Toy Soldiers, Trials HD biggest 2010 XBLA sellers, YOY revenues up

According to estimates from Forecasting and Analyzing Digital Entertainment (FADE), Xbox Live Arcade’s first half of 2010 enjoyed total revenues of $46.1 million. That’s year-over-year growth of 13 percent.

The biggest sellers were Signal Studios’ Block Party lead-in Toy Soldiers which generated $4.6 million, followed closely by RedLynx’s Trials HD with $4.4 million, and not-so-closely yet most impressively by The Behemoth’s two-year-old behemoth Castle Crashers (see below for the top 10).

Total revenues for the year are expected to land in the $130-$140 million range, with titles from the on-going Summer of Arcade promotionLimbo and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, perhaps most notably — in all likelihood adding to the figure handsomely.

To compare, the estimated 2009 revenues stand at $103 million, a 34% increase over 2008.
