PC Dungeon Defenders Sells 200K

Trendy Entertainment, D3Publisher and Reverb Publishing announce that Dungeon Defenders has now sold over 250,000 units on Steam, Xbox LIVE, and PlayStation Network, and that 200,000 of those sales were for the PC. To celebrate they are planning special events for the vast minority of console users, because, well, who knows, there's probably a really good reason. Here's word:

Twain Harte, CA – November 2 – Trendy Entertainment, D3Publisher and Reverb Publishing announced today that its recently released action/tower defense/RPG mash-up Dungeon Defenders, with 200,000 units sold on PC alone, is a runaway success with over 250,000 sales total on all three platforms – Steam, Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation® Network. To celebrate, Trendy is announcing one of its many plans to continue to support the game across all platforms, with free, weekly community events for PS3 and Xbox 360 players. These events will allow gamers to play special game modes with the devs and have a chance to win unique loot found nowhere else.

They already released a special event on the PC. Halloween Spooktacular. It added 8 costumes, a new mission and new weapons. PC is still getting lots of love. So don't take the special event for consoles as a dick move towards the PC. If anything, PC gets more love than any other platform right now.

Okay perhaps that was a bit hasty on my part. Instead of what I originally thought it to be, it is merely a terribly misguided press release. They ought to decouple:

game doing quite well amongst people in group A.

from:

As a result, we are giving perks to people in groups B and C.

because if you put those together, it totally sounds like a dick move. Even if it isn't.

Agreed. It's a poorly worded press release. I'm still unsure of whether or not these weekly community events will be console exclusive. Some of the things Trendy does, while great, doesn't make much sense. Offering exclusives to the various platforms and creating all that fragmentation doesn't seem like a good thing to me.

Either way that's their problem. As long as they keep up the great work on PC, I'll be happy. And I am right now. Great game. I'd recommend it, especially at the $14.99 price point.
