Zeboyd's PC Sales Soar

Zeboyd Games announces that their recent release of Cthulhu Saves the World (and Breath of Death VII: The Beginning) via digital distribution for Windows has raked in more income through Steam than it had in over 18 months on Xbox LIVE: "We are pleased to announce that Zeboyd Games has already made more revenue in less than a week on Steam than we have in over a year and a half on the XBox Live Indie Games service. Thank you again to everyone who has made this huge success possible!" Thanks Joao and Nick via Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

There just isn't a good reason why ppl shouldn't be able to try full games on steam.
And many other things, such as being able to search friends list (would probably take 5 mins to copy the code for searching games list).

I used to think it was because valve was kinda lazy, because a lot of their stuff is like this (took a year to get l4d1 lobbies to a playable state, took a year to fix gas can pipe exploit in l4d2). Now I know from interviews its because its not interesting for valve employees to work on.

Gabe: Its ok to hire people who are good in a specific area (rather than trying to find someone good in everything) and dedicate them to that particular job, even if it might get boring sometimes for that person. Thats what you pay them for.

At 1,79 for both games in a bundle and it appearing right smack in the middle of summer camp sales its no wonder this skyrocket.

Your method of trial would be interesting, but i don't think anyones gonna dare doing it
It appeared right AFTER the summer sale was finished. But yeah that might have something to do with it. People hadn't gotten the buying mood out of their system yet

I think he's saying that trial method is already used on xbox (I don't use xbox much so I don't know for sure)
