Is there a reason why this is not shown in the home page but only in the 360 section when topics like this

Seems like a bias on the part of this website.

It shows at it's required destination first, then it shows up on the home page so calm down.

ok so even though this was quoted to the NY Times by MS - it's still MS telling us that the service is growing into double digits, like SNE was telling us that the PS3 was beating all in AU. I still want to see the numbers because that's a whole lot of new people each month.

hey guys i was mearly asking a question , did i say anything about conspiracies? I simply did not know it had to get "hotter" pardon my "newbieness".

TECHNOshamanism3794d ago

well this is definately significant news.

Not sure I understand this. What do they mean by double digits ? Instead of 9 people subscribing to XBL each month, now it's 10 people ?

Also Known As3793d ago (Edited 3793d ago )

Lets say that the service started with 10,000 items of media or users (which is probably what they are reffering to)one month and the next month they had 11,000, that means that the month after that it will be 13,000 (instead of 12,000) and the month after that it will be 17,000 and the next month it will be 25,000 and so on.

or they could be reffering to the actual revenue itself so if they made $10,000 one month, the next month they made a million cause if you add 2 zeros to 10,000 thats what you'd get (yeah i know its obvious).

Or (probably more realistic)

10,000--> 10,010--> 11,000--> 100,000--> 10,000,000-->......
any way you look at it its impressive but eventually it must "top-off".

Wow, it sounds real good, other than the fact that you have no idea what I'm referring to...

Downloads? Revenue? Users? Activity? Demos? (Hell no! They rarely release demos... Flatout is in the UK, why can't we have a demo?! We speak the same language!) Videos? Music?

Xbox Live is pretty sweet, don't get me wrong, but there is always room for improvement.
