It’s about that time of the year when everyone wants to tell us about the highlights of 2008 – the highs, the lows, the achievements and the down falls.
Microsoft is no exception to that rule! They’ve recently released a number of facts about its XBox Live Arcade service which are pretty interesting…..
Let me share….
- Over 1.25 billion Gamerscore points were logged in 2008, spread out over 100 million different Achievements in XBLA games this year.
- There have been over 60 XBLA games this year that scored over 75 on Metacritic, with Braid taking pride of place at the top of the list, followed by other great titles including Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and Portal: Still Alive
- A total of 110 million trial games have been downloaded on XBLA.
A pretty impressive acheivement, I think you’ll agree.
