Battlefield 3 passes Modern Warfare 2 on Xbox Live activity chart

But can't topple Black Ops.

Battlefield 3 moved past Modern Warfare 2 to become the second most played game on Xbox Live last week.

DICE's shooter improved on its third place debut the week prior, but couldn't take down Call of Duty: Black Ops, which clings on at number one. With Modern Warfare 3 now out in the wild it seems unlikely Battlefield will be able to disrupt Call of Duty's perennial domination of the Xbox Live activity chart.

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

  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops
  2. Battlefield 3
  3. Modern Warfare 2
  4. Gears of War 3
  5. FIFA 12
  6. Halo: Reach
  7. Madden NFL 12
  8. Batman: Arkham City
  9. Forza Motorsport 4
  10. GTA IV
  11. Call of Duty 4
  12. NBA 2K12

  14. Halo 3
  15. NHL12
  16. NCAA Football 12
  17. Call of Duty: World at War
  18. Red Dead Redemption
  19. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
  20. Dead Island

Bleak indie platformer Limbo returned to the top of the Xbox Live Arcade chart, followed by Dungeon Defenders and Pinball FX2.

Last week's new release, fun-free arcade throwback BurgerTime World Tour, debuted at 12.
