Minecraft Only Second to MW3 in Most Played Xbox 360 Titles (Week of May 14)

We recently stopped running the weekly top played Xbox 360 titles‘ feature as there wasn’t much movement within the charts. The same games led the charge week in week out.

However, with Minecraft making a big splash in terms of sales, a new challenger has entered the ring. In its’ first week, Minecraft broke into the top five games, coming in at number three in the week of May 7th. Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops took the top spots in that week along with FIFA 12 and Battlefield 3 rounding out the top five, respectively.

Yesterday, Microsoft’s Major Nelson has released the top 20 games* played on Xbox Live for the week of May 14th.

*The activity is measured by uniques users, not hours played. As long as the console is hooked to the net, whatever you’re playing (single-player or multiplayer) counts.

Special Note: Unfortunately, there is no official activity numbers for PSN. PC, on the other hand, is almost impossible to track due to multiple services (Steam, Origin, Battle.net, and others) and independent games.
