The battle between Call of Duty and Minecraft on Xbox LIVE has been fascinating to watch and the rise and rise of the Xbox 360 version of Mojang’s original PC title is a wonderful story. The fact that a custom-created edition of an indie game can, on a weekly basis, challenge the industry’s biggest blockbuster (and outstrip previous iterations of that franchise) is incredible.

The war rages on in this past week’s Xbox LIVE Activity chart, however, as Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition hold flying patterns at the top while remaining the most played games on the service.

There’s a bit of a change in the top-selling list of Xbox LIVE Arcade games and some shuffling in the most played chart, but the listings are more or less the same as a few weeks ago – still makes for interesting reading. Here are the latest Xbox LIVE Activity charts in full:
