Well good lord. After its first week of availability, Bionic Commando Rearmed
has sold 130,000 copies. Capcom's own Ben Judd reported the news
on the Bionic Commando
blog with the appropriate fervor, saying, "Holy fiddlesticks!" He followed up his elation saying that while the sales pale in comparison to retail titles, 130,000 copies qualifies Rearmed
as a "JUGGERNAUT." One of the important and overlooked elements of this story is that Rearmed
was made available on Xbox Live Arcade, PSN and PC, so we're not sure exactly what percentage each service pulled. Regardless it's obvious that Rearmed
has struck a chord and Judd notes that this proves that gamers do enjoy seeing the games of yesteryear made available again, so long as they are "done right" and for the right price. We couldn't agree more.
