Always Bet on Duke

A week ago Duke Nukem 3D was released to Xbox LIVE Arcade. The response has been phenomenal - the feedback we've gotten on it has been quite positive. Both from old school Dukers reliving the game, or folks who have never played it before. Both newcomers and old Dukers seem to love the new update. This is borne out in the weekly statistics released Tuesday night by Major Nelson of Microsoft.

Duke Nukem 3D was the #1 ranked game on LIVE Arcade, topping such recent Arcade heavyweights such as Braid & Castle Crashers.

If that wasn't cool enough, Duke also cracked the top 10 of ALL games played on Xbox LIVE - including big time titles like Call of Duty 4, Halo 3, and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Thanks to all who have made the re-release of Duke Nukem 3D a major success! If you have an Xbox 360, and haven't checked out Duke Nukem 3D, what are you waiting for? Christmas?
