An ancient evil has awoken, indeed; he goes by the name Master Chief and he's taking Xbox LIVE by force. Launching on November 6, Halo 4 — which saw the return of Master Chief — earned more than $220 million in the first 24 hours alone. But how addicting has it been in terms of time spent playing?

343 Industries has already revealed that more people played Halo 4 in the first 24 hours than any other Halo launch day in history as it became the most played Xbox LIVE title for the week of November 5, 2012. It beat out Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.
