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

  • http://twitter.com/JAYLEXPWn Alex

    Congrats Minecraft for Knocking Out the dominating COD.

  • http://twitter.com/bobbyb2k Bobby B

    Congratulations Minecraft!

  • mcmax3000

    WOW. I seriously didn’t expect anything would top CoD this generation.

    • http://www.mayoand.co Aron Mayo

      this generation? Halo Reach did it less than 2 years ago.

      • mcmax3000

        I guess I should’ve been more specific… For the rest of this generation. I know it has happened in the past.

        • http://twitter.com/quitsine Quitsine

          Well gears1 was very strong on the charts until 2 and 3 came out.

  • http://twitter.com/sir_PING1 Ryan Graham

    wow we finally reached the milestone of a arcade game beating a retail game, I’m so glad somebody toppled CoD from 1st place, so congrats Minecraft

    • http://twitter.com/lord187x Lawson

      Not just a milestone of an arcade beating a retail game, a game beating Call of Duty, period. That in itself is amazing. How long has Call of Duty been at the top, 5-6 years straight without anyone getting close.

    • http://www.facebook.com/chris.grub.5 Chris Grub

      It’s amazing that such an amazing game doesn’t have a retail version and is yet so successful.

    • http://twitter.com/kronos0316 junior

      yeaaaaaaa minecraft #1

  • H1TnRON

    How long has the call of duty franchise held that top spot?

    • Lee Rayson

      Since MW2 but Halo 3 still holds longest title to have it

  • http://twitter.com/SoK1989 Stuart O’Kane

    …and fire cometh down from the heavens, and consumeth all the people.

  • sammysoso505

    Nice to see Halo 3 still hanging in there!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002192908453 Matthew Wild

      By a thread!

      • Lee Rayson

        IT go up a few places by the next one there some games that will just fall all the list within the next few weeks

  • http://www.facebook.com/chris.grub.5 Chris Grub

    Couldn’t we just call it FIFA 13, instead of:

    “Electronic Arts Sports Fédération Internationale de Football Association Soccer 13″

  • Alicegamer

    Never liked minecraft, but congrats! Glad to see someone knock COD off top spot.

  • http://twitter.com/CraziedZombies Josh Cox

    how is GTA 4 PC still number one lol? Its been up there just as long as call of duty MW3 was?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002192908453 Matthew Wild

      who plays on windows live?

  • arkhunter

    Wow…

  • http://www.facebook.com/chris.grub.5 Chris Grub

    I don’t know why, but I couldn’t stop laughing at this comment.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002192908453 Matthew Wild

      yeah lol

  • http://twitter.com/MechalonDrache Justin Green

    Wow, Sonic Adventure 2 at number 3, and Jet Set Radio still top 20 on XBLA titles? Way to go Sega.

    • Russell Gorall

      I think they were just released a few weeks ago.

  • DannySi

    As much as I’d like to give credit to Minecraft (which it completely deserves), I think this speaks more to just how bad MW3 is.

  • http://twitter.com/Ben166wwe Ben Thomas

    Halo 4 is gonna be #2!!!!!

    • http://twitter.com/Ben166wwe Ben Thomas

      Halo 3 gets the most props though. 256 weeks in the top 10.

      • Emmanuel Santos

        going back and playing, that game was extremely well made. something about their graphics processing is just beautiful

  • Ryan

    Dayuuuuuum go Minecraft!!!!

  • Ryan

    I had a laugh. Thank you, good sir.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brian.ray.9404 Brian Ray

    minecraft is great. it’s sad that you focus on graphics more than gameplay. you probably only played the demo and turned it off in less than 20 minutes. I have friends who thought the same way then they bought it. now they play only minecraft

  • Russell Gorall

    Death to tyrants. I have to go return some videotapes.

  • pharmassist

    anything that gets cod out of there is fine by me. though, i’d prefer if it were halo.

