DarkZero: Major Nelson has just updated with his weekly listing of top games played by users connected to Xbox Live. In a change from recent activity the listing reveals that for this week at least Halo 3 has reclaimed top spot from Call of Duty 4.
LIES!!!!!! good for them, they will all come back the COD4 they always do...
Negative. Activision/Infinity Ward is sitting on a goldmine (cod4) and made substantial profit from the new map packs. Why they aren't releasing new maps is just plain stupid.
DUH...i always choose my game according to trends, ill drop cod 4 and go back halo DUH....
<--- traded in Halo 3 after i beat the campaign and found that the multiplayer was slow and full of 10 yr olds. did i mention shotty snipers every other map?
In about 10 minutes call of duty 4 will be back on top
There are those who said this day would never come, what are they to say now? Seriously though, it was only a matter of time Halo 3 would reclaim the number 1 spot, also Halo 2 is still number 1 on the original Xbox almost 4 years later. I expect Gears 2 to take the number 1 Xbox 360 spot when it's released though.
I bet this is MS conspiracy.
There are those who said this day would never come, what are they to say now? ah the good ol days of waiting for Halo 2. The reason that it's still on top is because Halo 2 is one of the only good Xbox games left with the servers still running. Anyway the time is coming for The Cole Train to make his return ;) That is untill Gears 2 comes out.
Also of course Halo 2 is still number 1, it was one of the last great Xbox games, at least the last great one with multiplayer. They'll enjoy this victory this week but next week, it is back to the same.
.It's been a while Master Chief... even I predicted this...Halo online is a drug.
Why does everyone like Cole in gears so much, is it because most guys playing gears wish they were big black men? Lol... I play with carmine because he looks like a robot, and robots are cool. Also he can come back from the dead, apparently. On topic: Halo 3 back on top, what a disgrace! I'm actually back to gears now, got sick of fps's (read cod4) and all the vids of GeoW2 make me wanna play it.
It's Unreal for me, but I can't miss those double xp weekends halo has. Not because of the xp, they simply have better game typse (griffball). I loose interest in COD4 when everybody starts camping, but every game has those little nik naks I guess.
the epicness of halo 2... halo 3 really deserves the number 1 spot out of any shooter, simply because of the map editor, theater mode, custom games, the ability to fileshare all that was just mentioned, and superior competitive matchmaking capabilities. 3/4's of all that i just mentioned is nopt present in any shooter on the 360 right now, and even on the ps3, unless you get some sorta mod or what not.
Seriosly your material is getting old. Try something new please. T-r-y. (good job mod ;) )
interesting, Mods taking action in the Open zone, Queefyb next pls? :D
what atrocious words you need to write on the Open Zone to get your post deleted?! man i didn't see what he wrote!!! now i'm dying of curiosity!!!!
Overrated my @ss...
Halo 3 wins for one week, and he bashes it. Whats your most played online game? Its gonna be resistance 2 because insomniac is trying to fit the entire PSN into a 30-30 match. By your logic, anyone playing resistance or warhawk is bored with content. OUCH! would not want to own a ps3 in that case bacause thats about all you got. ROFL!
same can be said about Halo and the 360. ROFL.
Of course not.I prefer playing games on my PS3,not boiling water on a 360.By the way I made some more ramen noodles on a 360 for the xbots.You want some? Shrimp flavor.
Yoshida, that was funny. As for pwnsauce...the list would devistate you.
@AlphaGamer Well unlike Sony,Microsoft will give a faulty product,no toy,and any satisfaction whatsoever.You would have better luck with a Wii,little boy @Giant Enemy Crab One burger coming up.I also got some games on this thing.I tried to make burgers on the 360 but they kept burning badly.Can you imagine that?The only thing the 360 does and it does'nt even do it right.All right here you go,a burger (not burned) and a copy of MGS4(one disc edition) @Rekjyyl What a glorious ten years its gonna be.As for the year 2016,by then Microsoft will pull out of the console war and the grilling war due to crappy products.Microsoft is faulty.Remember bots,inferior products from inferior minds.Keep on grilling with the xbutt 720 NOW WITH TWO BRICKS! Muahahahaha By the way I ain't Queefy.He and I are as different as day or night.
