Not only has Gears of War become the undisputed king of the 360 at the moment breaking numerous records, but it has also been a key factor in an increased usage of Xbox Live. Other releases that shipped alongside Gears of War would have also contributed to the big spike in usage, these included Call of Duty 3, Tony Hawk's Project 8, and Viva Pinata.
Sandvine Incorporated, a network traffic monitoring company released the report. Gears of War has really done a fantastic job of reigniting any waning interest in the 360, especially when all the talk should have been about the PS3 and Wii. It seems that the 360 has a lot of life in it yet, especially with Bungie taking every possible opportunity to tell us something about Halo 3.
