A month on top for Halo 3

Master Chief leads the fight into Christmas

Master Chief and the Bungie gang have slapped both Call of Duty games down to size it seems, as Halo 3 goes into Christmas on top of the most played Xbox Live games list.

It did seem a few months back that Halo has lost its top spot for good to the incredibly online exploits of Call of Duty 4, which dominated the Live list for many a week. But Live activity for the week of December 15 sees Bungie's masterpiece remain top of the field for the fourth week running.

Call of Duty: World at War is holding out in second, with CoD 4 still in at third. It'll be interesting to see which game holds the load over the heavy gaming holiday period.

Check out the full Live list, thanks to Major Nelson:
