    The little co-op tower defense action game that could, Dungeon Defenders, has achieved 250,000 sales... it sold 200K units on PC alone, accounting for 80% of sales.

    Trendy plans to continue supporting the title with community events for PS3 and Xbox 360 players, with details found in the gallery below (or downloadable here). The events will include special game modes with the devs and a chance to win unique loot.
    His quote:

    Releasing on PC first is also a financial disaster as piracy rates will angle half-pirates (those people who buy console game but pirate pc ones because its 'easier') into not buying a console version and instead pirating the game for PC simply to have that game at that instant instead of waiting for a console version

    So they're only going to do community events for barely 20% of the players?

    What idiots.

    I guess you could call the people who bought it...

    PC Gaming Defenders.

    Okay that was bad and I feel bad.

    But it's good that they're seeing such high sales, especially when they feared piracy.

    ...
    Maybe they should add a Pirate class.

    Pretty predictable, PC audiences are generally more open to indie and download-only games.

    I didn't even know it launched until the PC version came out and all my friends had it on Steam.

    He was against it, taking EA's "They'll all just pirate it" stance, but now the amount of money they're making is making him eat his words.
