The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutraís community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.

 

It is 31st December, 2011 – last day of 2011. I thought it was about time I did a full count of how many game units we have sold/freebied. I was surprised it was a little over a quarter of a million – sounds like a lot of people! I had around 100,000 in my head so that was a nice surprise.

Alas a lot of the bigger numbers were free downloads/free promotions, but even so – I was really pleased with the numbers.

I thought I’d share them – and as such they are included below broken down into the different formats – iOS, PSP & WiiWare. I didn’t include PC as the numbers really aren’t worth including (probably about 20 units total!).

iOS

Bashi Blocks

iPhone 19,945
iPad 5,523

Family Games Fun

iPhone 18,203
iPad 24,591

TOTAL: 68,262

WiiWare

Figures Removed at the Request of Nintendo

PSP Minis/PSN

Bashi Blocks

83,595

Arcade Darts

16,069

Arcade Air Hockey & Bowling

24,818

Arcade Pool & Snooker

3,410

Arcade Bundle

5,998

Family Games

8,829

Pool Hall Pro

3,012

Vertigo

960

TOTAL: 146,691

GRAND TOTAL: over 250,000

So there we have it – Worldwide there are over 250,000 copies of our games kicking around on various platforms.

I’d like to think that a good percentage of that number enjoyed playing them, and I want to say a big thank you from all of us at ICON to everyone who has played any of our games. Hope to see you again in 2012 :)
