Whilst compiling his own list of Xbox Live Arcade sales figures, Neogaf forum goon C4Lukins uncovered a few interesting points about a handful of Arcade games. Full list of sales figures and meaningless trivia after the jump.
Would you believe that more than twenty thousand UNO gamers suck to the point of having never won a single-player game? And where simple mathematics would dictate that with four default lives and receiving 50 points upon death, (4 x 50 = 200) people are actually able to get less than 200 points in Joust! The other little notes:
The worst finishing time on the first level of Marble Blast Ultra, is over an hour.
Over 40 people purchased Geometry wars between 1am and 2am Central time while I was compiling this list.
Cloning Clyde sold 8500 copies on its first day, and 5410 on its second day.
By checking out the lowest scores in the Leaderboards - since Microsoft never releases sales figures - C4Lukins managed to compile a list of how many of each arcade game’s been sold. Here’s what he’s got as of Friday, July 21:
Cloning Clyde- 14,063
Crystal Quest- 29,557
Feeding Frenzy- 50,229
Geometry Wars- 188,428
Marble Blast Ultra- 107,886
Mutant Storm Reloaded- 38,726
Robotron 2084- 22,887
Smash TV- 78,790
Wik Fable of Souls- 15,591
Those are, at any rate, figures he’s absolutely sure of. Interesting stuff, and it’s good to see Cloning Clyde do good. I kind of liked it.
