According to stats released today by Microsoft, gamers spend more than 40 hours a month on Xbox Live. If you multiply that by the number of Live users (around 25 Million), it adds up to over a billion man-hours a month spent shooting people in the face (and watching movies through Netflix) on Xbox. Amazing!
Also, consider these fact-oids:
- In the last year alone there has been a 157 percent increase in the time spent watching movies and television on Xbox.
- 42 percent of Xbox LIVE Gold members in the US are watching an average of an hour of television and movies on their Xbox, every single day or more than 30 hours of digitally distributed television and movies a month.
- Access to Xbox LIVE is expanding from 26 countries to 35 this November.
That first stat is pretty interesting: A huge increase in time spent watching movies and TV on Xbox. Have you found this to be true? Are you or your Xbox-having-friends watching more movies on Xbox lately? I know I have been.
