MTV reports the relative success that Geometry Wars has experienced in the wake of the Xbox 360 launch. Competing against high-profile games that cost many millions to produce from software giants such as EA, Geometry Wars’ deceptively simple gameplay has addicted thousands to the Xbox Live download.
It is often mentioned as one of top favorites of the game launches among some of the more hardcore video gamers out there looking to grab that high score. According to the article, Geometry Wars demonstrates the unique ability of Xbox Live to transform small companies with big ideas into major power players in the industry, with titles costing anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 to make on Xbox Live. Compare that to the $6 million or more that it sometimes costs to make games for Xbox 360.
Well, here’s hoping that the Xbox Live service continues to reach out to those desperate and talented programmers out there who currently don’t have the means to break into the industry. Here might be their chance.
