Shrek Not Among Top 6 Selling Xbox Titles
12-11-2001

(by digitalmediafx.com) While official sales numbers haven't been released for Shrek on Xbox, Microsoft has put out a list of the top six selling games for Xbox as follows:

Halo
Project Gotham Racing
NFL Fever 2002
Dead or Alive 3
Madden NFL 2002
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2X

Microsoft also announced that Xbox has passed the 1 million mark in sales.

"We're very pleased with the consumer response to Xbox, having surpassed the 1 million mark at breakneck speed," said Robbie Bach, chief Xbox officer at Microsoft. "This substantiates our belief that gamers would make Xbox one of the hottest gifts for the holidays."

Playstation 2 and GameCube are also seeing very strong sales, a surprise considering the perceived economic conditions in the United States and the high price tags the consoles come at ($299 for Xbox and Playstation 2; $199 for GameCube). 

Shrek, for Xbox, was produced by TDK Mediactive and is located in Calabassas, CA. The game contains four worlds, 12 levels, and 36 missions. It has a high poly count and utilizes real-time rendered cut scenes at the beginning of each mission. The cost of the game is $49.95.

Even though Shrek isn't among the top 6 selling Xbox games, sales are still very strong according to TDK Mediactive. When combined with record sales of Shrek for Nintendo Game Boy Color, both games represent "a significant portion of our revenue," according to Martin Paravato, chief financial officer of TDK Mediactive.
