Activision is known for driving their franchises into the ground (Guitar Hero, Call of Duty, etc.), but so far, Skylanders is holding up quite well… and for good reason. Read on for sales figures and an infographic.
Activision today announced that the Skylanders franchise has topped $500 million in retail sales (games, bundles and figures included). The figures alone have outsold WWE, Beyblade and Star Wars toys, which is an impressive feat.
Along with slashing the price of their own Wii bundles to $129.99 in advance of the Wii U launch, Nintendo today has announced a pair of new Wii bundles for the Holidays.
Skylanders Giants is surely going to be a giant Holiday seller, just as the first game was. For gamescom, Activision fired over a set of new screens and a few photos of the figures.
