Wizard's Tower is the most popular premium downloadable for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion on Xbox Live, according to developer Bethesda Softworks. (Hrm, this sounded more interesting before we started typing.)

According to a post on the Bethesda blog, "every day, tens of thousands of people STILL play Oblivion and they purchase thousands and thousands of downloadable content - again, every day."

"Yes, even Horse Armor continues to sell daily." So much so, in fact, that it's the ninth most popular item on the list, ahead of the premium version of Fighter's Stronghold, although Bethesda noted that if the list took promotions and other freebies into account, Fighter's Stronghold would actually win.

Presumably Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles would improve their positions too, given their boxed releases and/or bundling.

We've reproduced the list below to put an end to this once and for all.

  1. Wizard's Tower
  2. Thieves' Den
  3. Mehrunes' Razor
  4. Spell Tomes
  5. Vile Lair
  6. The Orrery
  7. Knights of the Nine
  8. Shivering Isles
  9. Horse Armor
  10. Fighter's Stronghold
