    What do you mean you “haven’t bought it yet”?

  • http://twitter.com/crunchewy Crunchewy

    Ok, but what are the numbers? This report is only as interesting as the numbers, and there are none.

    • http://saveandquitgaming.com Justin McFarland

      Elsewhere has reported 100,000 copies.

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Jimmy Rustler

      Over 100,000 on day one.

      • http://twitter.com/crunchewy Crunchewy

        I saw those numbers, but those are estimates. Microsoft has the facts, but is not telling. Oh, and the game is freaking awesome and totally deserves it. :)

          The over 100,000 came from the developers on Twitter so that’s not an estimate.

          You’re not likely going to get anything more than that, at least from Microsoft. They don’t release XBLA sales data.

        • 200.000+ gamerscore

          well, if you checked the leaderboards on the first few tracks you could have seen there was well over 100.000 players

    Congratulations RedLynx! Beyond impressive but not surprised!
    So well deserved!

    well deserved indeed .. i knew after PAX Prime last year this game would pwn.

  • Anonymous

    It seems all the hype for this game was well deserved. Everyone has been raving about it so far.
    Congrats to those who won codes for it. I cannot believe I missed the deadline for ALL FOUR contests by 30 minutes to an hour each. I guess real life got in the way. Oh well can’t win them all. :)

      It’s a legitimate strategy!

  • http://twitter.com/crunchewy Crunchewy

    The only thing I’m a little iffy on in this game is the weird bits where the track turns. It’s a little bit stomach turning at times, and seems a bit pointless and weird. Otherwise, super awesome.

    • http://twitter.com/SMG_823 Steve

      lol i thought the same thing its hard to tell when the track is about to turn and then it happens mid jump and it really messes with my head and made me feel a little sick. but still a awesome game.

    I Wonder if Minecraft will beat this?

    • http://twitter.com/crunchewy Crunchewy

      If my kids have anything to do with it, yes it will. LOL. They have 1600 points at the ready, so there’s at least one sale.

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Jimmy Rustler

      I had Minecraft down for best-selling NEXT game over at XBLAfans, but now I’m really not so sure.

    • Fssfd

      I doubt it. A lot of people already have Minecraft in some form on other platforms so they won’t be as eager to pick it up the first week of release. If you want to play Trails Evolution however, this was your only option to do so.

      • http://twitter.com/crunchewy Crunchewy

        That’s a valid point, although I think the experience will be different enough, and the fan base large enough, that it’s going to sell really well. Just the fact that my kids will be able to play together splitscreen on the Xbox is a big plus for them.

        • http://twitter.com/ruairionline ruairionline

          Same here. I’m looking forward to playing Minecraft with my son.

  • Matt Honan

    Good job RedLynx, you built another great game and I bought it. Easy to learn, difficult to master. I am always playing BF3 not wanting to have any other game take that time, but with Trial Evolution spent a couple hours last night pushing to get gold medals on all the tracks.

    Congrats on the great Sales accomplishment, hope more developers see this and put forward a lot more Quality and Fleshed out titles, Would love some great RPGs in the marketplace, I mean Costume Quest is the closest I can get to a Traditional RPG(or JRPG) and I loved it, would like more games like that.

    • Anonymous

      Costume Quest is one of my all time favorite XBLA games!

        They need to make a bigger, badder, better sequel, would BUY!

      • http://twitter.com/crunchewy Crunchewy

        I concur. Great game.

    Still waiting for the code we agreed upon for my Pic of the Day comment back in February…

      Send a DM to @playxbla on Twitter to remind XBLA Alex, or email playxbla@microsoft.com. She is super busy today with a film crew that’s in the office, but I will remind her to get it out so you can play this weekend!

        I wrote to you guys two days ago and got the response that you got the codes. But still nothing. How many reminders does it take?

      • http://twitter.com/Navarin Jimmy Rustler

        Yeah Chris, you never gave me the code you said I could have for averting disaster after last year’s Fruit Ninja Kinect score contest count went belly up when the Audrey/Alex changeover happened either.

        Though this site’s given me so much since then I’m honestly not that bothered. :p

    It is a great game. I have a 140 medals so far. Must keep playing.

  • Stacey Lackey

    Awesome fun..just hope that the scoring and leaderboards issue gets straightened out. I l played all day yesterday in the public forum Supercross mode and ended up with 0 points and when the game crashed I lost four levels.

    Other than this, the game rocks- need some female rider options and more clothing options.
