Infinity Ward: 1.3 million gamers play CoD4 daily [update]

Update: 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 games of play CoD4 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 conquerors. CoD4 has been high atop the Live leaderboards for the past few months now and has been getting cocky. And rightfully so.

Hey Ghostbuddy, you're living in a dream world. COD 4 has owned Halo 3 atop the Xbox Live most played charts every week since the beginning of the year. New maps, playlists, double XP, etc, hasn't changed anything. Sure it's great for the people that play Halo 3, but it ain't bringing people back from COD4.

I guess COD4 has done pretty well at "fooling" all those people into thinking it's fun. I guess we're all brainwashed.

How are the new COD maps going to hurt people without them? IW is adding new Playlists specifically for the new maps.

As for your theory on people moving over to Rainbow, sorry, didn't happen. Rainbow has already come and gone for most and look at Major Nelson's XBL ranking for the week it came out. It was still lagging behind GHIII! Haha

truthfully; i stopped playing call of duty last december... i always just found it to be to random and not requiring much skill... dont get me wrong its still a fun game; its just not competative enough for me.

"I feel since the right stick is for movement, let it be used as crouch (movement) and the b button as a melee"

right stick is aiming not movement. having to release your thumb for an attack, be it shooting or melee, is not intuitive whatsoever.

have you seen the new Creek map for CoD4? Huge, realistic, debris everywhere and very pretty. i'm loving it.

and as you've seen in the MLG game type topic recently they've made it faster for Halo 3. so somebody wishes Halo 3 were faster. I still say i'd like to have a sprint button as do many others.
