Proving that Trials Evolution is poised to be the top selling XBLA title of 2012, developer Red Lynx revealed that the game had 100,000 players on day one.
Holy cow! I'll have to check it out. I never played the previous game(s).
The 1st one was really fun this one looks even better
... it's absolutely a contender for downloadable game of the year (along with Journey), and one of the very best games in the XBLA library. I loved TrialsHD, but this is bigger, better, less frustrating, and the editor is AMAZING!
@Yi-Long Less frustrating? You haven't gotten very far, have you?
... I'm about halfway through the hard levels I think, and it's certainly not as hard as TrialsHD. Perhaps the Extreme levels will be 'frustrating', but from what I heard from people who have already done them, it's certainly more do-able than those Extreme tracks in TrialsHD. :) BTW: http://img.photobucket.com/... Wooohooooo! :D
Completely deserves it.
Actual numbers? That's how you do it. Don't brag about stuff and can't back it up, lol.
Exactly, the jackasses at Polytron can suck it with Fez's commercial failure. That's what you get when your lead guy is a complete tool who insults gamers everywhere. Well deserved success for the Trials team though, they deserve it.
... but I had to save my points for Trials Evolution, knowing THAT'S the game I'll be playing the coming weeks/months! I'll buy Fez as soon as I can give it the attention it deserves.
well Fez is not a type of game that alot of people will be into to begin with...and a 90% metacritic fez did awesome thank you very much.
the game is ACE... loving it. I hope it sells 100,000 more over the weekend...it deserves huge success!
The first one was really fun and actually gave you a lot of content. (side games/mini games) this one looks like it stepped it's game up (pun intended) can't wait to check it out.
Wow, that's a lot of MS points xD. Def worth getting. Soooo fun with 4 players.
worth every penny and kudos to the devs, the game is unreal and its packed with so much, much better for first time players as well, everything is just better
The tweet says 100,000 day 1 players....sound very different to selling 100,000 copies in day 1, XBLA has a trial version for all arcade games....those players played the game, doesn't mean they all bought it. If it's indeed 100k sold in day 1....then proud to be one of those, fun game.
was just going to say this - they worded it very deliberately. saying "100 000 day 1 players" is very different to saying "100 000 day 1 sales". i played it on day 1, but i havent bought it yet - no doubt i am counted in that 100 000 figure. i will buy it though, because its an awesome game and i love Trials HD which i did buy. they deserve 100 000 day 1 sales, but they didnt get it going by this statement.
A lot of good games deserve 100k day 1 sales, but with people, who are blinded by fanboyism, to many good titles are over looked.
A million plus sales, its stunning and packed with content. I have played full release games that offer half of what this game does
This game is even better than the first. XBLA GOTY contender for sure.
for 1200MSP this is a STEAL! Tons of content. The local mp is a blast. Infinite number of custom track possible through the editor and server. Its a bit too easy though would be my only comment. For hardcore Trials HD riders this is piss easy until you get to the last 10 or so tracks. I think they made it a bit more accessable for the new or casual gamer. I've golded all upto flatliner already and plats now to do. I'm relying on the community to produce some seriously testing extreme tracks as those are what the hardcore crave. All hail the GIGATRACK! - 8.32m for me so far :))
I HATE the gigatrack, seriously. I LOVE the game though.
Awesome sales, props to the devs for a great sequel.