    • Matt_Soultaker_Echo

      When i was introduced to the xbox 360 in 2009 i started playing halo 3. i was mainly a nintendo fan but i once owned every nintendo system, PS1,PS2, atari 2700 and 3 saga consoles. I never had an original xbox console. I was the the true definition of gaming nerd lol. Halo 4 is coming nov 6th i bet you can not wait, neither can i lol.

  • Lee Rayson

    1)Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition – Nice to see Cod Finnaly top off the top spot
    2)Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
    3)EA Sports FIFA Soccer 13 – i stillt hink this will creep up a another place
    4)Call of Duty: Black Ops
    5)Borderlands 2 – still holding in there but could do better
    6)Halo: Reach – got back in there due to excitement for halo 4
    What i like most about this is Halo 3 spent along time at the top spot and it was only mw2 that took it off and no game has came close since, normally Cod games knock each other off the list but to see Minecraft take the top spot from MW3 before the next CoD is quiet interesting
    I know BL ops 2 will take top spot day one but can it last till the next Cod?

  • Matt_Soultaker_Echo

    See larry alot of fans weren’t lying about mw3 being so lame and boring. I am one of the call of duty fan boys that is very disappointed at how MW3 turned out and I am very happy to say Congrats to 4JStudios, Mojang and Microsoft and Thank you for bringing Minecraft to the xbox live arcade and your welcome. Its about time we see mw3 get knocked off of that undeserving number 1 spot. however i always will be a cod fan just not for infinity ward. Us loyal gamers should burn are mw3 games or have a party yay MW4 Better not be as disapointing. Black ops 2 is around the corner but i truly can not wait to see what everyone at Mojang, Microsoft And 4JStudios Instore for us. The wait and anticipation and pain taking but i will try my hardest to remain patient.

    • Hugoku

      Well, while seeing any non-COD (or non-FPS for that matter) game at the top of the charts is a very welcome change, I’d say it is hardly any indicative of what the community thinks as a whole of MW3. Being #2 (out of 100s, maybe 1000s of games) is not a disaster by any means. It’s very popular and people is happy with it (and if not, just happy enough to keep playing it non-stop).

  • likalaruku

    Damn, almost every game in the Top Indie list is a Minecraft clone.

  • http://www.facebook.com/evan.lazer.5 Evan Lazer

    finally creativity is better than destruction

  • EndrzGame

    STOP LIKING WHAT I DON’T LIKE

  • http://twitter.com/Dave_Rees Dave Rees

    I agree Xcom is such a great game hopfullly more people will give it a try

  • mcmax3000

    I’d guess Halo 4 takes the top spot during its launch week, then sadly, Black Ops 2 is on top again for a good long while.

  • Russell Gorall

    I played that last week. An amazing game, and a solid direction for the IP.

  • Lee Rayson

    Problem is the average gamer doesnt get into games they don’t know how to play they stick to the same games.

  • a fat mess

    Congratulations Minecraft! It isn’t easy taking down the juggernaut known as Call of Duty, but you did. Hopefully this triggers a chain reaction where COD fades into irrelevancy.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brian.ray.9404 Brian Ray

    COD is such poop. it’s the same game every single year. just like madden and the 2k games.
    I mean seriously, they pay a graphic designer to redesign the title screen and menu and repackage the same game. Its sad that millions of people are too dumb to catch on.
    COD is the abercrombie of video games. so wack!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/christopher.p.maxey Christopher P. Maxey

    I hope Dark Souls will be a contender for top spot in the Windows LIVE category.

  • JoeGrahamcracker

    I would like to see Madden 13 drop a lot lower!! 2k13 isn’t that good this year, but it’s miles ahead of Madden.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jonah-Falcon/525044162 Jonah Falcon

    Shout out to Happy Wars making #11 on the list.

  • http://twitter.com/quitsine Quitsine

    Lol epic is in trouble. Back to gears 1 if they ever want to be in the top 10 . Lol. Minecraft any day instead of gears3

  • http://twitter.com/quitsine Quitsine

    I can’t wait for the next update of Minecraft. Ender dragon ..
