Xbox 360 Most Popular Games Of 2011

Microsoft has revealed the top 20 most popular games played on the Xbox 360 in 2011 based on numbers of unique users logged into Xbox LIVE (Silver and Gold members). Note that this gives a different result to the total playtime for a particular game, which has not been disclosed here. Unsurprisingly, the Call of Duty series dominates the chart, but what is sure to irk CoD detractors, but make fans very happy, is that a massive five of those positions are taken up by CoD – that's 25% of the rankings. Even CoD4: Modern Warfare which was released way back in 2007 sits at a very respectable number 14. However, top games Battlefield 3 and Skyrim did very well nonetheless, sitting at five and six respectively, with only Halo beating them at number 4. Can you guess which CoD game hit the top spot before looking at the chart?

Call Of Duty 4 Cover Art Revealed

Normally, the release of a game's cover art is not front page worthy. However, there's something special about this cover art: Infinity Ward did not design it. Infinity Ward instead left the task of designing (and voting on) a Call of Duty 4 cover to the gaming community. And so, the product of this collaboration is shown below. All versions of the game (PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, PC, etc) have the same cover art. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is currently on track for a November 5th release.
