It looks like that freemium release of Jetpack Joyride currently available on the PlayStation Network has really paid off for creator Halfbrick and developer Big Ant. Just in 2013, the run-for-your-life title starring Barry Steakfries has been downloaded more than 1 million times on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. It wasn’t mentioned if these numbers include the $3.99 PS Minis version, but hopefully no one bought that anyways.
Phil Larsen, Chief Marketing Officer at Halfbrick, talked about the success:
It’s been another incredible month for Jetpack Joyride. Player support has been sensational, proving without a doubt that Barry Steakfries is a perfect match for the PS3 and Vita!
We want to extend a massive thanks to the dedicated team at Big Ant for bringing Jetpack Joyride to Sony’s passionate and thriving online community. Our amazing fans continue to exceed expectations, paving the way for more exciting releases further down the line.
