Stainless Games aims for "at least one No.1 per year"

The UK's Stainless Games is celebrating 500,000 sales of its Xbox Live Arcade title Magic: The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers.

The game, published by Wizards of the Coast, is the latest from the developer responsible for other downloable hits including Risk: Factions and Scrabble for Electronic Arts.

"Our strategy of concentrating on console download early is really paying off, with all the major corporate players now agreeing that 2011 will be the year of the download," commented Stainless COO Matt Edmunds.

"With our multi-platform technology, we'll be hoping to emulate the success of Duels for other brands on everything from an iPhone to a high-end PC and keep up our track record of at least one No.1 per year."

Magic: The Gathering has now been released for Sony's PlayStation Network with a PlayStation 3 Home space to follow shortly.

We need more "virtual card games" and board games like these. They seem to be a sucess for the many gamers who like TCGs but don't have the time/money to enjoy these kinds of games IRL. Since I left the college it has been hard finding people to play so I would love to do it online.

This is a good game, but TBH it's major downside is the inability to construct you own custom deck completly from scratch.

Stainless should pick up the Talisman game that was being developed for XBLA and finish it off. They'd be perfect for it!
