Modern Warfare 2 dominates Xbox Live…for now

Xbox Live’s Major Nelson has released the week’s most actively played Xbox Live titles, and as you’d guess, Infinity Ward’s stupidly popular shooter Modern Warfare 2 sits atop the leaderboard.

Normally, this wouldn’t be news, but today it is because this week is likely to be the last where it sits atop the list. Why’s that? Bungie’s Halo: Reach hits shelves on Tuesday worldwide, and if that game doesn’t unseat Modern Warfare 2, I’ll be seriously surprised.

Anyway, here’s Xbox Live’s top 20 games for the week of August 30:
