Xbox Live Has its Best March Sales to Date

As the retail space is starting to see signs of recovery, online game sales seem to be improving as well. reports that March 2010 was a record-setting month for Xbox Live Arcade sales. According to the market research firm Forecasting and Analyzing Digital Entertainment (FADE), March sales topped $10 million for the first time ever, amounting to a 41% increase over 2009.
