Xbox Live Arcade Sales In Short, July 2013

Here we go, the final list for July 2013 XBLA Sales Analysis!

Here we go, the final list for July 2013 XBLA Sales Analysis!

New Releases included:


Scourge: Outbreak
Capsized
Pacific Rim: The Video Game
R.I.P.D. Rest in Peace Department the Game

Mars: War Logs
Zeno Clash II




Notes for the month:

- Horrible review scores for a bunch of games -- Scourge Outbreak, RIPD and Pacific Rim The Video game all got awful reviews and looks like they all sold poorly too. After the awesomeness of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and COJ: Gunslinger, we've been saddled with this stuff.
- Best reviewed game of the month was Capsized, but we couldn't tell how well the game sold.
- I believe there were a bunch of special bundles also released this month featuring 4 or 5 games each at a discounted price, plus we had the "ultimate game sale" making numerous retail games bargain priced on digital. This was not XBLA's month.
- State of Decay added another 140,000 players this month.
- The guy I speak to about Minecraft stats is on Holidays right now, so I don't have this month's Minecraft data.
Magic 2014 slowing down quicker than previous versions, but it IS the 4th version on here, and still does bloody well.
Defense Grid: The Awakening was one of the "Games For Gold" this month -- for two weeks it was free for any gold member to download. For those weeks, it added 616,038 players and 153,455. The weeks following probably include a lot of players who didn't play the game when they first grabbed it. I also followed the DLC, and while it got a bit of a boost, it wasn't really that much.

Stay tunes for next month, which should include Cloudberry Kingdom, Brothers: ATOTS, Charlie Murder and Flashback from the Summer of Arcade!
