Top-selling LucasArts titles of 2008

The staff at game industry magazine Edge recently published what they determined to be the top 60 selling games of 2008. Acknowledging that accurate figures are hard to amass in the video game industry, Edge says the list is their best guess based on available information from retail sales in Europe and North America only and does not include numbers of games sold via digital distribution.

LucasArts released two games in 2008 that made the list. LEGO Indiana Jones placed 12th with an estimated 4 million units sold on all platforms the game released on.

Sales of the much anticipated Star Wars: The Force Unleashed totalled approximately 5 million copies on all platforms, making the number 9 spot on Edge's list.

Those who have read or end up actually reading the article may notice that the Edge staff erroneously credits LucasArts as the publisher of LEGO Batman, #17 on the list. The game was actually published by Warner Bros. I think this just goes to show that LucasArts has apparently become associated with all things LEGO in the video game business.

So what do you think people? IMHO LucasArts had a rather disappointing 2008. With sales like these, though who knows how accurate these figures really are, perhaps the year wasn't so bad after all.
