It looks like Hello Games’ motorcycle stunt game was a huge success for the developers.
During his keynote speech at the Develop Conference 2010, Sean Murray – Managing Director of Hello Games – stated that the highly praised PSN exclusive, Joe Danger, had managed to break even on launch date. It was also revealed that after a week of it’s release Joe Danger sold 50,000 copies.
Murray is also reportedly quoted as saying that PSN was”the only way we could self-publish. XBLA is kind of a slaughterhouse for smaller developers. There’s two titles released every week and a lot of those are falling in that 25,000 or less category.”
