Developers RedLynx sees 300,000 sales of XBLA title Trials HD

The promising sales figures for Trials HD exemplifies the opportunity provided by digital distribution.

That was the opinion of Tero Virtala, CEO at Trials HD’s Finish developer RedLynx.

Some 300,000 copies of Trials HD have been sold on XBLA since August.

“Xbox Live Arcade definitely provides an excellent platform for high-quality games like Trials HD at very affordable price point,” said Virtala.

“We’re a smaller, 25-person multiplatform studio, and for us this is an excellent example of how digital download space opens up significant opportunities that might not otherwise be available for creative and talented smaller teams,” she added.
