Mattel’s UNO is the #1 Xbox Live Marketplace game

GamerScore Blog just posted a ton of statistics about XBox Live and also posted a list of the "Top 10 experiences that you can only get using Xbox 360".

One of the big bulletins is that there are 4 MILLION users of Xbox Live today.  That’s a lot of people to play against.  They also posted that over 12 MILLION downloads have occured on the network from the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Mattel… I hope someone’s reading!
One big point they also make that I hope isn’t lost on anyone is the fact that our #1 seller on Xbox Live is UNO.  That’s right – Mattel’s card game UNO.   Y’all have a licensing success with this game.  To be honest, I could see this blowing up huge with other Mattel games and children’s toys.  How about a Hot Wheels racer?  How about a Sims add-in for Barbie?  After all, apparently Hasbro hasn’t gotten on the ball with home games based on their properties… and you KNOW that they’ve got a lot of properties that would translate well to Xbox online gaming.  Grab the gold ring while it’s still available!
