XBLA Summer of Arcade sales disappoint

Xbox Live Arcade’s Summer of Arcade promotion apparently didn’t carry the same appeal this year as it has in the past.

Eurogamer’s examination of a Gamasutra report reveals generally low first week player figures for the promotion’s titles.

  • Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD – 98,000 players
  • Deadlight – 53,000 players
  • Wreckateer – 6629 players
  • Hybrid – 12,168
  • Dust: An Elysian Tail – 32,000

Tony Hawk and Deadlight Individually fared decent, but Wreckateer is in the running for worst selling Summer of Arcade title of all time.

Eurogamer provides Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s over 145,000 first week players as a means of comparison to quantify the lackluster performance of the promotion as a whole. Also, pointing out that a big name title such as CS:GO launching during the same period could have affected the promotion’s sales.
