    No Crysis 2 Or Home Front

      It’s hard for me to believe that Crysis 2 is getting beat by a few of these titles…

     Unfortunately gears 3 had a little disadvantage due to it closing mon, it would be nice to see last weeks with gears 3 because it would be a complete week.

    • link1a

       That was for May 9-May 15. It was a complete week. I still can’t believe it only made 5th. I expected it to beat Halo: Reach. Exclusivity of the beta may have been the problem.

  • Marcus McCurdy

    I’m surprised Crysis 2 isn’t on these lists. Despite some of it’s issues, it’s still got a great MP.

  • Steven Burton

     Seriously can we like remove all CoD titles from the list… boycott MW3! get BF3 instead!

    • Steven Burton

       Seriously can we like remove all CoD titles from the list… boycott MW3! get BF3 instead!

      • Sam Taylor

         Or get both and enjoy two (mostly likely to be) very good games?

      • Joshua M. Anaya


    • Mike DeWire

       So is there some rule on the internet where anytime someone see’s Call of Duty mentioned now they have to start whining and say “COD IS SUX! BF IS BETTERS!!!!”

  • Anonymous

    Yes! Call of Duty is on top once again! I bet Searing Wave must be pissed that his precious Halo is up there in the top 2

       I haven’t commented on these lists in over a year, and you’re still talking about me?  I totally forgot about you, and that’s because immature kids such as yourself aren’t worth the effort.  Have fun.

    Hey Mr. Nelson,

    i know i keep on asking you to post these more frequently each time, so thank you!

  • Bionic92

    I’m surprised CoD4 is still holding strong.

  • Jordan Konicki

    Please post these more often please, it’s good to know what everyone’s still playing from time to time.

      it’s better to post them every couple weeks instead of every couple months.

  • doctorcowley

    That Indie list is depressing, why the hell is ‘Sequence’ not on that list. Such an awesome game and better than most of the tat released on the arcade

  • Vanessa Sotherland

    I hope you keep posting these lists, especially for next week. I’m really excited to see how L.A. Noire will do.

  • Russell Gorall

     I’m not sure who you are counting as a unique user, apparently the Rockstar forums.

  • Mr. Superstar

    Any chance in the future you can add most purchased Xbox Live titles for Windows Phone 7?

  • Anonymous

    I think it’s great that Pinball FX2 is still near the top of the list. Arguably my favorite XBLA game ever. Everyone should check it out.

  • Anonymous

    Wow why is Full House Poker the best selling XBLA game?

    thanks major more weekly updates plz!

  • Ray Whitney

    I’m sure Game Room would be doing better if it was fixed, had more games released for it and, I dunno, we were told what on Earth was going on with it. 

  • Marc Pipe

    Hey Mr Nelson do you know if kinect voice support will be available for all countries (i am in new zealand by the way) any time soon or in the next little while. Thanks, Marc.
