Gamefest 2007: 25M Downloads on XBL

At the keynote off the developer-focused Gamefest 2007 in Seattle, Microsoft's Game Developer Group general manager Chris Satchell has focused on the three cores of Microsoft's gaming business: MSN, Xbox 360 and Games For Windows. Xbox Live is a huge part of converging all three, allowing him to reveal some notable XBL statistics in his opening presentation.

Satchell says there are currently more than 7.1 million Xbox Live users and, more surprisingly, those users have conducted more than 25 million downloads on Xbox 360.

The story is too old to be commented.

Where does it say only XBLA??

OWN4G3, shutup xflop fanboys. Your console is broken, thats why you aint getting many downloads! PSN and PS3 ftw!

I was about to say that number doesn't seem correct.

Thanks for clearing it up Odion.

...but more precisely, it is *purchased* games.
Not demos or freebies or themes...
Just games; that's how they got the attach rate of 6...
XBLA demos alone account for 59 million DL's by itself.
Gotta remember its a professional game *developers* conference.
They're interested in customers, not testers...
25 million is actually a very high number for casual games; it means the average game is selling around 400,000 copies.

The title states that PSN is 5M behind, however i didn't see any mention of this in the story.

Depressed Mode3659d ago

Yikes, someone disagreed when i pointed out a fact?

razer3659d ago (Edited 3659d ago )

The source makes no mention of PSN or what Jack T. said.

Did you just add that yourself to induce maximum flamage?

I believe MS has a lot more than 25mil downloads.

EDIT: Ah, thanks Odion I knew that number seemed very low for total marketplace downloads.

Of course people with ps3s download a lot of things, they have no games to play.
