Tuesday Was Xbox Live's Busiest Day Ever -- Can You Guess Why?

Xbox Live took a beating on Tuesday. One might surmise a major multiplayer game was released on Tuesday and people wanted to play it. Oh, right. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. As it turns out, the launch of Activision and Infinity Ward's shooter sent so many people online that it resulted in the biggest day ever for Xbox Live yet, with more than two million gamers playing simultaneously.

"Tuesday was the biggest day we've ever seen on Live," said Dennis Durkin, COO of Microsoft's interactive entertainment business during a financial presentation the BMO Capital Markets "Digital Entertainment Conference" in New York this afternoon.

In the run up to Modern Warfare 2's launch, Microsoft prepared for an onslaught of active users.

"[It's a] landmark event for our industry," said Durkin.
