No major activity just yet. Note that three of the top four games (duh: COD4, Halo 3, Gears) constitute the perennial holy trinity of ultra-mega-stupid popular multiplayer Xbox games. And if circumstances were to level back out per usual, you can bet Gears would slide back into the top three in due time.
But wait! You may remember a little sleeper called Gears of War 2 will be in stores in a mere three of your Earth days. Also notice that "World at War Beta" is creeping its way up the list; that's World at War as in Call of Duty the Fifth. That game's probably going to sell, too (you heard it here first).
Those two games are serious multiplayer contenders. What's going to happen to that list by the end of next week? How many Gears players will jump to Gears 2? Who's going to ditch their prestige level 8 to reup in World at War? Can Xbox Live actually handle all this strain? After the problems with Live downtime around the holidays last year--and considering the new dashboard is rolling out in a matter of a couple weeks--I'll be curious to see if Fortress Live remains sound through the end of the year.
What are you multiplayer fiends most looking forward to this month? I didn't include Resistance 2 in this Live-focused list, but that's obviously a pretty big deal on the multiplayer side too.
UPDATE: Scooper reminded me that Left 4 Dead is hitting the 360 later this month too. The hits just don't quit!
