Our very personal bestest friend, Major Nelson, has posted Xbox Live activity
for the week of March 2nd. Halo
continues its never-ending battle with Call of Duty
with Halo 3
nudging World at War
from the top spot. Call of Duty 4
, Gears of War 2
) and GTAIV
round out the top five.
series receives some backup this week, with newcomer Halo Wars
debuting at number six. On top of that, the Halo Wars
demo inched up the top ten, moving from the ninth most played to the eighth. FIFA 09
moves up a notch to number 9, shoving Street Fighter IV
to the tenth spot.
Considering the limited edition of Halo Wars
including the Mythic Map Pack
, it might have had something
to do with Halo 3
reclaiming the top spot. The big question now is whether or not Halo Wars
can maintain its momentum. As one of the few RTS games to make a big splash on consoles, you can bet Microsoft is watching it closely.
