BREAKING NEWS: Halo 3 slipping to 4th Place on XBOX Live

Halo 3 is on its way to unfamiliar territory on the XBOX Live charts. As of this morning, the game that has occupied #1 or #2 on XBOX Live since it's release will soon find itself in fourth place.

1. Gears of War 2 (1000)
2. Call of Duty 4 (585.54015723887)
3. Halo 3 (514.06717148917)
4. CoD: World at War (509.73160364903)

It's also interesting to note that no title has held on to the first place spot with the margin now enjoyed by Gears of War 2. Is it the greatness of GoW2? Well, partly, but the split between COD4 and COD:WaW has certainly helped.

If you look at all versions of a series, more people are playing Gears of War than Call of Duty. With the first Gears of War clocking in at #10 with a 122 share, it holds on to the series top spot by a slim margin.

10. Gears of War (122.65653614535)

For those that have been following our XBOX Live statistics, you'll note that Tom Clancy titles are no longer regulars in the top 10. In fact, Tom Clancy's End War has already dropped to #42 edging out "A Kingdom for Keflings" at #43. Ouch.
