January: Xbox Live's "biggest month ever" (CVG 13/2/09)

Post by VampiricPadraig on Fri Feb 13, 2009 10:53 am

Xbox Live had its "biggest month ever" in January, as 360 console sales hit 309,000 for the month, says Microsoft.

A record number of new members joined last month - more than any other month in Xbox history, claims the platform holder, taking the total number of 360 owners on the service to 17 million.

North American users making use of the Netflix movie service topped the one million mark, with an average of 16 movies (!) having been streamed to each household. Bring it to Europe now, please.

Extending the Xbox Live trumpeting, Halo Wars set the day-one record for the most demo downloads, with more than two million trials grabbed in the first week of February.

Meanwhile in the NPD sales results for North America five Xbox 360 games made the top ten; Left 4 Dead, Call of Duty: World at War, Skate 2, Lord of the Rings: Conquest and Gears of War 2. Obviously they were in the half of the top ten that goes below Wii Fit and Mario Kart, but those two don't count any more.

Xbox 360 sales were up 33 percent in the region from a year earlier, said Microsoft.
