Black Ops II Defeats Halo 4 in the Xbox Live Activity Chart
Written Thursday, November 29, 2012 By Lee Bradley
View author's profile

Call of Duty: Black Ops II has kept Halo 4 off the top spot in the Xbox Live activity charts for week ending November 19th.

Back in the day, when Halo 3 launched in 2007, Master Chief dominated online activity on the console. Fast forward five years and power has shifted to Activision’s all-conquering military shooter. 

And who would have thought that a blocky XBLA world builder would exert such influence?Third in the Xbox Live Activity charts, first in the XBLA charts and widely copied in the Top Indie Games, Minecraft is a runaway success.

How times change.

Halo 3 dominated because it was such a good competitive game. I don't mind that Halo 4 is different, but it's not as good. It'll get better soon hopefully.

@7, pretty much my approach to it. Fair enough some people exploited it. But the skill system was a beautiful system, the thing I wished for the most out of Halo 4 was a skill/ranking system. But nope, I was disappointed. I still enjoy the game, but it will never replace Halo 3 in my eyes.

Considering I just read up on a thread describing a 300k player drop in Halo 4 since its peak, this doesn't exactly come off as surprising to me. I don't think it should be in any case, however, given that Black Ops II was released not soon after. Population change was to be expected.

343 is working on a Competitive Skill Rank (CSR). In the future there will be playlists that support it, similar to the ranked playlists in Halo 3.

Halo 4 has good multiplayer mechanics, but the lag and only 4 playable maps for some gametypes kinda kills it. :/ (Half of the regular Team Slayer maps are pretty... "bad" in my opinion; always some sort of high ground that the enemy team can just camp and win.)

Black Ops II is actually one of the better CODs in quite awhile! (Underpowered perks, overpowered SMGs, and the variety of maps contribute to the faster game pace.) The lag is there, but it's much more tolerable on it compared to Halo 4's.

Makes sense. CoD is a lot easier and more accessible. And its faster/really easy to rack up kills. Some people like that in a game.

As of right now I enjoy Halo Reach multiplayer over 4. I really dislike the maps on 4 and so do a lot of my friends. Maybe if there were better maps more people would play it?

Easy does not mean its bad. I'm just stating my opinion. I gave Black Ops 2 a rent since I loved BO1 and I thought the online was a lot of fun.

... Why would anyone be surprised by this? Being top of the charts doesn't make it a great game, it just makes it the most popular game. Halo4 was a great first game imo from 343, and is my game of the year... bar mine craft....

CoD will stay up there since it's coming to christmas, because every kid will be charging to play it :/

Yeah nothing can touch H3 for me yet. It was nearly barebones to perfection. Everyone was on a level playing field, it was all about teamwork and strategic use of power weapons and equipment. Can't put my finger on it but H4 doesn't have "it" for me, and Reach certainly didnt

Agree with post 17..Halo 3 had "it", Reach was missing it and Halo 4 is trying to find it(MP). Stark contrast in games though..from not really giving a fuck who they are in reach, too gotcha by the balls in Halo 4(SP). Think Halo as we all know and love is gone now Bungies let it go.

I seem to be in the minority here, even though I dont like weapon unlock systems, Im really enjoying Halo 4, more than I did 3 or Reach. Its just been 6 years and the landscape has changed, Gears used to be super huge and now its 15th on the list. There are just many more contenders for MP gaming.

Too bad Black Ops 2 still suffers from all the same problems that the first one did. The lag and horrible hit detection make me insane. Halo 4 is a much better multiplayer game.

@29, there is no such thing as perfection, because perfection is only relevant to the person calling it perfection. I can call a drawing I do a perfection at the time, seeing it as perfect for it's flaws as well as it's general things done right.
You can't say his view isn't perfect, because it is a decent system, so is perfectly possible that his perception is perfect for now.

And by you're logic, nothing is new then, everything is taken from somewhere else, there is no such thing as new in that sense. Everything has been done in some format before.

Halo and Blops multiplayer are like apples and oranges, you really can't compare the two. One thing I noticed when going back to Halo after Blops was how slow the pace and movement of Halo is compared to Blops. I love both though.

For anyone wondering the Live list includes people just connected to xbox live so there internet turned on, so gta 4 may only have 20 people in multiplayer (most likely not) but could have a 100,000+ roaming single player, works with skyrim if the game is on and connected it counts as activity

I like what they did with Halo 4, even though it's not nearly as balanced and as fun as Halo 2 was.

My only complaint is the lag. I rarely encounter it in War Games, but a lot in Co-Op Campaign and Spartan Ops. Unfortunately, that really scares me for what 343 Industries will bring in the future. 2 games already out by them, and both have insane lag at times. Anniversary was simply unplayable in online co-op for me.

Halo 4 MP is far from perfection but it is decent. Once they finish adding in all the necessary gametypes and put out new maps that will help move it along. Most of the maps in this game on MP are just camping in one zone then waiting for the other team to walk over rinse and repeat. This is mostly in Slayer though and Big Team doesn't have this same problem. If they rebalanced some of the weapons and abilities I would be happy but it's still fun when you have all your friends on.

Halo is fucking cancer. Not to mention they're trying to make Halo kind of like CoD, which CoD is like diarrhea.

@#28 Are you a moron? How did "Halo beat Call of Duty in longterm popularity"? CoD 4 got knocked off the charts first....maybe because a new CoD comes out every year you stupid fuck, and Halo got worse every addition. Halo 1>2>3>Reach>4.

(Let's also bring up how MW3 was the largest media release EVER. Not just games, for ALL media. Remove yourself from the gene pool, please.

Not sure why people continue to annually subscription to CoD, they basically jus create new multiplayer maps each year and sell them on a disc. Any day now they will announce their latest map pack for 2013: Modern Warfare 4.

The better game, I would say, is Halo 4 but with the MP lag, it has driven me away from the game. I find CoD MP is less laggy which makes it much more enjoyable.

When Halo 4's servers get better, I will actually play the game much more often.

You do know that the CoD games aren't reinvented every year, right? They just clone it and put a new coat of paint on it. I'm not saying one is better than the other either, I enjoy all games for what they and don't expect more than that. The CoD games are fun but easily forgotten. Flash can't outlast the bang. That's why the games are annually released, not because they're that great.

it's bc halo has been dumbed down so much as time goes on. halo 2 and 3 were so simple with such few powerups that it all came down to true skill, now with load outs and abilities and it being way to easy to 4shot even kids that didnt stand a chance in halo 2 are "good" now

I don't get why so many people are saying they hate Halo 4 MP. After the huge, HUGE, letdown that was Reach, Halo 4 is a return to form IMO. I put it's MP up there with Halo 2 and Halo 3 MP. Sure there are some bugs to be ironed out, but this is 343's first game. I can cut them a bit of slack.

As for BO2 topping the Live Activity Chart, no surprise there. COD has always been an extremely popular game series, and there seems to be no sign of that changing anytime soon.

Call of duty is more realistic in the sense that a shot on the body can kill. Back in halo 3s day you had to get 3 consecutive br bursts to the head. In my opinion it means that more people will pick up and play cod than halo. I prefer halo. But considering someone in the 10th prestige could play worse than someone starting, where in halo if y
ou put a double team of 2 legit rank 50s against 2 new players they stand little chance of geting a kill all match. I still havent started modern warfare 3 yet or halo 4 but im sure i'll enjoy halo more.

lol @ all the Halo 3>Halo 4 posts. I got news for ya, Halo 2>Halo 3/ODST/Reach/Anniversary/4. :O Oh no he didn't! Seriously....Halo 3 is the best Halo on the 360, but the staple of the franchise is and always will be Halo 2. Period.

I'm also surprised to see so many people defending Black Ops 2. Not that I don't like the game, but because that's the usual trend this time of year. I personally love Black Ops 2, but I'm not playing it since they launched the game with my favorite playlist and then took it away without warning (Nuketown 24/7). I don't know what it is about that map, but I can't get enough of it.

I'm, in that bracket & the massive love I had for CoD2 & 4 has waned with each iteration (except zombies!).

Maybe haters whose histories are full of CoD games are in a good postion to pass judgment on them?

Or maybe we are just too jaded & expect too much?

Is this a surpris? Anyone that played Halo 4 and has played any of recent CoD games knows, that they borrowed heavily from it's online aspect. Killstreaks, perks and other similiraties are all taken straight from CoD. Probably the main reason why I enjoy it so much now more than ever, but still not good enough to beat CoD in my eyes.

@43, read the post and think for a moment before you comment, moron.

Halo 3 beat CoD4 in long-term popularity on the xbox 360. So what if there where other titles released? It still stands that Halo3 lasted Longer then CoD4. It shows allot of the fact that CoD is simply the cool kids game that everyone moves onto the new one forgetting the later much faster then older games :)
CoD hasn't lasted the test of time where Halo did in that generation 5 years ago, or at least not as well. :) Hell, Halo 2 was still played allot when the servers where shut down. Still a shame about that, but oh well, we should be seeing Halo3 HD in a few years, if not a year, nicely re-textured, and hopefully full multiplater.

Do people actually believe posting in this comment section is going to sway someone point of view? I see the "cool" kids bashing on CoD because that seems to be the "popular" thing to do?? I see the "badasses" hating on Halo because their CoD is just "superiorz" to Halo.

Who the hell cares? Play your games, have your fun, and move along to the next game or new itteration of your favorite game(s).

Just gotta say Forza Horizon what a fail train of a game, I thought it was fun for the 5mins then got bored cause of the "Small Free Roam map". No lasting appeal with Horizon at all back to Forza 4 it is.

@70 That's because MW2 was and still is a "GOOD" game. I've got nothing against BF3 I actually have the PC version, I just prefer the multiplayer on MW2.

Black Ops 2 is a terrible game and so is the first. Modern Warfare is way better. Halo 4 sucks balls and doesn't come close to Halo 2 or 3.

I enjoy the BO2 MP a lot, I feel like they really succeeded compared to BO1 and MW3. I haven't got halo 4 as I don't have money. Perhaps I'll pick it up later it seems quite good.

Of course that's what i'm saying, the is no such thing as perfection in anyones eyes, there is nothing original getting made in the games industry or film industry, most of the multiplayer content has been stolen from cod, see halo 4, crysis 2, medal of honor, battlefield, warface, far cry 2/3 and homefront, to name a few.

And all of the alliteration used in your last paragraph was pathetic,

Please go and p,p,p,p,p,p pick up a penguin you cunt...

Well, seems someone learned a couple new bad words. Here's a hint though, no one under the age of 16 says those in a derogatory (I doubt you'll understand that word) fashion.

These arguments remind me of IGN's attempt to start a flame war by having gamer vote on youtube over three characteristics: graphics, campaign, and multiplayer.

Both games have a great campaigns. Halo 4 starts a whole new trilogy with a story that no one know where it will lead up to. Black Ops 2 features a multiple choice scenario campaign, different choices can lead up to different consequences.

The best graphics have to be Halo 4. Compared to Halo: Reach, Halo 4 might have taken the same engine to it greatest to make Halo 4 realistic during the cutscenes and gameplay.
Black Ops 2 the engine has aged, the sweat on the faces of the characters look too glossy and some of the colors don't really seem to come out right.

The multiplayers are good in both games to me. Both with there unique gametypes and weapons.

I just wish that in Halo 4 Grifball becomes a multiplayer gametype soon and maybe bring back VIP from Halo 3 and more gametypes. For Black Ops 2 I'd wish for MW3's scorestreak/killstreak systems, assault or support or ...

@71, things haven't been taken from CoD, CoD wasn't the first to do any of what it did, it took things from other games, altered them slightly ect.
If I searched enough, I could probably find a version of every mechanic in the game somewhere else.

Battlefield took some things from CoD to make it's self more mainstream, Medal Of Honor needed updating and took influence completely from CoD, Halo4 took influence's from CoD/Battle field to put together a more accessible halo game, did a decent job for a first game at keeping it noticeably separate. Can't comment on the others, I've avoided them quite a bit, but what you just said, is like saying every survival game mode on a game is a copy of horde for gears of war, when there have been MANY games before that with things in play like that.

I have issues with spelling and grammar, dyslexia, we're not all perfect.

If you're going to act like a child after saying something, do everyone a favor, go and do that to someone in person, see how quickly you end up with a fist round the side of your head.

Can't say anything about Halo saga, never got into it. But for Black Ops 2. I posted my issue/complaint on there official forum.

1. Game session is no longer available (from Game Invite, since release date)

Never had this problem w/ previous COD titles. My friend and I both have CenturyLink, NAT:Open. He pays for 25mbps a month, I pay for 10mbps a month internet speed. Both restarted 360 elite & modem; unplug cables, count to 30secs, etc. Even downloaded the patch update, didn't fix anything. Other error msg I received but not often:

2. Interruption Connection (kicked from match)

Anyone else having similar issues or know a possible solution?

@65 You dense fuck, CoD 4 got bumped down BECAUSE of the fact a new CoD comes out every year and becomes the "standard" to play to keep up with the times. If they came out more sparingly like Halo, CoD 4 would still be up there. I'm not defending CoD as a series, once a year is WAY TOO frequent. But I will defend the great game that is CoD 4.

Wow i rented black ops to see how it was. And it was the worst waste of 2 dolers ive ever spent.the graffics suck dick so bad. The game goes from 2015 or watever year and then jumps to 1985 or w e it is and then back to he future again. The best part is wen the game goes from cod to gost recon to comand and conqure. Wtf were they hinkin when they made this game. Online everyone camps in corners wit over powered pistols and sniper rlfe shotguns. Zombiesis theonly god thing about the game. And this shyt beatin halo 4 how the fuck!?

online activity really doesn't mean a thing but I prefer Halo over cod just cause both campaign and multiplayer is good I never played a cod campaign since cod 3 cause if I'm gonna play a modern shooter I want it to be in a real war not a made up one that's why futuristic games are better Black ops 2 went the ghost recon way and it doesn't feel like anything different the perks is less game changing that's one thing I like about black ops 2 but Halo is too fun and different each game cod is the samething every match

It's sad to see no Max Payne 3 on the list, IMO it's a blast online and no one plays online and I rape at the multiplayer. Yes it needed work at release but what game dosen't, and the online play/flow has gotten better.
Can't wait till GTAV come out and shuts down this whole CoD vs. Halo vs. BF vs. MoH FPS Fanboy wars.
As far as CoD, I still enjoy World at War and MW1 and 2, and with Halo part 3 and Halo 2, the best Halo IMO.

BlOps 2 is far from being a good game. Lag/Hit detection/Spawns are god awful. I foresee many more updates in the future for this title.
