Some content (and therefore the links) may not be available in all Xbox LIVE regions.



  • AOClaus

    It’ll be interesting to see where the beta ends up.


  • NEW P4TH

    Halo Reach Beta is going to be number 1 next week!

    Sad to see Splinter Cell Conviction slowly slipping away since thats a great game and I still play it online. Happy to see Perfect Dark XBLA still in the top 10.


  • Kyaizen

    Reach Beta is going to rule that list soon =p


  • Tjoeb123

    Yeah but for like 1-2 weeks.


  • xZepher

    how can WAW possibly have more UU’s than BC2?


  • DarkGin87

    @Major – When will people be getting there promotion points and 1 month gold for buying the block/house party games ? seems a few people are wondering even me


  • Hawaiian c

    @xZepher: i know its odd but you know half of cod players jtag the game heh you know what that means… since they can run there own servers.. man half the rooms i played in cod are tag so i stop playing, haven’t played since jan… i dont mine people make mod hacks but not in multi..


  • Spargo CXVII

    Major do you know if Halo 2 will ever come to the Games for Windows Live Marketplace? (Think Windows7)


  • AriesDog

    Thanks for including Games for Windows games. Seemed weird to leave it out.


  • goobot

    i dont think you can do reach. it will show odst tho which is why it jumped from 17 to 7.


  • I PR1M3 TiM3 I

    WaW on top of BFBC2 FTW!!!!


  • PiNkEyE69

    Yeah no surprise Cod4 and W@W rose sharpely after all the recent modding going on. Shame as at the start it was a good game, now with broken MP. Still, can’t fault the single player or Spec ops. IF ONLY they added some more spec ops missions in with the map pack then I might have bought the dlc.


  • chiruno99

    So no Super Street Figther 4?


  • JorisTheWise

    Major, I have to say, i am a bit disappointed to see the original Xbox missing, after all, Halo 2 is still being played ;).
    But I am curious, will the Halo Reach beta be listed separately or as Halo 3: ODST?


  • Ganon255

    Thanks for the GFWL list!


  • Twilight Miasma

    Borderlands made it in the top 20? Nice!


  • Bill 12951

    Wow! Did not expect for World at War to be higher than BC2 on this one… Very surprising indeed..


  • tbs0

    I don’t think w@w would be on that list without the nazi zombies!


  • r3dreck

    Splinter Cell Conviction: no SvM it’s gonna drop and drop and drop… once Red Dead comes out and the next wave of games it won’t be in the 10. If it had the SvM I’d be playing it till next year.


  • MeS FEAR

    WTF!? Battlefield is behind Cod:WaW??? Oh wait …i know why…EAs Server just suck!! Its not possible to connect to a game server most of the time. Yesterday i couldnt even connect with the EA Server. EA is destroying their best Franchise with sh.. servers. I dont understand how they can do that. Battlefield is such a great game and to me the best multiplayer game of 2010. Its so sad that EA dont want to cooperate with Microsoft. Microsoft always has great Servers.


  • onemorechanc

    Glad to see Games for Windows make the list. And you can add my voice to the list of those asking for “Halo 2” to be released through that service …


  • kaleido42

    Nice idea to have Games for Windows replace the Original XBox list. Saddens me not to see Viva Pinata up there though :(


  • xLoCk 0nx

    Bit surprised to see WaW in front of BC2. Perhaps because I haven’t been whoring it haha (yes, I acknowledge I am just one unique user, but a rape one at that!)


  • Thiago123

    Can’t wait to see where ODST ends up next week now that everyone else has beta access, but no way will it pass the MW2 juggernaut. It wouldn’t surprise me if it ends up in 3rd and WaW rises to 2nd since Halo 3 will decline sharply, but not everyone has an ODST disc. It appears most people are trading their time from BFBC2 to Halo though, and that was a bit surprising….Damn the unwashed masses and their COD love ;) (wow COD4 still in the top 10).

    Also, a bit surprised that L4D2 didn’t pick up more. I thought The Passing was rather enjoyable.


  • SCS 85

    Good to see GFW Live games on the list.


  • Ark Hunter

    Next weeks prediction: Halo 3 drops a spot or more because all the rabid fans are playing the Reach Beta.


  • Gkicker2

    Could you add the previous week’s ranking as part of the current rankings? Kinda like how ESPN does NFL power rankings…
    Just a thought. Thanks!


  • NBA Kirkland

    Has anyone gotten their promised Reach Beta code from MS for playing Halo 2 online before Xbox Live 1 was taken down? I have not.


  • Makavelo

    No SSF4???????




    Gears of War #9 still going strong


  • Lucky 13 X

    Thanks for adding GFW LIVE onto the list.



    I knew Bad Co. 2 would drop poorly executed game, Great to see WaW back in the top three.


  • AutomaticOcelot

    Interesting that 3 of the top 20 are demos. ODST and Reach will probably both have high numbers, because those that got codes will not be using the ODST disc to launch. IIRC there was similar skewing with Crackdown UUs.
    Nice to see some fresh love for Dishwasher. All the C.M. press is doing the lad good.
    Indie name frequency: Avatar=6, Zombie=4. Hope someone is making Avatars vs. Zombies.


  • I DLord I

    BFBC2 was ousted by W@W… what have we done?


  • nawlins08

    I have been playing the Reach Beta this weekend and it is really good, obviously its not perfect, that why they have a beta, but other than a few minor problems its pretty good (wish they would put the Battle Rifle back in) and there is no equipment, something that would add another dynamic aspect to the game.


  • The Real Napsta

    LOL ODST climbed the list awful quick. Can’t wait for the day when MW2 isn’t number 1.
