    More people are playing Minecraft on XBLA than MW3

    More people are playing Minecraft on Xbox Live Arcade than Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 or FIFA 13.

    Microsoft Live activity chart for the week of 15th October shows Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition at the top for the first time, ahead of gargantuan retail games Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and FIFA 13. Call of Duty games have been at the top of the chart for much of the past four years.


    It is yet another milestone for Minecraft. In early October developer 4J Studios revealed it had sold over four million copies. It is the best-selling XBLA game ever.


    Other games Minecraft is more popular than on XBLA: Call of Duty: Black Ops, Borderlands 2, Halo: Reach, Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.


    Microsoft's Live Activity chart is based on unique users - that is, game playing while connected to Xbox Live.


    1. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
    2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
    3. EA Sports FIFA Soccer 13
    4. Call of Duty: Black Ops
    5. Borderlands 2
    6. Halo: Reach
    7. Battlefield 3
    8. Modern Warfare 2
    9. Madden NFL 13
    10. NBA 2K13
    11. Happy Wars
    12. Skyrim
    13. Gears of War 3
    14. RESIDENT EVIL 6
    15. GTA IV
    16. FIFA 12
    17. Forza Motorsport 4
    18. Dishonored
    19. EA SPORTS NHL13
    20. Halo 3
    As you'd expect, Minecraft is the top Arcade title, ahead of The Walking Dead, Sonic Adventure 2 and Trials Evolution.

    I imagine that by Christmas time, there will be about 5 million people playing Minecraft on Xbox 360. It's a freakin' craze.

    Trying to get my girlfriend into this as I thought it'd be fun to play together. She had the nerve to say "the graphics aren't very good" and gave me a weird face when I tried to justify the art style

    This is cool though, I read that the XBLA got a massive update as well

    You sound like DICe when they justify the blue tint on everything in BF3.

    Not really, I don't fancy that blue tint on BF3. But I love Minecraft's art-style

    I do not find it surprising really. Minecraft is not rated mature, and the game is a fraction of the price.

    However, I am surprised to see Halo 3 in the top 20

    Same here, a game that old being in the top 20 is quite surprising.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    Well, if I used that logic then I would expect to see Assassins Creed in the top 20

    AFAIK this is the first time XBLA has led the LIVE chart. Looking at it like this, I bet more people are playing online in Minecraft than ANY console game online. Hard to believe it does so well without servers too.

    It looks like MC has gotten very popular on 360.
