    That’s more than a bit remarkable, no? I don’t mean the absolute (impressive) sales figures, but rather that the Xbox version is so close in sales to the original, older PC version. Quite the surprise. I’m going to guess that the way 4J Studios adapted the game to a controller and more limited console has a lot to do with that success. Kudos all around.
