Gears of War tops Halo 2 on XBL

It’s finally happened… There’s a shooter that was able to dethrone Halo 2 as the most played Xbox Live game – even if only for a weekend.

It’s been on everyone’s minds, but no one has had the heart to admit it: Gears of War ROCKS! As proof of it’s rocking, it has done what was seemingly impossible – knock Halo 2 off the top of the Xbox Live charts. Don’t get the wrong idea here, it’s still the number one played Xbox game, but on the 360 front, GoW has the number one spot. Here’s some of the numbers via Major Nelson:
