Modern Warfare 2 still most played Live game

In spite of glitches, gamers keep coming back

Major Nelson's Live Activity charts show that Modern Warfare 2 remains the most played game on Xbox Live despite its recent glitches and a bit of a gamer backlash.

Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer hasn't had the best of times recently. First there was the Javelin glitch, where players could essentially turn themselves into suicide bombers. Then when Infinity Ward patched that up, matchmaking problems and an infinite ammo glitch emerged.

Still, it remains the most played game on Xbox Live, ahead of Halo 3, Call of Duty: World at War and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Not that it will calm players suffering from a constant bombardment of grenade launcher rounds and thrown knives but at least it will give Infinity Ward something to smile about while they clamp down on the latest leaks in the game's netcode...
