Cthulhu Saves The World PC beat Xbox sales in six days!

The PC version of Cthulhu Saves The World made more money in six days than the Xbox Live Indie Games version has made to date. Did we mention that the Steam version is bundled with Breath of Death VII for $3.00, and still made more money than Cthulhu and Dead VII on XBLIG combined? 

Yeah, it did. 

Breath of Death has been on XBLIG since April 2009 for $1.00, while Cthulhu launched last December for $3.00. To date, they've sold 50,000 and up to 17,000 copies respectively. These figures were stomped on by the Steam bundle, which has made $100,000 and sold 30,000 copies since it launched last week. 

Nice job promotin' them indies, Microsoft!
