Kotaku: Xbox 360 By The Numbers

"With Halo 3 just around the corner, Microsoft has released a boatload of statistics regarding the state of Xbox Live and the 360, perhaps as a way to take a snapshot of before and after the game's gigantic launch week. The stats cover everything from Xbox Live play hours (3.2 billion, or 376,000 years), Xbox Live content downloads (over 290 million), games sold per console (6.3 on average), and just oodles more. The most interesting thing to me is that before this console generation, most of these stats didn't even apply to gaming consoles, so aside from being a big opportunity for Microsoft to pat themselves on their backs, it's an interesting look at how the face of console gaming has changed over the past few years. Hit the jump for all the numbers"

* Xbox 360 continues to lead with the largest library of on-demand high-definition movies and television in the U.S. on-demand market. Twenty-nine movie studios and TV networks continue to provide a growing catalogue of premium high- and standard-definition entertainment content that to date totals 2,800 hours.

* Xbox LIVE Marketplace is now the leading provider of on-demand high-definition content in the U.S., providing more than twice the number of hours as leading cable operators.

In less then a year the Video marketplace more then surpassed its competitors in the video-on demand business.

* XBL arcade is a major factor in choice making when consumers purchase the 360.

* And that the Xbox 360 has shaped the future of gaming being a noob in the industry(ofcource MSFT is no longer a noob).

"According to U.S. NPD data, gamers have bought more software for the Xbox 360 (24.3 million units), than software for PS3 and Wii combined (19.8 million units)."

Software...that's where the money is.

SOFTWARE WINS. Hardware is sold at a loss to sell SOFTWARE.

Wow. I wouldn't have been close were I to try to guess some of these stats. Would be really interesting to read PS3 and Wii's.
