has the analysis of the March Xbox Live Arcade sales and (as you probably could have predicted even without a Farsight XR-20) the revamped FPS Perfect Dark
did well with around 195,000 units sold. But the big surprise of the month has to be the tower-defense/action hybrid Toy Soldiers
that, with little in the way of marketing, reached nearly 240,000 units by the end of the month-long Block Party
Sure, Toy Soldiers
had two more weeks (its March 1 launch versus Perfect Dark
's arrival on the 15th), but it's still a convincing testament to the power of word of mouth (word of Tweet?) advertising, especially in the download space.
