Angry Birds is top-selling PSN game of the year so far

The PS3 is a powerful gaming rig, featuring tons of great downloadable exclusives, like PixelJunk Shooter 2. So no wonder the top-selling game on the PlayStation Network this year is... Angry Birds? Seriously?

Casual games and retro re-releases have been dominating the sales charts, showing that PS3 gamers aren't as hardcore as you might think. Or, maybe they just don't have modern cell phones to play these games on.

Top 10 PlayStation Store games in 2011 (so far):

  • Angry Birds
  • Tetris
  • Final Fantasy VII (PSone)
  • Pac-Man Championship Edition DX
  • Plants vs Zombies
  • Castle Crashers
  • Resident Evil 2 (PSone)
  • Final Fantasy XI (PSone)
  • Modern Combat: Dominion
  • Battlefield 1943

It's shocking to see so many mobile games dominate the list. Also, could mainstream gamers have purchased Modern Combat because it sounds so much like Modern Warfare? If so, Gameloft's devious copycat-cloning seems to have worked.
