UPDATE #6: Our friend "Master Devwi" sent over the following:
"Every week, Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE Director of Programming, posts the Top Ten Games for Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE Arcade, and original Xbox based on unique users.
There are over 12 million people on Xbox LIVE, so it is a big deal to be at the top of the “Top Ten” list. It’s even bigger (and much more rare) for a demo to make the list. That is why this is so huge: this week, the demo for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed holds the #4 spot for Xbox 360 games!
TFU beat out popular games like Gears of War, Madden, Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and more. The three games above it have been in the top three for the last few months, so they are extremely hard to surpass. Still, this is big! We’ll have to see how the actual games does in three weeks…
P.S. Note that two other Star Wars games are in the Top Ten for the original Xbox."
