Chair breaks Xbox Live sales records

Xbox Live Arcade game Shadow Complex has become a record breaker on the digital download service in just a matter of days.

The game, developed by Epic Games subsidiary Chair Entertainment, was purchased by over 200,000 people in the first week of its release.

“Congratulations to Chair Entertainment and Epic Games for creating an outstanding game,” said Scott Austin, director of digitally distributed games at Microsoft.

“As the capstone title of the second annual Summer of Arcade program, Shadow Complex has raised the bar for downloadable games.”

Dr. Michael Capps, president of Epic Games, added: "We’re really flattered by all the great things fans and critics have said about Shadow Complex. Chair’s goal was to make a gorgeous game with tons of action, addictive challenges, and a great sense of exploration – and they knocked it out of the park. We’re so proud to have Shadow Complex join the Epic portfolio."
