Gears tops XBL charts, but for how much longer?

Gears of War is still the most played Xbox Live game, but will the Halo 3 Beta knock it off?

Figures have been released for the week beginning Feb 12, proving that Gears' popularity hasn't waned any since release last November.

Will anything be able to knock Epic's mighty shooter off the top spot before the Halo 3 beta launches in late spring? Probably not but it's interesting to see demos making the top on a regular basis; both the Def Jam: Icon and Crackdown demos muscle in at fourth and fifth most played Live titles respectively.

The top ten most played Live games for the week of Feb 12 were:

  1. Gears of War
  2. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas
  3. Call Of Duty 3
  4. Def Jam: Icon (Demo)
  5. Crackdown (Demo)
  6. Madden NFL 07
  7. Lost Planet
  8. NBA Street (Demo)
  9. Oblivion
  10. GRAW 2 (Demo)

And just in case you were wondering, yes Halo 2 is still the most played Xbox 1 game over Live.
