Best Of GamerBytes: GDC Round-Up, XNA Analysis

Sister site GamerBytes rounds up the major announcements in WiiWare, PSN, and XBLA this week, including titles from Bonsai Barber to Dishwasher: Dead Samurai and initial XNACG game sales.
[Every week, sister site GamerBytes' editor Ryan Langley passes along the top console digital download news tidbits from the past 7 days, including brand new game announcements and scoops through the world of Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and WiiWare.] This week has been quite a large one for us at GamerBytes - there has been a lot of discussion circling about the XNA Community Games since sales figures are now available to developers. We exclusively revealed over 25 games' sales and how well they have been doing. It's a little all over the place, but it's an excellent resource for upcoming developers. This week's released include the indie developed Dishwasher: Dead Samurai on XBLA, the points and multiplier based Burn Zombie Burn and turn based Worms on the PlayStation Network, with Comet Crash coming out later this week, and Bonsai Barber for WiiWare - an interesting game where you give each tree a trim using the Wii Remote.
