Battlefield 3 second to Black Ops on Xbox Live's most played list

Call of Duty still on top ahead of MW3's release

Battlefield 3 launched two weeks ago to critical acclaim, but not even the hype of a major FPS game release could topple Call of Duty: Black Ops' reign at the top of Xbox Live's 'Most Played' chart last week.


While Modern Warfare 2 fell to Battlefield 3, Black Ops managed to hold the fort long enough to pass the baton over to Modern Warfare 3.

It's not really too surprising, considering Black Ops has managed to triple the sales of any other game released since January 2010 in the US.

1. Call of Duty: Black Ops
2. Battlefield 3
3. Modern Warfare 2
4. Gears of War 3
5. FIFA 12
6. Halo: Reach
7. Madden NFL 12
8. Batman: Arkham City
