Black Ops Finally dethroned from Xbox Live activity chart

1 min read


It’s finally happened. After a full year of reigning supreme as the most played game on Xbox Live, Black Ops has finally been kicked off the top spot. No prizes for guessing that the game that’s usurped it is Modern Warfare 3. Yup. Call of Duty beat Call of Duty beat Call of Duty. Thankfully Call of Duty doesn’t hold the all three top spots – because another modern combat shooter’s managed to wriggle in to third spot – yup, Battlefield’s getting some decent online time in 3rd spot, putting the two year old Modern Warfare 2 in number 4.

That’s really got to be disheartening for the team at Epic, whose current Flagship Gears of War 3 has only managed to sit pretty at 5.

Top twenty Xbox Live titles after the jump

  1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops
  3. Battlefield 3
  4. Modern Warfare 2
  5. Gears of War 3
  6. FIFA 12 
  7. Skyrim
  8. Halo: Reach
  9. Madden NFL 12
  10. GTA IV
  11. Batman: Arkham City
  12. Forza Motorsport 4
  13. NBA 2K12
  14. Call of Duty 4
  15. FIFA Soccer 11
  16. Halo 3
  17. NHL12
  18. NCAA Football 12
  19. Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood
  20. Call of Duty: WaW

Interestingly, Call of Duty 4 and World at War also find their way in to the top 20, which is astounding. People really, really, really love their Call of Duty.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
