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"

I should have said console not user you are right. Thanks for the correction. I dont know why people are disagreeing with you for posting a fact word for word...

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

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.
