    Dear Microsoft,can you please buy Bizarre Creations developers(again) as they are supposedly closing on Friday as they can’t find a buyer,and i can’t think of any other studio i would rather have for PGR5-yours sincerely Metallicorphan :)

    and can i just say,its quite surprising to see GTA4 at number 6 ahead of Red Dead,MW2,WaW,Halo 3 and Battlefield:BC2..well done GTA

  • metallicorphan

    *i meant MW1..damn

  • Exu

    Good deals are good.

  • EndrzGame

    So happy to see Pinball FX 2 climbing the weekly sales charts. I’ve played a lot of the arcade offerings over the years but this game is definitely my favorite out of all of them. Bravo to Zen for bringing back the silver ball. Everyone should get it, as well as the Marvel tables.

  • Grumbledock

    Fun that the voicechanger for the 360 is so popular, thinking about getting one myself since it’s a blast and only costs 1$.
    Great whan playing online with randoms ;)

  • GameOnJohn

    No Kinect games in the top 20. I’m not surprised. Thanks for the list Larry.

  • The Grim Heaper

    Why the heck is Modern Warfare 2 still up there? Also, I’d be surprised if MvC 3 isn’t up in at least the top 5 next week.

  • VILIUS169

    4 COD’s in the top 10.anyway, thank you MAJOR

  • dirty whirlwind

    Metallicorphan: Microsoft have never owned Bizarre Creations. Sadly, Bizarre’s finished now. If Microsoft would have been cool and all they should have bought them, but since that’s not their focus at the moment they decided not to. Although, if you looking for an arcade racer that, IMO, surpasses Project Gotham take a look at Rockstar San Diego’s MIdnight Club: Los Angeles if you haven’t already, which kind of gave me the same feeling I had the first time I played Metropolis Street Racer.

  • AARON82

    good to see battlefield climbing back up the charts,im surprised its at number 8 there are only around 10-14,000 people on it at any given time

  • bullka LT

    No Medal of Honor in the TOP20? Strange… I played that game few days in a row and all the games were full. Thought that game is still popular.

  • chiruno99

    Again, SUPRISE SUPRISE who’s at the top. I don’t even think MvC3 could beat it, but I guess about a million of sad sad people have nothing better to do. As usual though the arcade games are basically laid out to which was on sale before hand etc, and Indie games are just Avatar Fart Massage Zombie Apocalypse with Girls. Sure it has good SHMups in there, but as usual there are too many docile minded people to care for them.

    Speaking of Pinball FX2, are there any new tables coming for it any time soon? Something on the lines of classic games, like a Metal Slug table by any chance? Can you pull some strings for me even though you can’t?

  • Stephan1237

    Noo Fable 3 anymore

  • Ark Hunter

    Game Room is still on the list?

  • Thiago123

    No real surprises here though I expected Dead Space 2 to be higher. It would have been nice to see how well it did on release, along with the Bulletstorm and Crysis 2 Demos.

    Actually 1 surprise for me, Game Room sales still occurring, and cracking the top 15. Wish MS hadn’t quit on this, could have done well with good games finally on the horizon (and some presumably sitting on our hard drives) like Sunset Riders.

    @ The Grim Heaper:
    The fact that your surprised that MW2 is #2 makes it understandable that you think MvC3 will crack the Top 5. There is no chance of that since the top 4 are locks and it will have to go against much more popular games/genres for the #5 spot.

  • DiatomicMaster

    Yeeeeeep. Map packs aren’t gonna do it, Bungie. Patch your game.

  • Spargo CXVII

    Hey Major, can you ask and see when we are going to get Halo CE, and Halo 2 for Games on demand for Windows 7. Pls!!!

  • The Grim Heaper


    Ehhh, yeah, I can see where you’re coming from with that. The Top 5 barely ever changes from week to week… guess I just want a change already. =/


    Here we go again with all the sore losers complaints. Why do you have to bash people that don’t play the games that you like. If COD titles are always in the top 5 there must be a reason. Like maybe many people like playing them. If your game isn’t in the top list don’t worry about it. Just play what you like and the other millions of gamers will play what they want. On another note thanks Major for all the info you share with us.

  • wolfzero01

    it amazing that MW2 is #2 since I thought everyone was playing Black Ops.

  • Mr Barrel Roll

    I was wondering where these went. Kind of the reason I bookmarked this blog… :/

    @KING RANGEL – Huh? What sore losers? Where? Maybe I missed them, every else here seems to be civil… Except for you, Trolly McInternet Troll.

  • Xlrking

    Im not even going to say anything about the Xbox Live list at this point.


    Sorry @Mr Barell Roll but did you not read @chiruno99 post. It’s ok I accept yor apology. Not trying to be negative it just seems every time major post the live update I always see the complaints about COD titles being in the top spots.


    That’s amazing to see that my friends sticked to MW2 and dropped BOps… MW2 still above Halo:Reach :/ I really need to give a try to this CoD series !

  • nawlins08

    Not surprised at the top couple of games, i still find myself playing them, even tho i try not to, its hard when all your friends play them, I have just been pulling myself away from them because they are so repetitive, yet still somehow fun, not sure why haha
