    Assasins Creed if falling off like bad dope.

  • VVho Cares

    Would like to see a top 20 list like the good ole days of

  • Joecr

    Last time I checked “Gears of War 2″ was nothing like “Demo: Madden NFL 10″ that you linked it to.

  • clarky456

    More people need to play the Indie game Miner Dig Deep, it’s really good.

  • CaptainCaterpie

    Wow ACII falling off, Gow 2 back (isn’t it triple XP or something?), and GTA IV still right up there. Pleased FIFA 10 is doing so well. Borderlands, interestingly, no where to be seen. MW2 will be at #1 until Reach. And whatever happened to Forza 3?

    Top 15 or Top 20 please Major.

  • Computerdude103


  • mchiefvs360

    No surpirses here.

  • Searing Wave

    Still hoping for an extended list, and perhaps a Top Games for Windows Live list.

    Doubt Modern Warfare 2 will hold the top spot much longer than until Spring. Gears of War 2 I’m planning on playing a lot, at least in the short term. Triple experience and the 12 days of Christmas event have me interested.

  • TBizzle4Shizzle

    11-20 please.


    Weekly request for Top 20 and Top Add-ons lists (and ditch the Original Xbox list!).

  • Anonymous

    unable to download the trial version of “0day attack on earth” error code 80070570
    enough space on my hard drive though

  • stststststq

    I’m getting the same error as Utako with that game. Error 80070570. I’m in the UK if that makes a difference.

  • SAKY

    Next week will be the most interesting, I’m looking for the other 2 COD games to fall off the chart after X-mas.

  • Boe2

    Trials HD down 2 places, ouch. Though I guess it’s not that big of a surprise when you see the first two titles. With the Trials expansion this week it will be #1 next week again no doubt :).

  • Boe2

    Also, when do we Europeans finally get to play Indie Games? I played some really nice ones on the US marketplace, but alas, can’t buy them there.

  • Thiago123

    Still shocked to see COD4 so high up after MW2 took over #1…Just how much of a gap would there be if everyone switched to MW2? Clearly Halo 3 is close because when somethign new is updated, it picks back up, but everyone else must be way off.
    I’ll also be interested in seeing what happens with COD4 and AC2 after everyone opens their X-Mas presents ;).

  • wolfzero01

    I see that the top 4 is still the same, interesting that Gears 2 is back, yet no Borderlands which is more fun to play (really need to get the Zombie DLC)

  • VVho Cares

    COD6 is so plagued with glitches that a lot of people are going back to COD5 and COD4.

  • Static Jak

    “COD6 is so plagued with glitches that a lot of people are going back to COD5 and COD4.”

    Yet MW2 is still in first while COD4 has dropped 2 places over the last 3 weeks.

  • Xper Vadam

    Ditto on the Top 20 please, Major.

  • Xlrking

    Every game on the top 5 from xbox live top titles is always the same old shite.
    Im just happy to see L4D2 up there still, and when the new Borderlands DLC comes out, hopefully it will boost Borderlands up.

  • Alex Atkin UK


    Why on earth would you want to ditch the original Xbox list? It isn’t hurting anyone and its fascinating to see what classic games are good enough to hold their own.

    You have to remember, some of those will be people playing them on their Xbox 360 and last I checked Xbox Live was XBOX Live, not Xbox 360 Live. So that list is still totally relevant.


    @ Alex Atkin UK: That list has stayed almost exactly the same for months if not years now, with the games on it only occasionally shuffling positions. Sure, the 360 may still have BC on it (unlike a certain other current-gen console), but the Original Xbox list has long since lost its relevancy due to stagnation caused by Microsoft’s abandoning of the Xbox Originals program or any further BC support.

  • ToothlessFrog

    Just a thought on the daily deals before new year’s. Why do you offer such great discounts on games that so many of your customer base have already bought? I like the offers, but why not make an offer that is nice to all instead of those who decided not to buy your product?
    Why not offer 50% off your next download, or 50% off 800 MS points, or something that would benefit all, not exlude those who have already made the game being offered a success? It’s really does alienate those who are your best customer base. Makes no sense to me at all.


    Gears of War 2… some people complain… most people enjoy it and put it on the Top Ten.

    And I want a Top 20 list too please :3

  • yolarrydabomb

    yeah I think its time to make the list a little bit bigger. I like to know who the most really playing 11-20
