Super Meat Boy Sells Better On Steam, Wasn’t Marketed Well On XBLM

Written by on    

According to an interview at Eurogamer with Team Meat, the PC version of Super Meat Boy sold around 10% better on Steam despite coming out later with less billing. And speaking of advertising, Team Meat has a bone to pick (pun intended) with the guys in charge of Xbox Live programming, as they feel they were stilted when it came to promotion:

“It finally went up half way through our launch day. It was the number four spot; it wasn’t number one. The ‘spooktacular sale’, which was a whole bunch of other games that already came out – that was the number one slot. “An ad for a Mazda 3 was the number two slot – because you all go on Xbox to figure out what car you want, right? “We were number four and we stayed number four the entire week,”

said co-founder Tommy Refenes.
