Xbox Live’s Director of programming Larry Hyrb, more commonly known as Major Nelson, announced the past week’s most played Xbox Live games today via his official blog.

Halo 3 fragged its way back to the top, giving Call of Duty: World at War, the backsmack dropping it to number two for the week, in the Xbox 360 category.‚  The influx of Halo activity can most likey be attributed to the March 3rd release of Halo Wars, with the LE containing the exclusive Mythic Map Pack

Halo 3 has remained at or near the summit as Xbox Lives most played games since the day it was released almost two years ago!‚  Others have come and gone, but Bungie’s incredible ability to continually offer new and exciting content has kept the fans coming back.‚  How does 1 billion games played sound? Yeah, thought so.

Watchmen: The End is Nigh took the top spot for Arcade titles, Halo 2 in the original Xbox department, and RC-AirSim led the way in Community Games.

Xbox 360 and original Xbox figures are based on unique users while Arcade and Community games are figured by full versions purchased.

I’d like to think I tipped Halo over the top this weekend with my hours and hours of Grifball played earning me double XP.

The next time someone says “Halo 3? People still play that game?” Well, you’ll know what to say.
