Runic Games Sees Highest Sale Day Ever with Torchlight XBLA Launch

March 15, 2011 -

Runic Games announced today that the launch of Torchlight for Xbox LIVE Arcade resulted in the game's best sale day in the company's admittedly short history, but did not disclose sales numbers. Torchlight for Xbox LIVE premiered as part of Microsoft’s House Party lineup on Wednesday, March 9th. The game is an action-RPG based on the PC game of the same name. The XBLA version has been streamlined for Microsoft's platform, though much of the content remains mostly the same. New features include a revamped user interface, streamlined inventory management, new items, Achievements and Avatar awards.

"We're very excited to bring Torchlight to the 360, and have been really gratified by the positive reaction. It's affirming to know that console players love this genre as much as we do. We think the experience translates pretty well to the couch," said President Travis Baldree.

The game is available for 1200 MS Points. Personal opinion? It's worth every virtual penny.

The xbla version is just as good as the PC version. And for those that want multiplayer there will be one in the sequal.

Dungeon crawling is damn near expected to have multiplayer, and rather than add it in a patch LIKE THEY PROMISED WHEN THE GAME CAME OUT, they're now saying wait for a sequel. And we laud this company as being "one of the good ones"?

Re: Runic Games Sees Highest Sale Day Ever with Torchlight ...

I was excited to play a Diablo clone.  Until I realized they still haven't added multiplayer.  WTF! 

Re: Runic Games Sees Highest Sale Day Ever with Torchlight ...

The PC version felt like a bad ripoff of a 10 year old game (diablo 2). Is the XBLA version any different? If you can't even make your game as good as the one you are copying, is it worth making the game?

Goth_SkunkFinally, I never misspelled Chipman's name. So, feel free to try your luck again, but pick an opponent you can beat.07/30/2015 - 8:32pm
Goth_Skunk@Technogeek: I paid for the experience of the seat, and upon completion of the movie determined that the extra for the seat wasn't worth it. Additionally, your opinion is not law. You thinking the movie is crap does not make it so.07/30/2015 - 8:31pm
Craig R.1st I heard of Pixels was seeing trailer in theater. Was interested until Sandler appeared, then it became an instant 'Nope'.07/30/2015 - 4:52pm

MechaCrashIt's especially funny because I said "you'd have to be a moron to enjoy it," and Goth boasted about enjoying it, as if that does anything to change my opinion of the movie or of him.07/30/2015 - 4:19pm
TechnogeekMatthew: Back when that law was first implemented, I kept trying to come up with a scenario where it would be anything other than an unmitigatedd sisaster. Nothing ever came to mind.07/30/2015 - 4:16pm

TechnogeekI can't even make a joke about that. It's like poking fun at Donald Trump's hair.07/30/2015 - 4:01pm
TechnogeekSo you willingly paid more money than you needed to in order to watch a crappy Adam Sandler movie (but I repeat myself), just to spite a reviewer that you can't even spell the name of properly.07/30/2015 - 4:01pm
Goth_SkunkMy one regret was paying extra for a DVX seat, which jostles and vibrates in relation to the action on screen. What a waste of money.07/30/2015 - 3:55pm
Goth_SkunkYes, I did watch Pixels just to spite Chipman. I was originally going to see Minions, but moved it down the list. AND I ENJOYED IT. So nuts to you, MechaCrash.07/30/2015 - 3:44pm
Matthew Wilson@phx works fine for me, but I did it the long way. I upgraded, made a recovery drive, than did a full install.07/30/2015 - 3:24pm
Andrew EisenReally liking Child of Light so far (I play on console so UPlay isn't a concern). Gorgeous aesthetic with a fun presentation and battle system. So far, so good!07/30/2015 - 1:36pm
PHX CorpWell I'm offically on Windows 10 Laptop Wise(I had to download the Windows 10 Media tool from Microsoft to get it now rather than waiting for the update through windows update)07/30/2015 - 12:16pm
ZippyDSMleeI dunno I'd go to see it, seems liek dumb fun, better than half assed serious stuff that has so many holes large enough to drive mac trucks through(coughinterstellercouch).07/30/2015 - 10:58am
Andrew EisenGoth - Wait, you went to see Pixels just to spite Chipman?07/30/2015 - 10:49am
MechaCrashYou can see Pixels, which requires you to be a moron to enjoy it, or you can actually spend that time and money watching something actually good. Gosh, what a choice.07/30/2015 - 10:49am
benohawkHot damn, I'm sold. Why see something you can enjoy on multiple levels when you can nap through half the film and still get it all?07/30/2015 - 10:17am
james_fudgeSo what people are saying is PIXELS is a great movie to see if your are comatose.07/30/2015 - 9:47am
