Trials Evolution breaks XBLA day-one sales record

Microsoft has confirmed that Trials Evolution has set the record for the highest grossing day-one sales of any Xbox Live Arcade game ever released.

No official sales figures have been released just yet, but developer Red Lynx did note that the game’s servers were effectively overloaded on launch day, as over 100,000 players rushed to post their scores to the title’s leaderboards.

The famously challenging platform racing hybrid, a sequel to 2009’s smash hit Trials HD, was released last week to widespread critical acclaim.
