When it comes to PC game titles and DVD sales, football and wrestling titles outperform all other sports, according to recent data from Nielsen.
The Giants/Patriots match-up in "Super Bowl XLII" grabbed two spots in Nielsen's ranking of the top 10 sports DVDs so far this year, while pro wrestling titles pinned down the rest of the list.
On the gaming side, the Madden franchise dominated the competition, with three titles in Nielsen's top 10 ranking.
