We’ve just heard from our friends at Firemint, who have some great news: Real Racing HD is the #1 paid game on the newly-released iPad! It is the top grossing game and #4 grossing app overall – with only Apple’s own Productivity apps getting in the way of the top spot.
Flight Control HD is also doing very nicely, as the #4 paid game.
Congratulations to this Australian-based, “independent medium-sized studio”, you’ve done us proud. Looks like all the energy you poured into Apple’s new device has paid off, with a couple of very awesome products that the general public are getting behind!
Alex Peters, Firemint‘s Community Manager observes:
We were also interested to see that both iPad games sold a small number of copies before iPad was available in stores, as well as selling in countries other than the US.
…interesting statistics, glad to see these (very) early adopters have such great taste!
