Geometry Wars Hits 1 million players

Today we are very pleased to announce that there are now more than one million combined leaderboard entries for Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 1 & 2! Now that’s a lot of highscoring and shape blasting! GWRE was released in November 2005, and its sequel saw the light of day at the end of July 2008.

Unfortunately it’s impossible to tell whether these leaderboard entries equate to one million real life people. It’s possible to have multiple accounts on your Xbox 360 which are used by a single person. Also there’s going to be quite a few people who own both games, and have a leaderboard entry on each. Mind you, the leaderboards also don’t take into account anybody who plays whilst not connected to Xbox Live, for example folks who own the XBL games compilation disc.

Obviously these numbers don’t take into account the versions of Geometry Wars available on other platforms: mobile phone, PC, Xbox 1, Nintendo Wii and DS.

Anyway, it’s still a very important milestone for the Geometry Wars franchise and one which we’re very proud of here at Bizarre. If you’d like to check your positions on the Retro Evolved leaderboards, you can do so directly on this website.(Bizarre Creations)
