Microsoft has offered up further proof, should any be needed, of Call of Duty's total domination of Xbox Live.

Both Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2 are both camped out at the top of last week's Xbox Live activity chart, seeing off stiff competition from the likes of Gears of War 3, FIFA 12 and Forza 4.

It's a year since Black Ops was released and two since Modern Warfare 2. People are still playing World at War and the original Modern Warfare as well, at 19 and 12 respectively.

Maybe Battlefield 3 can shake things up next week.
