Some Xbox Live Indie Games Making Bank!
Major Nelson released the list for the 2009 Best Selling Xbox Live Indie Games and GamerBytes with the help of the XNA Forums have created a sales data chart to reflect the games. Not surprisingly, James Silva’s I Maed a Gam3 W1th Zombies 1n it!!!1 topped the charts with 160,000 downloads. After Microsoft took their cut of 30% percent, that left the creator with around $112,000 dollars. Not bad for a dollar game.
On the other hand, I was very surprised Gerbil Physics was not in the top 20, maybe because I just played that game and it was hilariously fun. Anyways, it’s hard to go wrong with any games in the top 20 so go check them out, download the trial and if you like it make sure you buy it!
