Despite a huge release for the mostly well-received Battlefield 3, it wasn’t the most played game on Xbox Live during its first week. In fact, no new game was. The top games by player count were Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Yep, people are still playing both of those. Some aren’t even sure which one it is they’re playing, they just know they’re “pwning noobs.”
This isn’t a total surprise. Even with Gears of War 3, it only managed to knock off one of the games and has since fallen back down to fourth. Is there no end to the Call of Duty juggernaut? Unless Modern Warfare 3 somehow completely bombs, which it won’t, or has some major defect, which it also won’t, I have a feeling that only Call of Duty will manage to beat Call of Duty.
