This week im playing Black Ops 2 though, just bough it :)
I'm part of those Halo 4 numbers as well. So is my daughter, its co-op Spartan Ops everyday after homework is done.
Forza Horizon will be in the mix next, along with some Black Ops 2. Also, Indie game Block Destruction.
Wtf don't get her hooked on Black Ops 2. They all start young!
I love how MS releases these stats to show what games are popular on BXL. I can't believe Minecraft is #3. where is Sony's top 20 list of games player over PSN? I would love to see the most popular games that are being played.
Sony doesn't show that. It can be a double-edged sword....as it can show that a game isn't very popular. Take Gears 3 for example on XBox Live. Very low on that list which is surprising.
I disagree. Of the many games released in a year and prior year not to mention the high caliber of games that Gears 3 goes up against, #17 on a list of 20 when the list is hundreds of games long is actually pretty high. Also take into account the number of CoD titles and the high profile exclusives like the Halo's. It's nice to even see the latest Forza's on that list (Forza 4 and Horizon). I don't think it's a double-edge sword. I think Sony just doesn't want to release a list simply because they don't want to show that none of their exclusives are being played while multiplats make up the full bulk of titles on the list. It would show that Multiplats > Sony's exclusives.
