Infinity Ward's 1.3 million number is referring to the average number of gamers (not games) that log onto Xbox Live daily to play CoD4
. Apologies for the confusion.
The Xbox Live supremacy mud-slinging gets taken to a new level today with Infinity Ward comparing how many Xbox Live gamers log in to play
games of Call of Duty 4
versus its rival Halo 3
. And let's just say there are bunches.
Speaking to Eurogamer, Infinity Ward producer Mark Rubin revealed that nearly 1.3 million gamers
each and every day via Xbox Live alone. That gigantic number eclipses Halo 3
's gamer base which hovers around the 1 million mark every day. Rubin also wanted to make sure that we understood that the 1.3 million number was just gamers who play on the 360 and that "there's even more on the other platforms [PS3 and PC], but we just don't have the same numbering system. Overall, even without the other consoles, we are beating the competition."
You hear that Halo 3
fanboys? You better start logging more games, gathering up your friends and relatives or claim Xbox Live
defeat to your CoD4
has been high atop the Live leaderboards
for the past few months now and has been getting cocky. And rightfully so.
