Trials Evolution nets highest grossing day-one sales in XBLA history

Though Microsoft won't confirm numbers.

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."
