Microsoft reaches the largest month ever thanks to big 'Summer of Arcade' titles. But just how much did XBLA sales improve?
Microsoft proved this month that the Summer of Arcade lineup wasn't just a promotion, but a force to be reckoned with. The digital gaming platform brought in the highest revenue ever for a single month, beating last month's amazing cume of $14.7 million USD with $16.7 million USD. This cume represents a remarkable 49% increase from last year's 'Summer of Arcade' promotion, which was also a record breaker for Microsoft, at $11.2 million USD. Last year's major titles included favors such as 'Geometry Wars 2', 'Braid' and the blockbuster 'Castle Crashers'.
