The teams themselves reported revenues ranging between $21,000 (£13,000) and $129,500 (£80,200), and revealed a strong rate of converts from trial to full-game purchase.
GamerBytes deduced that best seller "I MAED A GAM3 W1TH ZOMB1ES 1NIT!!!1", which has been downloaded 160,000 times, made around $112,000 (£69,366) after Microsoft's cut. Avatar Drop and RC-AirSim were the second and third best sellers in 2009, but only converted a small number of their 400,000-plus trial users.
Avatar Drop made $81,900 (£50,714) and RC-AirSim made $129,000 (£79,880).
Titles outside of the top 20 best-seller list made a lot less, taking home between $500 (£310) and $17,500 (£10,835).
