Jetpack Joyride downloaded 1 million times on PS3 and Vita


##@image@##

Halfbrick, creators of titles such as the excellent Fruit Ninja, have today announced that Jetpack Joyride on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, has been downloaded 1,000,000 times in 2013.

The PlayStation version of the game was actually developed on behalf of HalfBrick by Aussie studio Big Ant, who managed to capture what makes this game so great on other platforms.

"It's been another incredible month for Jetpack Joyride, said Phil Larsen, Halfbrick's Chief Marketing Officer. "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."

If you haven't downloaded Jet pack joyride yet then don't worry, you can pick it up for free on either format.

That is pretty amazing, but I hope it doesn't force developers to start making these kinds of games, they're good for about 5 minutes on a mobile device, I want my console populated with console games, that have stories and great gameplay

My fave PSN game to date is the awesome Sideways, I dont really follow PSN games although I know there are some absolute gems and I cant wait for the pupeteer, Im going to check this out if I can finally get rid of my HMV voucher ile get me a nice 40 quid PSN card then pick this up

You'll be pleased to know that it's a free download for both vita and ps3, but strangely costs 1.59 on psp.

Its a great milestone...except its free.

So, kinda meaningless really. When free things pop up on XBL, I get them whether I have any intention of playing them or not. To be honest, with 50million XBL yearly subscribers, if I released something for free, if it didnt get downloaded at least 3million times, you gotta really look at the product you are creating.

I use Xbox in this reference, as I have no idea of the amount of people on PSN....as its free, its hard to measure active users.

There aren't 50 million subscribers on XBL though, that's users total, Microsoft have always refused to disclose actual subscribers vs user figures, but last I heard Gold members were the minority on the service.
