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


NO! I will update the sales in this thread every 10 minutes for the next 2 weeks.

Oh, and yeah, 10k in 2 hours is huge!

Yeah but you can have leaderboard data without having to pay for the game correct or incorrect?

 

I could check a few of my games later and let you know.

 

Ghost Recon beta later so give me time lol

"have leaderboard data" in case of viewing it or being part of it ?

I don't think many games offer trial users a place in their leaderboards and if so I'm sure Gamasutra would have listed that somewhere.
Viewing them could/should work but there could also be a difference between silver and gold account there.

I'll give you 10 hours, because I'm going to sleep in a few moments.
Really only check some of the outdated games and maybe some older ones that haven't broken the 200k mark and thus aren't on the list yet.

According to the leaderboards, trials HD has 1,944,064 as of today.

Ok, so I decided to check out the leaderboards of most of my arcade titles (skipped Trials, and all 2012 entries that I know of.) anyways, the problem with a lot of the leaderboards is I have to scrolldown 10 people at a time to get to the bottom, but some like Contra I was able to skip to the bottom by going up once. Others even listed the amount of entries (Streets of Rage) Anyways, heres what I found. (I rounded up BTW)

 

Age Of Booty 47k

Bomberman Live 1,020,000

Castlevania: HOD 88k

Contra 460k

Final Fight Double Impact 198k (So almost 200k...)

Geometry Wars 1 (At least 847k)

Geo Wars 2 (Atleast 307k)

Golden Axe 125k

Gunstar Heroes 30k

Perfect Dark 0 422k

Streets of Rage 2 141k

Super Contra 116k

Super Meat Boy 269k

TMNT 1989 997k

TorchLight 276k

 

If they made the leaderboards easier to navigate would have had all the info for you. I just don't feel like pressing the right trigger/bumper for an hour to scroll to the bottom :P

Cool thanks.

Bomberman Live also has local co-op over Live, so I'll keep track of the official (but still outdated) numbers here:

500k - August 2009
http://www.industrygamers.com/news/hudsons-bomberman-live-sells-over-500000-on-xbox-live/

600k - December 2010
http://investing.businessweek.com/research/stocks/private/snapshot.asp?privcapId=12315098

so true sales probably 700k ?




@man-bear-pig

thanks I just googled the 2m sales figure again and nsanity's source missed one thing "Trials HD [...]  has surpassed the two million units sold mark across the base game and both DLCs."
http://www.redlynx.com/press/96-trials-hd-reaches-two-million-unit-sales
So I'm going to adjust it again.



Trials evolution is officially on the leaderboard! 200,147 copies in 3 days! I'll stick with my 350k prediction for the week.



Eurogamer

Stuntbike sequel Trials Evolution has racked up the highest grossing day-one sales in Xbox Live Arcade history, Microsoft has revealed.

The announcement was made via a post on the platform holder's PlayXBLA blog, though helpfully didn't come with any concrete figures to quantify the record.

Thanks to a Tweet from developer RedLynx earlier today we do know it shifted over 100,000 units, resulting in overloaded multiplayer servers.

The game's success is well-deserved - it won a 9/10 from Eurogamer's Tom Bramwell earlier this week.

"It offers simple, one-player gameplay that uses leaderboards to provoke excitement and competition among strangers, and in this sense it has a lot in common with the original Xbox Live Arcade games," read his Trials Evolution review.

"The way that it makes its challenging content accessible to a majority of players, however, is what singles it out as one of the best."
