Would you believe it? Trials Evolution is popular. So popular in fact, that it has shattered Xbox Live Arcade records, making RedLynx/Ubisoft/Microsoft more cash in 24-hours than any XBLA title prior.

It wasn’t all champagne and pats on the back at RedLynx HQ though. In lieue of the overwhelming number of people getting their vroom on, Evolution’s leaderboards went kaput. The developer is working with Microsoft to ensure there are enough servers in place to accomodate a potential weekend blitz.
