Yes, it is another week that the latest Call of Duty entry, Black Ops has topped the activity chart for Xbox LIVE, followed by another game in the same line of games: Modern Warfare 2. According to stats gathered from Xbox LIVE starting the week of November 22, Black Ops continues to occupy many Xbox 360 disc trays as players continue to frag one another against a late 60s backdrop. Interestingly, the fifth position in the list happens to be Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, the first title in the series that offers a multiplayer option.
The top 20 list of activity follows:
01. Call of Duty: Black Ops02. Modern Warfare 203. Halo: Reach04. FIFA Soccer 1105. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood06. Madden NFL 1107. Halo 308. Fallout: New Vegas09. NBA 2K1110. Fable III11.

Always interesting knowing what people are playing the most. No surprise Halo: Reach finds itself in the top three with Halo 3 in seventh place. Unusually enough, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 finds itself woefully in seventeenth place, a shame for such a great online shooter. Even more surprising is the vast quantities of people who are playing titles from long yesteryear: Call of Duty 4, World at War, and even Grand Theft Auto IV find temselves beating Red Dead Redemption, which just released its 'Undead Nightmare' DLC.
Judging by how popular Black Ops was during launch day and the more than $1 billion worth of Modern Warfare 2, it will be quite a long time until either of these games are shaken from their place at the top of the board, and if/when it happens, it might just be another Call of Duty game, if not another long awaited shooter.
