Major Nelson's latest battle report comes as a bit of a surprise as Halo 3 was the most-played retail game of last week.

However, Infinity Wa...

Also, sponsored by GAME Alright, perhaps "debate" is a somewhat enthusiastic label for a question none of us have ever seriously considered. Which is more worthy of a prestigious award -- the cratered theater of war in Activision's Call of Duty 4, or the smiling planetoids of Super Mario Galaxy? ...

And after some quick number crunching, we learn that (on the Xbox 360 alone) over 10 million unique players have logged onto Xbox Live to game it up on CoD4 since launch. Not too shab.
