THE BUZZ: Battlefield 3 was the winner—there’s absolutely no surprise there. Some of the other results, however, are totally unexpected!

Here’s the top ten selling video games for October 2011 in North America:

  1. Battlefield 3 [360, PS3, PC] (almost 2 million copies sold)
  2. Batman: Arkham City [360, PS3] (1.5 million copies sold)
  3. NBA 2K12 [360, PS3, PSP, Wii, PS2, PC]
  4. Rage [360, PS3, PC]
  5. Just Dance 3 [Wii, 360]
  6. Dark Souls [PS3, 360]
  7. Madden NFL 12 [360, PS3, Wii, PS2, PSP]
  8. Forza Motorsport 4 [360]
  9. Gears of War 3 [360]
  10. FIFA Soccer 12 [360, PS3, Wii, PSP, PS2, 3DS]

 

EGM’s TAKE: Dark Souls not only shows up on the list, but it’s #6 and beat out Forza 4 in its launch? I am really, really shocked to see that—but extremely happy, because Dark Souls really deserves any success it gets.
