Being sales data April 2, 2009

Posted by Jesse in : Being,Game Development , 2 comments

It’s been awhile since I’ve written anything. I’ve gotten really into playing Street Fighter 4, and haven’t felt the urge to write video games lately. I do have something interesting to share, though.

Microsoft gave us access to the sales data for Community Games recently. As of March 30th, 2009, the trial version of Being has been downloaded 9084 times. Out of those, 485 people decided it was worth their money and purchased it. From the data, I had a rush early on, but now I get a sale every day or two.

Here’s a breakdown by country:

Canada: 33 (6.8%)
France: 4 (0.8%)
Italy: 4 (0.8%)
Spain: 5 (1.0%)
United Kingdom: 66 (13.6%)
United States: 373 (76.9%)
Total: 485

For my first game, I have to say I’m totally stoked by these numbers. This isn’t the sort of sales I would need to start a business, but that wasn’t the goal here.

If you haven’t yet given the game a go, you can download the demo to your Xbox 360 right here. If you try it, please tell me what you think.

I’ve got an idea for a new game. It’s time to get back to work!
