Default Just how much ass is the 360 kicking?

Posted by sonycowboy on Gaming-Age

Many are known and this whole thing might be old, but i hadn't seen these numbers referenced in the other threads so far.


-Gears of War has sold an astounding 2.7 million copies in just 8 weeks of availability

-the Xbox 360 itself has seen an impressive attach rate of 5.3 titles per console.

-This attach rate is up slightly from the 5.1 games per console sold as confirmed by Microsoft in October

-Xbox Live Arcade has seen more than 20 million games downloaded to date.

-Microsoft says that currently 70 percent of Xbox Live members are downloading content from the Xbox 360's online marketplace.

-The average Xbox Live Gold member has more than 21 users registered as part of his or her Friends List, and that each day two million text, voice, and picture messages are sent between friends over Xbox Live.

-Microsoft is “on track” to reach 13-15 million console units shipped by the end of the fiscal year, as well as double the console's software library, which currently stands at 160 titles.

And for those following the format wars:

-HD DVD add on peripheral will realize an attach rate of 28 movies per device.

-Lion's gate will be offering movies for download through Live this year.

5.3 games per console sold? Sony WILL lose all of their 3rd party exclusives if that keeps up!

I've had the console since launch and it is only now that I am truly starting to enjoy it (bar the excellent XBLA). This year's releases look brilliant and I think it will be a great year for the 360.

360 is amazing. I know several former Sony diehards who switched over and love their 360's to death.

Ive got a list of about 30 I am going to have or already own HD-DVD wise.

MS did such a wonderful job with the gameplan for this gen of console wars. Hit it out of the park!
