Looks like the hit action game Payday 2 pays well for its publishers as the game already sold 1.58 million copies in all platforms combined. The interesting part is that 80% of this amount are from digital sales, not retail. These dgital sales come from platforms like Steam and PSN.
Since we do not have access to digital sales data all the time, this announcement is sure enough to bring people to realize that digital sales is actually helping the industry. But of course, this is on a case to case basis. What works for Payday may not work for other games.
Payday 2 was released in August 2013
