UK-made Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers has now sold more than 500,000 units on XBLA, developer Stainless Games said today.

The game’s 360 version launched in June 2009, and was followed on PC in June 2010 and PS3 in November last year.

Stainless COO Matt Edmunds was effusive at the success, saying better was to come this year.

“Our strategy of concentrating on Console Download early is really paying off, with all the major corporate players now agreeing that 2011 will be the Year of the Download,” he said.

“With our multi-platform technology, we’ll be hoping to emulate the success of Duels for other brands on everything from an iPhone to a high-end PC and keep up our track record of at least one No1 per year.”
