Xbox gamers have been logged on onto the Live network for a total over 189 million hours. That the equivalent of almost 8 million days that the users have been online in just 2 weeks.
If only we could make studies as engaging.
I love stats like these, they remind me of the old Bungie Weekly Updates for Halo.
Using VGChartz's 9.4M units sold (and assuming every XBOX One gamer has a connection to relay these statistics to Microsoft) that's about 20 hours per console. Of course, we know not every console is connected, meaning the hours are >20 per connected console. These are not bad numbers at all. Looking good, actually.
I use mine for at least 3 hours everyday.
Xbox master race
I contributed about 40 hours in December so far myself on Live..mostly Forza Horizon 2, COD AW, Halo MCC, and Killer Instinct.
Well, I'm logged in even when I'm just watching TV. Anyone who uses the HDMI in feature for TV is going to boost the stat.
^ By a whole freaking lot. I don't use mine for tv but I do have friends that's history will only say played tv 7hrs ago and their current status is watching TV. I'm sure I have a lot of hours thanks to the twitch app. With all the tourneys in smash, guilty gear xrd, capcom cup and omega sf4 twitch has become a almost daily destination.
Yea I barely play my Xbox One, but the device itself is on 8 hours a day.
Don't get me wrong, I play my Xbox a ton. But on Sunday, it's nfl all day from 1:00pm est until about midnight. I love being able to keep up with what's going on on Xbox while watching TV. If the right friends log in, I'll switch over to a game, while TV runs in snap. If my sports team is losing, sometimes I'll do the same. It's a great feature, so I don't want to sound negative when I say TV is likely a big part of that stat.
MS just provide sales numbers??? ...all these Xbox Live stats are pure distraction. Smart, but deceptive. IMO. ;/
Its an interesting stat, whats the big deal? Their sales have been really good the last couple months, im sure they could show off those numbers no problem, itd just look stupid bragging about sales after losing for so long. Then again, im sure if they did post the sales, people would complain about that too.
Anyone else ever feel a little guilty about how much time they dedicate to gaming? Sometimes I feel like I should be doing something more constructive. Then again between a child, work, wife, and other hobbies (art) it seems I game less and less. I need a lesson in time management.
oh great something else for them to argue over lol it's a great time for games play on