Lord Yoshida = QueefyB. No, I don't want any noodles but can you grill me up a burger on your PS3 remember I want the burger this year not in 2010. @5.6: I LOL'd! +bub @5.7: I was getting a suspicion those 2 were connected. I bet Yoshida is the giver, Queefy seems like a taker. +bub
Not gonna happen. Make it 2016. Your burger has a ten year plan and the steak is downgraded out. Blame lazy devs for that.
no my fellow 360ian brother yoshida is gay and QueefyB is his lover INFIDELS ! Being gay is forbidden ! u will all burn in hell with satan and his friends " SONY " ! i saw a vid of yoshida making out with QueefyB EWW ! INFIDELS ! X360 FTW MICROSOFT FTW
Yoshida, I want a real meal. Not a burger with a cheap gimmicky toy thrown in. I can go to Mcdonalds for that.
Mcdonalds is gay !Mcdonalds is gay !Mcdonalds is gay !Mcdonalds is gay !Mcdonalds is gay !Mcdonalds is gay !Mcdonalds is gay !Mcdonalds is gay !Mcdonalds is gay !Mcdonalds is gay !Mcdonalds is gay ! INFIDELS ! X360 FTW
I know you u r pissed off because in two years u got just one game to watch for ur PS3, but no worries, check out what Sony announced in recent E3 for the PS3: Now u can grill while u r watching MGS4. Party on with that:
you forgot the egg fryer while playing halo
Well 360 owners play mostly good games, while u guys r just grillin´, waitin´ and watchin´. Guess that´s the famous 4D.
ooouuuwwwwe!! LOOKS like pwnsause just got a good tast of his own sause
Halo 3 wins for one week, and he bashes it. -people still play halo? Whats your most played online game? Its gonna be resistance 2 because insomniac is trying to fit the entire PSN into a 30-30 match. -Entire huh? wow funny... By your logic, anyone playing resistance or warhawk is bored with content. OUCH! -U cant get Bored of War just FPS's. - and OUCH? ..touch your RROD'ing Xbox? they get hot watch out. If Xbox had a game as Close to Warhawk the FPS's like Halo or Cod would be a barren as a Xboxer's bed on Prom night. want proof? try this http://www.youtube.com/watc... or this race anyone? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
hey at least we eat healthy ROFL not like your egg fryer, the grease on your egg fryer is always there ROFL @BLUR MY sause tastes so good, why shouldnt i have a taste of my own sause.
Nice vids you found there
Infidels ! Halo 3 is the best game ever made ! it was made for the loyal Xbox360ians ! ps2.5 is the work of satan ! INFIDELS ! sony droids r infidels ! u will die and burn in hell ! Yoshida is a child molester ! INFIDEL ! X360 FTW !
360 Jihad baby!! The king is dead!
jihad are you a taliban muslim or a brainwashed excorcist
Are just mad because there isn't 10 games to play online for the PS3. Halo3 and Cod4 will trade 1st place until Gears 2 hits then they will trade 2nd place 360 has the best online games for a console
I can't agree to that given I never even tried Warhawk, but I think there are some were forgetting, just can't think of them at the moment. My only gripe or annoyance is when someone says the ps3 has no lag. That really confuses me as I've noticed no such thing. There's always been lag in either my 360 games or ps3 even with a good internet service. Not alot, but there's just no such thing as "lag free" in my own experience.
Maybe you should upgrade your internet? I have a 100mbit connection and I've never encountered lag on psn, on Live however I actually have. Granted, I live in Europe and most people who play on live are from the US, but come on!
Firstly, as you said, yes, latency increases over distance. If you're playing with people halfway across the world, it is ALWAYS noticeable. Secondly, 100 megabits? Do you have any idea how much service like that costs in North America? I can safely host a 16 player game with ~700kilobits upload, after about 1megabit you have excess speed to use for other things outside of gaming, unless you're trying to host some huge 40 player server yourself, and then, your hardware likely wouldn't have the processing power to do so. My line speed is about 7megabits down and 700kilobits up, but my latency is about 20ms. You can have a terabit line and it doesn't mean anything for gaming if you have a latency of 70ms. For instance, making a water pipe bigger when it was already able to deliver the correct amount of water will give you absolutely no benefit.
