UK developers are rocking the Kinect space; according to the country’s data cruncher GFK Chart-Track and UKIE, 42% of all Kinect titles sold since the device’s launch last November have been crafted by the country’s own studios.
Kinect Sports, the biggest seller by far, came from Microsoft’s Rare studio in Twycross, while Cambridge-based Frontier Developments is responsible for Kinectimals, another favorite.
Speaking more to UK developers’ strength, UKIE points out that 30% of all PlayStation Move software sales also came from the UK, as did Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet 2, which debuted at the top of the UK’s all-formats sales charts this week.
“The array of strong products that our home-grown, UK talent is producing is something we can all be proud of,” said director general Michael Rawlinson. “This just shows how our UK developer base remains one of the best in the world, and can continue to step up to the plate as the market develops and platforms evolve.”
