  • Ganon255

    Thanks Major. Can we get a “Games for Windows Live” list next week?


  • Kyaizen

    BFBC2 is going to dominate that list next week! This game’s a lot of fun.


  • Xbox Sonic

    MW2 was Activision’s biggest earner but this couldn’t help, too funny.


  • DurableJunk

    Can’t wait to see where Battlefield Bad Co. 2 lands next week


  • Gonzo345

    +1 I want to see Battlfield: Bad Company 2 next week 🙂

    Hope EA prevents this time the “usual” dedicated servers crashes during their Battlefield launches…


  • AriesDog

    I agree with Ganon255. Games for Windows Live needs to be on this list every week.


  • Atheist Primate

    BF: BC2 might do good to begin with, but MW2 and Halo 3 will dominate the charts a couple of weeks after that. Just look at COD4. It’s the fifth most played game, and it was out november 2007. Even better for Halo 3, it’s number two. Where is the first Bad Company? No where to be seen on top 20. BC2 won’t stand a chance agaisnt MW2 when it comes to online play. Not even if DICE throws a million punches towards the game they’re trying to beat.


  • xLoCk 0nx

    Bad Company 1 was a highly underrated game and it was actually one of my favourites. Bring on variety with vehicles and squad work over COD any day! I think Bad Company 2 may do well to begin with, but how long it lasts ultimately comes down to how addicted people are to getting Prestige XYZ on MW2. COD4 really does well because it was really the defining game of the series. Where is COD3, COD 2 and COD 1? Oh, you get my point.


  • Glenn ZA

    Thanks for getting the lists up Major! Great seeing what is being played on LIVE.

    The Arcade Titles will change quite a bit with the release of Block Party and the 3 exciting new Arcade Titles… Bring on Toy Soldiers!


  • Bill 12951

    I’m also curious to see where Bad Company 2 sits next week. I really think that it should be it numer 1, it definitely deserves it. DICE did a great job with it!


  • HomerJ 2000

    How did Gears 2 get to number 8?


  • AriesDog

    @HomerJ 2000. Are you saying how did it get that low or how did it get that high?

    It’s a great game. Maybe not your cup of tea but there’s no doubting it’s popular. I have no interest in FIFA but obviously it must be good if so many people play it week after week.


  • Tino008

    Happy to see Gears 2 back in the Top 10. Hoping for a Gears 3 announcement soon!


  • Thiago123

    Gears 2 back in the top 10…boo, what a glitchy disaster the multiplayer was. Great campaign, but EPIC, please spend sometime on multiplayer testing and matchmaking for the inevitable Gears 3.
    @KristofferLygre – you are right. I love both franchises, but as I’m likely going to move on to BF exclusively for a while (until new MW2 maps come out), I’m glad…theres always enough players on BFBC for many matches, but its not as clogged with modders and racists clowns.


  • xXNapsterManXx

    who loves toy soldiers i love toy soldiers. Cant wait getting BFBC2 when it gets released tommoro here in australia


  • Abe

    I’m a bit sad to not see Greed Corp crack the top 20 of XBLA. At least there is a gem awaiting folks looking for a strategy game should they find it. bad tutorial, learned by trial and error.


  • kingbet123

    BC2 is a ton of fun. My friends and I REALLY enjoyed the multiplayer.

    Good to see Gears in the Top 10…even if the naysayers don’t think so. 🙂


  • onemorechanc

    Add my vote to those who want to see “Games for Windows Live” on the weekly post. It would be neat to see those statistics … especially with the March promotions that are running.


  • Silvercube

    Lol, what?
    Xbox Dashboard for #3 on the Original Xbox games?

    Alrighty then 🙂



    Here’s the weekly request for a Top Add-ons/DLC Purchased list. Hopefully that will be replacing the Original Xbox list after 4/15. And speaking of that list, wtf is Xbox Dashboard doing at #3??? hahaha


  • VILIUS169

    MW2 will be #1 next week again.anyway thanks Major for top20


  • Searing Wave


    Again, you never cease to establish your superior immaturity. Give it a rest.


  • Mr Barrel Roll

    “Xbox dashboard” is #3 probably because of all the people making last-minute DLC downloads before that whole system is shut down in the near future.

    Where did all the music games go??? I’d again blame the sheer volume of Guitar Hero games released in the past year for diluting the audience beyond sustainability, but well that kind of blew up in my face last time. Apparently this made me a Halo fanboy or something. I don’t really know.



    @mr barrel roll, rock band 2 was on there i think 2 weeks ago but it was only like 19th =/ and i agree, i think too many guitar hero games were spammed out, they said theres only going to be 1 this year but i dont believe that tbh. The best one was probably Guitar Hero 3.
    lol i like how FourZeroTwo is saying Gaylo when its 2nd on his list
    again, as a few people have said before, a games for windows list would be good with the deals going on right now for it.


  • DiatomicMaster

    I wonder if they’ll track the Halo: Reach beta.
