Today I received my copy of The Leveller, I-Level's monthly newsletter. Apart from the comment about Martin Lewis and MSE as an affiliate (featuring Matt Bailey's apparent dating website photo) there was a good list some affiliate might want to use.
The top 5 worldwide selling Games of 2008
1. Mario Kart Wii -1.94m copies sold
2. Wii Fit
3. Grand Theft Auto 4
4. Super Smash Bros Brawl
5. Call of Duty: World at War
source - Chart Track, NPD, Media Crate, Feb 09
Why of interest to affiliates:
It is worth noting that these can all be rented from LOVEFiLM
3 of these are Wii games, matching the trend we see for Wii rental being more popular
Anyone with a more causal gaming audience could benefit from promoting these titles
P.S - in case you don't believe me about Matt's photo I have place below - does he not look like he's about to start talking about his hobbies?
