of Duty: World at War Zombies
4. James Cameron's Avatar
5. Need for Speed: Shift
6. Where's Waldo? The Fantastic Journey
7. Bejeweled 2
9. Cartoon Wars: Gunner
10. The Sims 3
Ludia's Where's Waldo?
drops to sixth place after a chart-topping performance last week, as Gameloft's sci-fi FPS N.O.V.A.
takes first place in its debut week.
Activision's Call of Duty: World at War Zombies
holds steady at second place, while EA's iPhone adaptation of the classic board game Battleship
premieres at third.
EA has another hit this week with the street racing sim Need for Speed: Shift
, which finishes behind James Cameron's Avatar
at fifth place. PopCap's Bejeweled 2
and EA's Tetris
follow at seventh and eighth, as Blue Gen's 99-cent Cartoon Wars: Gunner
enters the chart at ninth place.
