Microsoft's Xbox Live Marketplace is enjoying continued sales increases taking in $11.2m last month, which is up 91 percent from last year's October.

Research firm FADE also spills the beans on October's top ten sellers with Capcom’s Dead Rising: Case Zero the winner. July was its best ever month.

Yes in the heat of July this year Xbox Live cashed in $17.5m in sales. Thanks to Microsoft keeping a most keen eye on what indie and major studios are releasing on their service, they've managed to massage sales numbers higher than they've ever been.

Here's October's top 10:
