I noticed that too.
Small Arms and Lumines were last on the list too, I wonder if that's why MS used those games for their tournament (maybe to boost sales a bit).

I was sort of disappointed by the look of it. MBU and Geo Wars are the only two real original games that are high up on the list. Everybody was excited about the 4 original games in a row, but it seems like the Retro games are still selling a lot more.

GWs isn't even that original. I kind of get sick of the game after a few minuets of playing.

The thing about Small Arms is that it had very little time to get on the list. I think it's selling *extremely* well, judging from leaderboards. It's above Clyde which has had many months to sell.

In fact, I think Contra is the only other really new game on the list.

Yeah...I think that the amount of time many of those games have been out has certainly assisted their sales compared to the recent originals.

Also, some of those games are probably affected greatly by things like "pack-ins" for Live packages. (I'm looking at you Bankshot...and even Uno to some degree.)
