Infinity Blade ranks all-time fastest grossing app
We could go on talking about how great a game is, but it wouldn't matter a jot if people don't like it. Well, it seems that is not the case for Infinity Blade as the world voted (and votes) with its dollar to make it the fastest grossing app ever. It took just 4 days for the app to register more than 270,000 users and at a price tag of $5.99 that comes just above the staggering $1.6 million. And the number just keeps on growing since the launch of the app on December 9th.

We should note that the figure does not represent an exact number as some of the games were purchased discounted with a promo code, but it is way more than what we have seen before. Infinity Blade replaces Cut the Rope, the addictive iPhone puzzler, from the first place in the top grossing category. Cut the Rope held the record before with revenues of more than $1 million in 10 days.

Epic and Chair Entertainment Group, creators of Infinity Blade, however will get only 70 per cent of the sum as per App Store's policy Cupertino grabs a 30 per cent cut. Check out our initial thoughts on the game here and let us know if you liked it in the comments.

I swear, it's games like this and N.O.V.A. that make the iPhone a legit gaming system. The graphics are absolutely amazing and so is the story telling.

I agree that mobile phones have replaced a lot of casual PSP and DS gamers' needs. Nintendo and Sony have both said that their biggest threat is the iPhone. High end Android phones and WP7 should have the same ability to handle games like this too. The unreal 3 engine on a phone is just ridiculous! EPIC should port this to Android and WP7 to make more money and spread the love to other users as well.

Yeah, I actually sold both my PSP and DS after I got the iPhone
