Top 2007 Xbox Live Games Show Retro Success

Xbox Live director 'Major Nelson' has posted the top Xbox Live games for 2007 -- including top played multiplayer titles, and top purchased Xbox Live Arcade games -- showing a predictable dominance of Halo 3, and a clear preference from XBLA shoppers for classic over new titles.

The list includes statistics for both Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles, and has Halo 3 and Halo 2 leading both categories, followed by Gears of War, and the more recent Call of Duty 4 taking a surprising lead considering its end of year release.

Turning to Xbox Live Arcade sales data, Konami's arcade port TMNT 1989 Arcade leads all others, followed by Worms and another Konami release -- its PlayStation port Castlevania: SOTN.
