    Map pack came out didn’t it..


  • DarkGunner93

    CoD’s back on top, I think that and Halo are gonna be swapping about for a while.


  • TimJBart

    Surely Trials HD has made a decent pot of money from XBLA, considering the popularity and price. It’s good to see.



    Wow if Trials HD did that well in the Top Live Games, then Shadow Complex should be even higher next week considering all the hype and rave reviews it’s getting so far.


  • Wet Vein

    Trials HD is great… glad to see it doing well. And I wouldn’t be surprised to see Shadow Complex crack the top 5. (Live titles)

    *Off Topic* – Major, why would you guys let people rate content that they don’t own? You know Roger Ebert is going to give everything 1 star. This is your worst decision since Microsoft Bob.


  • Drunk Ste

    Well other than Miner Dig Deep it looks like user ratings have had little impact on the Indie Games chart. The next highest rated game on the list is myFishtank at number 46 followed by Physics Sandbox at number 82.

    How come Turtles in Time Re-Shelled is ranked NO.2 & BF 1943 NO.3 in arcade but BF is in live games top 10 and turtles isnt?


  • CyberKnight

    @T Mecha:
    If I read this right:

    Live Top 10 = games played
    Top Arcade Titles = games purchased

    So more new purchases of Turtles happened last week, but more people played BF1943 (which includes all the purchases from all weeks before this).


  • T Mecha


    thanx for clearing that one up 🙂


  • wolfzero01

    how is GTA IV still in the top 5, I didn’t know people were still playing it online, & hasn’t everyone finished it by now?

    does anyone know when the avatar award for splosion man is going to be released?



    Good to see WAW back to where it should be.


  • oO MG81 Oo

    COD WAW is great. Good to see it in first place.


  • Anonymous

    WTF? Halo isnt #1, it must be snowing in hell. ’bout time


  • dipsetboy17

    yeah for trial’s hd. i hope everyone buy this excellent xbla game. it deserves it.


  • EldonTLH

    @wolfzero01: Bought GTAIV on launch day and achievement-wise, I’m still at ~320 (or 32% as it goes on the “other” side). It’s an excellent game and it’s less than a year old so why wouldn’t there be players? Halo 2 is about five years old now and it’s still going strong – why wouldn’t GTAIV?

    As for ‘Splosion Man, as the developers said, good things come to those who wait 🙂


  • Anonymous

    Take that all you Modern Warfare and Halo fanboys.

    Having said though however, I cannot wait till Modern Warfare 2. Why you ask? Well, because I’m not a fanboy who attaches himself to one game; if it’s good, I’ll play it. So stop whining about WAW, and grow up.


  • TooLegitVolz

    Honestly, how is it not obvious to some that the only reason Call of Duty: World at War is number 1 simply because they just released a map pack. It will be number one for about a week or two more and then Halo 3 will go back up top as always.

    Report: Xbox 360 Failure Rate Reaches 54%

    New survey says Microsoft’s Red Ring of Death contines to rise.

    by Jim Reilly

    August 17, 2009 – If your Xbox 360 hasn’t broken down yet or suffered from the dreaded red ring of death, then consider yourself pretty lucky.

    A new survey published in Game Informer’s print edition indicates the Xbox 360 failure rate has climbed to a shocking 54.2%. The magazine surveyed nearly 5000 readers, asking them about their experience dealing with broken consoles.

    Here are their findings:

    Console failure rate

    Xbox 360 – 54.2%

    Playstation 3 – 10.6%

    Wii – 6.8%

    Percentage of console owners who suffered a second hardware failure after the original repair.

    Xbox 360 – 41.2%

    Playstation 3 – 14.7%

    Wii – 11%

    Percentage of people who rate their customer service experience “very helpful”

    Nintendo – 56.1%

    Sony – 51.1%

    Microsoft – 37.7%

    Percentage of respondents whose friends have had console hardware failures.

    Xbox 360 – 69.9%

    Playstation 3 – 12.4%

    Wii – 6%

    The magazine also makes a few notes about their results:

    The reason the Wii has the lowest hardware failure rate could be because console is played the least of the three. 41.4% of Wii owners surveyed said they play the console less than one hour a day, meanwhile the majority of Xbox 360 (40.3%) and Playstation 3 (37%) owners say they play their console on an average of three to five hours day.

    Also, only 3.8% of respondents said they’d never buy another Xbox system because of the failure rates.

    How have your experiences been?

    I don’t understand why people are still playing GTA4 online…has to be the worst multiplayer component of any game…ever…


  • metallicorphan


    GTA4-does that mean online play,or just connected while playing the single player?…i didn’t mind the multiplayer,it wasn’t that bad,but didnt really go back to it

    i have two friends on my friends list who still play it everynight online,they play together

    and there were a lot of different multiplayer gametypes as i am sure there was something for everyone


  • EldonTLH

    @metallicoprhan: All games on the (main) list are while connected to Live, no matter if it’s multiplayer or single player, Gold or Silver. If you pop any game in while on Live, even for a minute, it counts.


  • XxLightkunxX

    Wow…1 vs 100 must really be reeling in the attendees with the Live shows if it’s constantly showing up in the Top 10.


  • RazzLee

    I’m sure this has been commented on before but here goes anyway…

    I wonder if H3 will drop off ot the top ten all together when ODST comes out. If everyone who buys ODST uses that disc to play the HALO 3 Multiplayer, how will it count on the Live Title Activity?


  • Raiden BR

    Only 3 days and Madden already made it to the Top 10.. wow!
