Xbox LIVE Activity for week of January 16th: Skyrim muscles in on multiplayer games

Written by: / / No Comments

When looking at the bi-weekly Xbox LIVE Activity charts from your friend and mine, Major Nelson, it’s important to keep in mind that these lists represent the most popular games played while connected to Xbox LIVE, and not necessarily played over Xbox LIVE, like a multiplayer game.

So with this information it shouldn’t be a surprise to find The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim appearing at number three in the list of most popular Xbox LIVE games this past week, behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops, and ahead of FIFA 12 and Battlefield 3.

Or maybe it should surprise you.

(Note: These full global lists of most played Xbox Live games, top-selling XBLA and Xbox Indie Games and most played Games For Windows LIVE are all based on unique users and full versions purchased.)
