Would be interesting to see trials evolutions first week sales.

Call me crazy, but i think 500k!

I think that's like a lot too high, but I guess it has done quite well.

On Trueachievements it has already more players in its first day than Fez had in its first 7 days.
Trials HD has some incredible steady legs, so I guess Trials Evolution will have them too and won't be so frontloaded.


Maybe that was the fanboy in me speaking, lol. I'll go with 350k. Anyway, about 10 people i know have got this game and it already have 9k reviews on XBLA. Oh, and its good that XBLA games now have 400G instaed of 200. I got 300/300G in the first one

Anyway, Im downloading it now and i cant wait, Trails HD was my favourite game of all time!

btw I remember the thread where you showed you most precious achievement.

It was Marathon in Trials HD right ? and you wondered why it "only" has a TA ratio of 4.52.
I just read that they changed the tracks for that tournament and threw out all the hard ones ^^

Here's hoping Alan Wake's American Nightmare makes the list soon.

not my favourite game of all time but it is my favourite xbox arcade game. competing with some friends makes so much fun in that games it's unbelievable. playing with some guys at the same time with all of them in the chat and then "pahahaha xyz i broke your record on blablub track" and all "pahaha lololol" is so much fun^^

 



well well Gamasutra's search function is currently disabled til Monday, so I can't quite update the games from 200k-300k, but they just released their new March 2012 analysis:
http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/168889/Indepth_Xbox_Live_Arcade_sales_analysis_March_2012.php

- I Am Alive does 147.000 in its first month, very good start
- Alan Wake AN has currently 55k players on its leaderboards after 6 weeks, but MS suggested that the sales are about double that number due to the leaderboard implementation
- Gotham City Impostors does very well and adds another 80.000 this month for a total of 188.000

wow that's huge for not even two days. However the previous record holder is still Dead Rising Case Zero as far as I know with over 300k sales in its first week.

Are you equating leaderboard numbers to sales figures for those games? Because leaderboard numbers include people who have played the game that don't actually own it.

But I suppose that is the best way to get a rough estimate of the sales....I'll look up some of the games that I own and give you the numbers for them.

Most games wont rank you until the game is purchased.



Trials: Evolutions sales are now 150k! 300k for the week is quite possible me thinks.



so 10k in 2 hours ?
Well that's great, but I think you don't need to update more than twice or three times a day :P
