    Now, especially, we need a new top 20 list. Do away with the original Xbox top ten, because honestly, no one here is paying it much attention and it rarely changes at all (don’t really follow it, but it’s not like there is anything new on Xbox!). With 4 or 5 games that will remain in the top 10, games like Dragon Age, Forza 3 and BORDERLANDS that don’t show up make them look like they aren’t “popular” which some people translate to “not any good”. Those three games are AWESOME, and while the masses were saving up for their nvgs and not buying the other releases, they deserve some recognition, even if it means showing up at 11 behind a few FREE demos (I am pretty sure a free demo will outsell a $60 game most of the time). Really…look at the list. Madden and FIFA will be up there every week. MW2 and H3 every week. COD4, WaW, and Gears2 most weeks…that’s 7 of the 10 right there! Throw in a Bayonetta Demo (public in Dec) and there goes another spot. We definitely need a top 20 list to see the full diversity of what is going on with Live.


  • KP ScuzzyBunny

    …and YES, Trials HD is “that” good. Definitely play the demo. Oh, and the Bayonetta Demo is awesome. I had no interest in the game at all, but scored an early demo copy, and the game is amazing.

    First of all I would like to say “Hi”. This is my first comment here.

    MW2 GOTY for me, I’m buying this next week or two. Can’t wait to join friends on LIVE. Trials HD? Demo was great .. going to buy full when I get some MS Points.

    Thanks for great work Major and Hi Everyone once again. Have a great time!


  • Beyond Genocide

    I’m in love with MW2.

    It’s gonna be #1 for quite some time.


  • wiirule111

    I want Community games in EU, so i can buy Supercow and probably more. 😉


  • Des 07

    Can you actually play on Xbox Live using the old Xbox or are the Original Xbox stats from people playing on Xbox 360?


  • Fletch955

    Shame Bungie totally neglected matchmaking for Halo ODST, hence it’s 9th and most likely out of the top 10 before Xmas. Great planning!! 🙂


  • nawlins08

    thats why they put the halo 3 multiplayer disk in there, its gotten more people to play halo 3 multiplayer, which is why since it came out, except for this week it was number1, and i think it will be number 2 for quite some time, then after x-mas and before spring we will see h3 fighting for that top spot, and knowing halo, it will around summer, in anticipation of halo:reach!!


  • Searing Wave


    Probably earlier, like during the Spring.



    With the news of Activision adding a THIRD developer to the CoD franchise (, we’re probably going to end up at some point with almost HALF of the top 10 list being just CoD games alone! (yet another point in favor of making a top 20 list)
    After the record-breaking MW2 launch, I’m sure Bobby Kotick is just chomping at the bit to milk his CoD cash-cow until it’s squirting out dust. And of course all the CoD fanboys won’t disappoint him either while he’s laughing all the way to the bank.


  • Frag Monger

    Wow! Halo 3 in 3rd? That’s extremely rare. Way to go MW2! 🙂


  • HenkvdWeerdt

    Always nice to see the new king is standing on top.


  • Anonymous

    @MACPH1ST0 – wow, a third CoD dev… Why don’t they add a fourth while they’re at it so they can have the same amount of teets as a cow’s utter so they can REALLY milk the franchise.

    Honestly, while I do enjoy the CoD titles by IW, I’m surprised CoD has prospered as well as it has. Does anyone besides me remember the early days? The CoD origins? Back when it was powered by the iD Quake engine and was going head to head against Medal of Honor: Allied Assault on PC? It was so laughably arcade style that anyone who played MoH:AA tended to avoid CoD like the plague.

    Funny how things turn out. CoD successfully ports to consoles while Medal of Honor tried and flopped miserably.


  • GmDude66
