PixelJunk Eden’s Success Story
SCEA’s Susan Panico gave some insight into the advantages of PSN development by focusing on PixelJunk Eden, Q-Games’ third PSN title. Panico stated, “PixelJunk Eden made its return on investment within 24 hours.”
All sales afterwards were pure profit. It’s very impressive that a small, independent studio was able to have so much success with the help of PlayStation Network, and is a testament to Sony’s ability to push digital distribution as a strong business model for development teams of any size.
