Doesn't surprise me one bit, I saw over a million concurrent users on Halo 4 last week and I saw over a million concurrent users on BO2 yesterday. It looks as if all the Halo vs COD stuff was pointless, Halo 4 was the best selling Halo ever and BO2 was the best selling COD ever, on their first days respectively anyway.

"And in related news, more males between the ages of 18-45 missed work during that week, than any other week in history."

Does playing a game on Windows8 now count as XBLive?

Honestly asking because I'm not sure. I know, for example, that I have to have an XBox account (meaning, an XBox Live account) in order to download and play games on Win8 and that it logs me in automatically if I'm connected to the Internet when I play. But, if they are now counting the number of people who were playing Angry Birds or the like through the Win8 in addition to 360 gamers, I kind of question the relevancy.

Not to say that Halo 4 and BO2 isn't giving their servers a run for their money.

Is your Windows PC also an XBOX 360? No, as for now (may change with next-gen), XBOX Live and Windows Live are not the same....not even close.

I'm guessing that with NextBox, they'll have Windows 8 PC, Windows phone, Surface etc all linked via the same Live account, through your console. But for now, it's all too different to be fully integrated that way.

That is wrong, actually. Your Windows8 PC when logged in is a part of XBox Live. I was even asked to subscribe to XBox Live Gold when I set up my primary account on my Win8 PC. XBL games are going to be made available on Win8 PCs and tablets, as well.

So, my question still stands.

@Sp1d3ynut: Here's a screenshot to show you what I mean.

I think you need to read what I posted again. As of now, XBOX Live and Windows Live are different...you can't share games across the 2 formats, you can't play MP across the 2 formats (yes, they experimented with Shadowrun...but that doesn't count), etc. As I stated, that is likely to change next gen, but for now, the 2 are separate...yet connected. When MS tracks games being played on XBOX Live, they are tracking the 360 only. Why? Because there's no reason to track PC games, since MS doesn't have MP servers for most PC games, like they do on ALL 360 games. Windows Live, for now, is vastly different from the 360 version, in that it doesn't handle MP for all Windows games. Most PC games...even those with the Windows symbol on the front...have MP that is hosted separately. Very few PC games have MP of any sort via Live....which is why MS made it free on PC.

No, I read what you said and you're wrong. When I signed up, I signed up for Xbox Live, not "Windows Live". Windows Live is the compilation of Windows Essentials and their Web-based services (skydrive, etc.) It has nothing to do with games.

Now, if you meant Games For Windows Live, then that is also outdated information. As of July 2011 that was scrapped and moved to point to Xbox.com and to utilize Xbox.com services. Meaning, Xbox live.

Not to be rude, but I don't think you're the right person to be answering my question.
