All Hail the PC Gaming Master Race: Cthulhu Saves the World Doing Way Better on Steam Than Xbox

on July 26, 2011 10:00 AM

As if you needed more proof that gaming on the PC is obviously superior to that of consoles, Ben Kuchera reports on Ars Technica that highly praised indie games Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII have been selling tremendously since they first hit Steam a couple weeks ago.

According to Zeboyd Games’ Robert Boyd, “In less than a week, our Steam revenue has actually exceeded over a year and a half of XBLIG revenue for us,” and additionally mentioned that he was “stunned” at how well it was doing on the PC.

While it’s been well-established that the Xbox Live Indie Games Channel has been, for lack of a better phrase, unorganized poo-poo, it’s still surprising that two of the highest-rated indie games of last year didn’t succeed financially. This could just be a case of Zeboyd Games and Steam actually providing some semblance of marketing to promote their games, but regardless, it’s great to see two deserving products get what they deserve. You can buy Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII here for a ridiculously paltry $2.99.
