    Is Halo 2 supposed to link to Halo 1 on the marketplace?

    A shame N+ is so much lower than some of those other titles, it’s the best game of 2008 (in my opinion)!

    Not sure i like the concept of having a top title by unique user. Just because more people tried a game, doesnt mean it should be considered a top title..

    Is a game considered a failure if the demo shows up and not the full retail version like battlefield bad company?

    @ Radical R. More people played it this year than bought it, I assume the XBLA only includes people who purchased those titles in 2008.
