Larsen also says Joyriders should look out for the next update:

There's an update coming in the next month. It's the biggest one we've done so far.

Oh, and Fruit Ninja Kinect has reached a half-million sales figure, essentially proving that the company could do well on consoles as well. I'd be wary about losing one of the best mobile developers to the home console market though. Fruit Ninja obviously did well because of it's name-recognition with the Kinect-purchasing crowd.
