SC Breaks First Week XBLA Record

Shadow Complex has done pretty well not only in reviews (we gave it 90%)but also in first week of sales. When I say ‘pretty well’ I mean record breaking, Shadow Complex became the fastest selling XBLA game by reaching over 200,000 downloads in its first week alone.

“Congratulations to Chair Entertainment and Epic Games for creating an outstanding game,” said Scott Austin, director of digitally distributed games at Microsoft. “As the capstone title of the second annual Summer of Arcade program, Shadow Complex has raised the bar for downloadable games. We’re proud to offer such high-quality content on Xbox LIVE Arcade.”

I’m not really shocked by this news, the game is fantastic and it’s well worth everyone checking out the demo. We loved it here at Console Monster so it might be worth forking out the 1,200 Microsoft points for it.
