Edge is starting a series of weekly graphs highlighting gaming “market interest areas or trends”. This week, it’s Xbox 360.

From data complied with Entertainment Design and Research, this week’s pictorial representation shows 360 game that have received review scores of 85 or higher, compared to those that got 65 or lower.

As you can see, from 2005 through 2008, 13 percent (48 games) have received an average score of 85 plus, and 38 percent received a 65 or lower.

The chart disclaimer? Multiple SKUs and special editions were removed so as not to be counted twice. Guitar Hero: World Tour and its 3 SKUs were used as an example.

Next week: PS3!

Can’t wait.
