Publish date:

The biggest franchise in gaming history has been beaten out for unique users on Xbox Live by indie hit Minecraft.

After reigning for nearly a year, Modern Warfare 3 has finally been knocked from the number one spot according to Xbox Live's Major Nelson.

This may not last for long, as Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is due out November 13, but it is nontheless suprising to see a console port of an indie game beat out all AAA competition for the top spot.

Bested games include Fifa 13, Borderlands 2, Madden 13, and Halo Reach.
