Fruit Ninja may be best known as a multi-million selling mobile game where you get to slice oranges with a sword, but now it's a successful Xbox 360 game, too. Halfbrick today revealed that Fruit Ninja Kinect sold 500,000 copies since being released last August, proving that the franchise has reach outside of the mobile space. It also announced that iOS hit Jetpack Joyride has been downloaded 14 million times, experiencing explosive growth since going free last October. Prior to the freemium switch, the game had been downloaded one million times. Since then numbers have skyrocketed by 13 million, showing how much a difference even $1 can make. And there's more to come, with an update due to launch in the next month, described by Halfbrick as its biggest to date.
