RedLynx appeared to have a platinum game on its hands in June, when the Finnish developer said that Trials HD had attracted more than 1 million players. Today, RedLynx officially hit that platinum milestone, saying that its downloadable stunt racer had sold more than a million units since its launch as an Xbox Live Arcade title in August 2009.

RedLynx noted that Trials HD's sales milestone does not include the game's first expansion pack, Trials HD - Big Pack. That add-on, which launched for 400 Microsoft points ($5) on December 22, added 35 tracks, more than 50 new "physics objects," tournaments, and an extra 50 achievement points. A second add-on, Big Thrills, will add 40 more tracks, 10 user-created courses, and the opportunity to win cash prizes when it launches later this year.

Trying this at home just might result in selling a million units.

Beyond Trials HD, RedLynx is continuing its stunt racing ambitions with MotoHeroz, announced for WiiWare earlier this month. A side-scrolling platform racer, MotoHeroz offers both single-player and multiplayer modes, as well as more than 100 different racing tracks spread across a variety of environments.

Deceptive game that starts out seeming simplistic and only semi-cool, and eventually drives you to the brink of insanity and takes over every available free moment you have! This game is easily the best game on xbla!

impressive. as for exclusivity. MS published it, but that isn't always the defining factor. but with them making a Wii version under a different name, it's an indication that MS was more involved to where they won't allow a port.

Glad to see it got the recognition it deserved. I only had a couple problems. One was it got way too hard towards the end, but also that's what made it really good, it took serious skill to get good medals toward the end, and even some in the middle. Now the one thing I REALLY hated was not being able to download user content unless it was a friends', I have 85 friends on my list and only 2 have it and neither creates tracks. I enjoy building maps, but I wish I could download other peoples content.

This is an awesome game. The only thing holding it back from being perfection is that you can only share tracks with your 'friends'. If they made a way where you can post and download tracks like on little big planet, the community would explode with an unlimited amount of tracks.

I didn't buy this game until it went on sale earlier this summer. Should have gotten it earlier. I love the game. The physics really make it something special. I'm glad to see it's selling well. Kudos to RedLynx. If you like Trials HD and have a PS3, give Joe Danger a go. Both are great bike games.

This is one of those games that doesn't look like anything I'd be interested in, yet everyone who plays it raves about it. I have never played this. Something tells me that I should change that.

I believe that I have played TrialsHD for at least a million hours, awesome news, congrats. This is truly deserved for making one of the most addicting games I have ever played. A big thank you to RedLynx and the community as well, as I have about 160 great user creations to ride. All I have left to say is...more please !

Good to see it sold that many copies. Absolutely amazing game. I've spent endless hours on it. I've never had so much fun trying to crush my friends records. Speaking of that...Aaron, if you are reading this, I'll be taking my golds back before you know it!
