A Six Month Journey Ends
It had to happen eventually. The latest XBOX Live activity charts from the Major Nelson blog show that Sonic Adventure 2, which to this point has enjoyed bouncing around on the top 20 XBOX Live arcade sales chart the past six month, departed the top of the charts as of last week.
No Sega game made the top 20 for the week of April 8th. In the previous week, SA2 charted 10th in the top 20. The sharp and sudden fallout ends a six month era where SA2 had maintained a strong presence on the chart, beginning with its initial release on XBOX Live last October.
For reference, the top XBLA seller last week was Minecraft.
