We don’t know if you’ve been keeping an eye on the lists of Xbox LIVE Activity that Major Nelson posts weekly/fortnightly/whenever he feels like it, but if you have been, you’ll have noticed an interloper slicing its way to the top of the chart, knocking Call of Duty titles left and right as it works its way up the chain.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is this game, and as unlikely a Chart Hero as we’ve ever seen. Is this the game the prophecies spoke of?

It’s uncertain at the moment whether or not Minecraft will be ‘The One’ to deliver us from the extended reign of Call of Duty, but the game appeared at No. 3 on the chart on launch, and has since made No. 2 its permanent home, ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops and behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Which other games made it to the top places on the Xbox LIVE Activity listings? The full weekly lists of most popular Xbox LIVE games as well as the top-selling Xbox LIVE Arcade and Xbox LIVE Indie games lie in wait below, while a compilation of the most popular Games For Windows LIVE games is also included.
