Xbox Live Activity

Major Nelson, aka, Larry Hryb does this on a weekly basis. I don’t always check this, but i did this week and found what i saw interested, so i thought i’d pass it on to you.

All lists are based on World Wide Unique Users on Xbox Live. These lists are based on title usage (while connected to Xbox Live.)

Xbox 360 Top Live Titles
1 Splinter Cell Double Agent
2 Call of Duty 2
3 Pro Evolution Soccer 6
4 Madden NFL 07
5 Ghost Recon 3
6 Saints Row
7 Tony Hawk’s Project 8 Demo
8 Final Fantasy XI
9 Marvel Ultimate Alliance
10 Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 07

Top Arcade Titles (Full Versions)
1 Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
4 Texas Hold ’em
5 Hexic HD
6 Geometry Wars Evolved
8 Street Fighter II’ Hyper Fighting
9 Bankshot Billiards 2

Original Xbox Top Live Games
1 Halo 2
2 Battlefield 2: MC
3 Madden NFL 07
4 Counter-Strike
5 Rainbow Six 3 BA
6 Star Wars: Battlfrnt 2
7 Forza Motorsport
8 Splinter Cell-DA
9 Splinter Cell Chaos
10 Rainbow Six 3

If the Xbox 360 list and the Original Xbox list were combined, then Halo 2 would be the top Xbox Live title, followed by Xbox 360 titles.

Now i must repeat, in addition to the Major, that these are not multiplayer statistics, it’s title usage, apart from the Original Xbox Titles.

Things i found interesting were that Pro Evolution Soccer 6 is on that list, even though it is only available in Europe. I think that considering it has managed to climb to an impressive number 3. And also, UNO, this game is doing much better than i personally had ever imagined it doing, but i doubt Microsoft would disagree with me when i say that no one could have predicted just how popular this would be. Just my two cents (that’s the right phrase right?)



  1. : )

  2. Methinks you should say ‘just my two pence’ from now on 😛

  3. Yeah, perhaps only Jay has the right to say that on this blog, what with *actually* living in america and all…
