Xbox Live Arcade 2012 Game Sales Seen Through Leaderboards!

Xbox Live ArcadeFirst party publishers and the like have always been secretive about their game sales. Unless they’re some finite number filled with zeros about the amount shipped, it’s not something for the public.

Ryan Langley, designer at HalfBrick and Gamasutra editor, took the liberty to take a peek at the leaderboards of every Xbox Live Arcade game to release last year and boy, it really put things in perspective. It’s a rough, yet a surprisingly precise estimate at the thousands of players. Looky look at Langley’s Xbox Live Arcade By The Numbers Tumblr Post!
