TFU Demo Breaks Xbox LIVE Top 10 for 2008

Xbox LIVE Director of Programming, Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, has released the Top 20 Games of 2008.  Coming in at #9 was the demo for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed!  This list is based on the number of unique users who played the game this year.

Xbox 360 Top Live Titles (based on UU’s)

1 Halo 3
2 Call of Duty 4
3 GTA IV
4 Gears of War 2
5 Gears of War
6 CoD: World at War
7 Guitar Hero III
8 Battlefield: Bad Company Demo
9 Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Demo
10 Rock Band

9th place is pretty impressive for a demo!  To come in just under huge franchises like Halo, Call of Duty, GTA, Gears of War, and Guitar Hero is an amazing accomplishment.  Sadly, the retail game did not make the Top 20.

NOTE: The Top 20 is based on Xbox LIVE connectivity. If you played the game on a local hard drive account, you will not be counted.