Why don't they keep the stats on traded xboxes at gamestop? or reveal the failure rate hmmmm? I'm playing halo3 was fun a very long time ago but don't you guys think you should bring your halo skills into resistance2 later? Halo will never change but r2 is a risktaker! cmon, give it a shot. It won't dissapoint like the most played out game on live. don't worry, no need to subcribe to psn.
ive personally stopped playing cod 4 and started playing halo 3 again, cod 4 is getting a little old now
lol. ps3 guys are just jelous there isnt any excluive game on their console which can rival cod4.(there really isnt, cause mgo sucks)
Speaks as if COD4 itself was exclusive to the 360. BTW, those jealous "PS3 guys" are over at the open zone, where you should take your waste of internet space.
im talking about ps3 games here. there isnt one on ps3 to compete with cod4.... its pretty sad ps3s best game is a multiplat.
Though the online is horrid. 3 registrations, long waiting, and the recent update mess. But anyhow, who cares. There's so many titles coming up, Cod 4 and Halo 3 will be pretty much forgotten... at least for awhile.
Well 360's "best" game was also a multiplatform game til just now! Took rather long for Halo 3, the OMGLOLBestGameInTheWorldIMGOIN GTOCUM, to actually hit #1.
your making it sound like COD4 was an exclusive to the 360
you mean take #1 AGAIN.
why they disagreed with Warhawk being better multiplayer action than COD4? Did those who disagree even TRY warhawk?
I actually got back onto CoD4 multiplayer this week for the first time in MONTHS. Nice to see GeoW still being played a lot. November 7th, Gears 2 will reign supreme
i tried getting into it but it seems like your cheating having to hold down the left trigger for the perfect shot is just lazy to me, so i just dont play it at all
but 80% of those games u would never buy. 10% are games u would get bored of with in a week. and 50% are multiplatform games.
So 50% much better games than Ps3. Unfortunately same cant be said for ps3 since it gets 2 games a year.
thats funny that u bring that up considering the only game 360 owners can look forward to any time soon is gears of war 2. SONY has way better exclusives. just go download that too human demo.... you'll know what im talking about. o and have fun playing the new ninja giden..... o wait that game sucks. trust me man i got both consoles and i know that most games on 360 suck. all i use it for is gears.
I did download it and I had fun, remember what fun was before you were watching 90 minute cutscenes in MGS4, and we have quite a few exclusives besides Gears of War 2 just look at Fable 2, Too human, Banjo, Mass Effect 2, etc. Now what are these thousands of PS3 exclusives people are talking about Resistence 2 (Our equal of halo but still I liked the first one), Little big planet, Killzone 2(I personally think it looks horible just un-original and the first one sucked), Infamous (Which isn't coming out till spring 09), and god of war 3 (20 second trailer yay!). Oh my god you have one more exclusive how amazing and we still don't know about the new halo game which if it's anything like the other ones it's going to sell like crazy. Don't act like the PS3 is going to become king all of a sudden what they are doing is playing catch up and with no MGS4 to boost things the PS3 is going to return to a slow pace.
@lufton. Why dint you include their top most game which has been in number one position on the list on all ps3 fans since E3 05 who promised doomsday for 360 when it will launch, FFXIII? Oh, i forgot they lost that exclusive. Back to Borezone2 with AI of shop window manequins.
These graphs aren't very accurate. They only track the ip address and not the guests playing. As most of you know, Halo 3 always has guests playing and COD4 doesn't. The fact is that at any given time, Halo 3 usually beats COD4 3 to 1 on players. That's what counts. Halo 3 has always been number 1.
Try to tell that to PS3 fanbois. Most of them have never even played the game.
Have to do with a 360 news piece? Last I checked this is Live top online game news.
Well it has to do with them constantly throwing around that COD4 is more popular than Halo 3 when they clearly don't know the real numbers.
Most of us HAVE played the game. I prefer Call of Duty 4. I actually prefer RFOM online over anything...but that's just me. Warhawk is amazing too...and Metal Gear Solid.
If anything that's a really bad sign. Nothing good has come out in quite awhile. And it's not like PC gaming with infinite customization and depth to keep you playing.... I don't know how you consolites can stand that stuff for more than a month.
you obviously havent played Halo3 then. it has infinite customization in the forge mode, you can even create your own powerups
Just proves how strong the Halo games are - probably my fav game of the last year maybe even 2. COD4 was good but you alwasy go back to Halo when you are done with the new stuff.... hence the leap back to number 1.
I played Halo 3 for exactly 3 weeks and then traded it in for Call of Duty 4. So, no, not everyone "always" goes back to Halo 3.
