Technical issues aside, EA Dice's multiplayer-only downloadable shooter Battlefield 1943 proved to be quite the success on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network when it launched in early July. Two weeks after release, EA touted the game as "the fastest selling day one and week one download-only game" worldwide on Xbox Live and in North America for the PSN, accruing some 600,000 purchases.
Today, Microsoft announced that Battlefield 1943 has a new single-player-only complement on Xbox Live. According to the publisher, Epic Games and Chair Entertainment's Shadow Complex now officially holds the record for "the most downloaded single-player title" for Xbox Live Arcade. Having launched as an Xbox 360-exclusive on August 19, the action platformer sold 200,000 copies during its first-week of release, Microsoft noted.
Developed by Chair, which is owned by Epic, Shadow Complex was first shown during Microsoft's 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference. Often likened to the Super Metroid line of 2D side-scrolling action adventures, Shadow Complex melds high-intensity shooting with intricate exploration and puzzle-solving elements.
