Xbox Live Sees 1 Billion 'Entertainment Hours' a Month, says Microsoft

More and more people are using the Internet to watch videos, stream film and view other content these days. According to Knowledge Networks, 21 percent of Americans now use game consoles to view TV and movie content, and many people are using Xbox Live for this purpose. Microsoft issued a note today to stress that since its launch in 2001, "Xbox is arguably one of the original Internet TV devices." (Industry, Microsoft, Xbox 360)

Thats only 22 hours a month for each user give or take. I was thinking it would be more.

"There have been 42 million Xbox 360s sold in 35 countries across the globe and there are also now 25 million Xbox Live members who watch 40 hours or more of content on Xbox Live every month."

"40 hours or more"

The Xbox has definitely evolved into a lot more than a gaming machine. I use it for Netflix and more, not just games. But that was Microsoft's plan all along - take over entertainment of living room

i thought people were always complaining about how they just wanted a gaming console. not a blu-ray player or anything else. hmm

The only people who were complaining about wanting Blu Ray
on the 360 were the PS3 trolls.

People will say anything in an argument in order to win.

I read a post by PirateThom in a PSP2 article where he was arguing against Nintendo fans (or 360 fanboys) who were disappointed that PSP2 might not have 3D. PirateThom called 3D a gimmick in that thread. Now go to any 3D threads that include PS3 and you will see PirateThom claiming that 3D is an important feature for immersion in games, and the 360 fanboys are calling it a gimmick.

This site is full of hypocrites.

JasonPC360PS3Wii  +   1853d ago
BS you're not fatter than we are.

We americans are so fat,
when we go to the beach Greenpeace tries to drag our ass back in the water

Americns are so fat,
When they lay down and stand up, their height doesn't change.

Our kids are so fat,
when they run away, we have to use all four sides of the milk carton.
