AfterBurner Climax first week sales and playtime top the competition


Major Nelson reports that for the week of April 19th AfterBurner Climax has not only outsold the competition, but was the most played Xbox Live Arcade title played online for the week. This includes the Xbox 360’s own Game Room, a free downloadable program that serves as a hub for players to stay and play that includes purchasable emulated games from the arcade and early videogame consoles like the Atari 2600. During the week of April 19th there were a total of 30 games in Game Room.

With these very impressive results coupled with the very similar response from Virtual-On: Oratorio Tangram (which was also converted by the same staff in AM2 that did AfterBurner Climax for the downloadable services) it is extremely likely more arcade conversions for the Xbox Live Arcade are on the way.
