XBLA’s 2010: 16% growth YOY, great numbers for Limbo, Case 0

The service is believed to have grown 16 percent year-over-year, with total revenues reaching $122 million.

The biggest seller of the year is said to be Capcom’s Dead Rising 2: Case 0 prologue, which sold through 689,000 copies since its launch in September. The 400 Microsoft Point ($5) price point served its purpose well, then.
