This conclusion was drawn from surveys and projections, not raw sales data. August 2010 bested last year's by 6 percent. 9 titles over $500k?
9 titles on XBLA are believed to have grossed over half a million dollars, with Monday Night Combat leading the pack with $2.8 million and 187,000 units sold. August played host to Castlevania ($2m - 131k units) and July bestseller Limbo ($1.9m - 128k units).
Limbo has now cleared around 334k units estimates FADE, although it pales in comparison to Trials HD and its estimated 1,005,000 lifetime sales over XBLA - making it 1 of only 4 titles over Microsoft's platform service to clear the 1m unit milestone.
