Xbox and GFW Live activity for the week of April 11 – Black Ops still on top

By Brenna Hillier, Thursday, 21 April 2011 06:55 GMT

Guess what the Xbots have been up to this week? That’s right, they played various Call of Duty games until their fingers bled.

Major Nelson‘s weekly poke of the Xbox Live hive mind reveals four Call of Duty games in the top ten, plus Halo: Reach and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Like shooters a bit, do they? Not ‘alf.

In arcade sales, LIMBO is one again number one, but perennial favourites Braid, trials HD and Castle Crashers are hanging grimly on, while FortressCraft dominates the indie charts.

On the PC side, we see an entirely different demographic at work – Grand Theft Auto IV is ruling the roost, while a couple of racers in there, too. BioShock 2, Fallout 3 and Bulletstorm represent the arguably fringe area of the shooter category in the top ten.

Thanks, Eurogamer.
