Capcom raises the bar on XBLA

When Capcom announced that it would be bringing a new enhanced and updated version of the hit, Bionic Commando, many didn’t really take notice, but with the recent success of revamped and updated versions of older games on the Xbox 360 there is now the perfect distribution method in Xbox Live Arcade.

The end released product was very well done and much to the surprise of everyone, Bionic Commando: Rearmed has sold an incredible 130,000 units in the first seven days of release.

Capcom suggested that they only expected the game to sell 100,000 units during the life of the release. Capcom remains surprised that it has done so well, but they have received the message loud and clear that Xbox players will buy a good reasonably priced aggressively revamped classic game if it is done right.

We have to agree that the bar has been raised. Not only with Bionic Commando: Rearmed, but with Namco’s Galaga Legions the enhanced new Xbox 360 versions of the classics continue to get good reviews and attention.
