I wonder how many of these were using their 2 month free trials. I'd have been in those #'s if my modem wasn't a POS. Just another week or so and I'll have my new one........

Plus add the other really great XBL game comming this month (Counter-Strike) to what we already have and wow there is a chance that we will top these stats.

I think majority of the CS players will be gamers that enjoyed the PC version.

I think R6 is superior in everyway.
