Brink, currently sitting at number one in the United Kingdom, has enjoyed a disproportionate amount of sales on the Xbox 360 in its home country. 69% of British retail sales were on the 360, while the PS3 version got 23% and the PC version only 8%.

The PS3 is generally a much more competitive console in Britain, where there's a lot of Sony loyalty. With players unable to get their PS3 games online due to the three-week outage, it seems most consumers went for the console that works. Well, I say works ... the 360 version might as well not be online with the current lag.

This follows news that retailers have taken in an exceptional amount of PS3 trade-ins. Although the PlayStation Network is now coming back online, I think the affects of the outage will be felt for quite some time.

The Evil Within is totally disrespectful to barbed wire, you guys

The Evil Within looks like it has the potential to make me giggle with devilish glee, so I really hope it doesn't disappoint. Unfortunately, I have to take issue with its negative portrayal of barbed wire. Luckily, The Onion...more
