Top LIVE By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • Corriere Hernandez

    first. GO BF3

    • http://twitter.com/AoR_ILoveeJESUS Sean Barrett

      yea if only they didn’t get beat by a game that came out a year ago

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PGXCAL5WSD62RGZVD3IOACKSZY mikey

        too bad most BF players are on PC and not on console buddy, u cod fanboy. same game everytime it comes out.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CMAVF75KRFIEKVGUOBXYFD64NA Bama

          @mikey  Better check your stats, most BF players are on the box with PS3 second pc is last out of the three.

  • http://twitter.com/williamronholm Anonymous

    I expect Skyrim to last at least as long as Oblivion on the top(ish) as a single player only game.

  • http://twitter.com/dannyc2k Daniel Callaghan

    5 call of duty titles in the top 20..

  • Anonymous

    Prefer BF3 over COD but wow COD… nice job.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/BeeDizz BeeDizz

    Gears 3 still in the top 5. Well deserved.

  • McJaml

    mw3 the best game ever, well deserved the first position

    • Anonymous

      indeed brah, best game ever… mw3 >> bf3

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Alice-Lockhart/100000438939703 Alice Lockhart

        I really don’t understand =S… Black Ops it’s better than Modern Warfare 3 O.o… I prefer to play Gears of War 3 or Battlefield 3 =/.

  • http://twitter.com/Croax1000 Tim

    Skyrim should get best game of the year.  well desirved

  • Anonymous

    Not all COD players switched all at once to MW3 as BOP still strong. BF players mostly migrated to BF3 as there is no more BC2 in the list.

    • Anonymous

      That could be from sunday and monday though.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Smokeydogg7 David Kirk

    well this will be your top 2 for the next year the real story will be bf3 how long can it hold #3 also how long will mw2 stay in the top 10

  • Anonymous

    BF3 will most likely get a bump post Black Friday when most stores are selling it for $30 or less

  • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

    Wow at COD being 1,2,4.  Activision just prints money with that series.

    • http://twitter.com/lightsup55 Timothy

      MW3 at 1st
      BO at 2nd
      MW2 at 4th
      MW1 at 14th
      WaW at 20th

      That includes Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (MW1), Call of Duty: World at War (WaW), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (MW2), Call of Duty: Black Ops (BO), and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (MW3)

      How Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare AND Call of Duty: World at War are even in the top 20… I don’t know. Not that many people play them.

      • http://twitter.com/seekul Luke Es | sE ekuL

        Perhaps you should turn your thinking around to realize that those games are in the top 20 BECAUSE many people play them? You think they show up on the list by popular vote?

  • http://twitter.com/KiloOscarZulu KM

    Major, can you please detail how UUs are counted?  If you split screen CoD, Gears or Halo (e.g. when you see GamerTag (1) and GamerTag (2)) is that 2x UUs or just the one?  Remembering that CoD, Gears and Halo lets you do this, while Battlefield 3 does’t.  It could inflate the counting?

    • http://twitter.com/seekul Luke Es | sE ekuL

      UU is a web standard, not something the Major invented. Click the UU linky and check the Wikipedia page. It’s pretty clear about a single IP address, which multiple local gamertags wouldn’t inflate, plus they can track console serial numbers in a way websites cannot track computers to muddy the numbers. And let’s face it, local co-op numbers will never, ever put a dent in online multiplayer numbers.

      • http://twitter.com/KiloOscarZulu KM

        Thanks for that.  I did follow the link to the wiki, but their definition is extremely broad.  It says that UU is IP + identifier.  So wouldn’t GamerTag(1) and GamerTag(2) be counted as the separating identifier thu count as 2x UUs under their definition?  That was why I asked the Major for further clarification.  How about my gamertag and my brother, who also uses the same xbox (via same IP)?  That should count as two UUs, but GamerTag(1) and GamerTag(2) shouldn’t.  I still think split screens inflate the count and these rankings are not as accurate as it could be.

        • Anonymous

          Using a GamerTag could be true.  There are not really cookies which UU generally uses in computers, so GamerTag would be an identifier.  They could also be using the system’s unique number with the IP address.  GamerTag would make more sense from a marketing standpoint though.  If GT are involved, Luke is right, at least I think.  Coop won’t put a huge dent in the numbers and would mostly hurt (though slightly) single player games like Skyrim and MP that does not have split screen.

  • Ryan B

    ….Halo 2 is out of the Top 20 for windows Live? ………

  • Anonymous

    wow at Reach position :0 Glad to see Gears 3 in the top 5. Huge improvement over the past games!

  • http://twitter.com/spartannhilator Zak Hayer

    Major Nelson it looks good, seems to be missing just one small thing…A round off of the avg. amount of players playing atleast the number 1 and number 20, but preferrably all of them so we know just how many people are playing like honestly….how many people are playing peggle which is number 20 in the arcade section?

  • http://twitter.com/DeLaRec Rb Live

    Reach Has Fallen :(

  • ferrarimanf355

    Daytona USA still hanging on! This gives me hope that Daytona USA 2 is coming…

  • Anonymous

    I believe the stats that Bama is talking about actually shows how many people are playing bf3, not sales. Whats your excuse for that one?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PGXCAL5WSD62RGZVD3IOACKSZY mikey

      how wouldnt those to go together? people buy.. then people play? whats your excuse for that one?

  • http://twitter.com/TrashMKX Chris

    The world and its fascination with playing army men games.

  • Anonymous

    Just wow

  • James Marmer

    Kinda sad to see Halo 2 off the GFWL list, but not surprising seeing as i usually only see a max of 100 people online at any given time. I hope the game goes up for digital download sometime so we can finally get more people playing.

  • http://www.ghzsports.com GHz Charles

    Great to see 7 sports titles in the top 20.

  • http://twitter.com/SeanJPhipps Sean Phipps

    Week after week Virtual Tennis 4 is on the top list of Games for Windows. This is remarkable as is far as I can see it is a 360 kinect title only.

  • http://twitter.com/BLOCCSTAxATWx Harley (Joey) Hines

    That’s amazing that there is 5 Call of duty’s on the top 20 xbox live titles!

  • http://twitter.com/BLOCCSTAxATWx Harley (Joey) Hines

    Even more amazing is black ops and MW3 are above battlefield 3 and BF3 is Barley above MW2 LMAO

  • http://www.facebook.com/killpeke Peke Hinojos
