Bionic Commando title sells 130,000 in first week

"We have set a standard in digital gaming" - Judd

Capcom and Grin's retro remake Bionic Commando Rearmed has sold over 130,000 copies in its first week of release.

The download-only title has set a new standard for digital distribution according to producer Ben Judd, who believes the sales success can inspire other developers.

"While it's great to have my first title be not only a critically acclaimed one but also a financial success, there is a bigger picture at play here that we need to look at. Consumers voted with their dollars," he wrote on the game's official blog.

"Basically, we have set a standard in digital gaming. The bar has been raised and you have let developers around the world know that if they invest the time, money, and heart into making (and remaking) some great games, you will support that initiative."
