Skyrim passes Battlefield 3 on Xbox Live chart

But Call of Duty rules all.

More people logged on to Xbox Live to play The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim last week than they did Battlefield 3, Microsoft has revealed.

However, Bethesda's gargantuan RPG couldn't put a dent in Call of Duty's unrelenting domination, with Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops finishing first and second respectively.

New releases Saints Row: The Third, Assassin's Creed: Revelations and Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary came in at 10th, 11th and 13th.

Here's the full Xbox Live Activity top 20, as seen on Major Nelson's blog:

  1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops
  3. Skyrim
  4. Battlefield 3
  5. FIFA 12
  6. Modern Warfare 2
  7. Halo: Reach
  8. Gears of War 3
  9. Madden NFL 12
  10. Saints Row: The Third
  11. Assassin's Creed Revelations
  12. GTA IV
  13. Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary
  14. Forza Motorsport 4
  15. Batman: Arkham City
  16. NBA 2K12
  17. Halo 3
  18. FIFA Soccer 11
  19. NHL12
  20. Call of Duty 4

Over on the Xbox Live Arcade chart, Pinball FX2 came out on top, followed by Super Meat Boy and Marvel vs Capcom 2. There were no new entries in the top 20, thanks no doubt to the slew of Black Friday savings on old content up for grabs.

The full chart looked rather like this:

  1. Pinball FX2
  2. Super Meat Boy
  3. Marvel vs. Capcom 2
  4. Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012
  5. Bejeweled 2
  6. Bejeweled Blitz Live
  7. Crazy Taxi
  8. Stacking
