XBLA Summer of Arcade Sales Underwhelm

We all know that this year’s Summer of Arcade promotion didn’t match up to the quality of previous years, with a solid yet unspectacular line-up of titles. Now we have an idea of just how poorly they sold.

Traditionally the high point of XBLA sales, this year’s SoA failed to generate much consumer interest. According to the amount of players registered on each of the game's leaderboards, only Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD made an impact,  registering 98,000 players in the first week.

Meanwhile, the other games fared far less well. Indeed, Kinect title Wreckateer didn’t even register 10,000 players in its first week, indicating the lowest sales of an SoA game since 2009.

Here’s the full breakdown:

  • 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

By comparison Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which launched the week after Summer of Arcade came to a close, had 145,709 players on its leaderboards after the first week. In the same period, Spelunky disappointed with just 17,818 players.
