Xbox Live Indie Hit Outselling Pretty Much Everything Else
Whoa. We told you this was going to be huge.
Our full review of emergent (not to mention controversial) Xbox Live indie phenomenon FortressCraft will be going live this lunchtime... but by the looks of things, gamers are already flocking to the "Minecraft On Consoles" experience in droves. It's now skyrocketed up the best-selling lists to take second place... overall. That's right, folks: it's not just the best selling Indie Game, but the 2nd biggest seller on the whole of Xbox Live! It's outselling every XBLA title, game on demand and piece of DLC except FIFA 11.
Seeing an Xbox Live Indie title kicking ass on the bestselling lists is a fantastic precedent that will hopefully raise awareness of the whole scene.
To find out why... and why you should jump on the bandwagon yourself... I'd suggest hitting our hard-hitting interviews with ProjectorGames.
