|Crackdown Demo Breaks XBLM recordPublished by eltsha on Wednesday, January 31, 2007

Microsoft's recent Crackdown demo, a free download available only for Gold Tier members on Marketplace, this week made Microsoft history.
That's right, beating out top downloads like Lost Planet and Fight Night among others, Microsoft''s Crackdown demo, released on January 23, kicked everyone else's asses. Microsoft told IGN that this week the Crackdown playable demo was the most downloaded demo for a 24-hour period and the most downloaded demo during a seven day (week-long) period.
All this and the Halo 3 Beta wasn''t even included. Slight jest there, but it''s true. Perhaps gamers are finding they like Realtime World's game more than they initially did? Perhaps word of mouth was the key? Perhaps co-op gaming was smartly realized in Crackdown (you could play the demo online with two players)? Maybe there are simply more gamers with Xbox Live Gold Tier accounts -- and few games are coming out in January? There are probably many reasons and all of these assuredly pertain.
Microsoft wouldn't release actual numbers, but is likely to do so in the near future.
