Post-NXE Xbox LIVE stats

With the NXE launch behind us and the Holiday right around the corner a few data points just landed in my inbox that I though you might find interesting:

  • If LIVE were a U.S. city, it would be the largest city with over 14-million members. The equivalent of New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago combined.
  • Since the New Xbox Experience launched on Nov. 19 the number of new friends added per Xbox LIVE member has risen by 33%.
  • Xbox LIVE is not just games: With more than 45 global network and studio partners, and Netflix in the U.S., we offer more than 30,000 movies, TV episodes and music videos in both high and standard definition.
  • In the past year the average number of unique visitors to Xbox LIVE each day has risen 66%
  • Movie downloads increased 49% and TV episode downloads were up 30% the week after launch
  • Xbox LIVE Arcade sales almost tripled in the first week after the New Xbox Experience launched
  • Avatar-specific titles like A Kingdom for Keflings registered the second-best first week of performance ever
  • UNO which was updated to include in-game Avatars, saw a 650% increase in sales in just one day

So all in all….pretty good numbers. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next few weeks. (

Interesting Stuff! Thanks to Major Nelson for Posting them.

  • I'm still getting used to navigating NXE. I didn't seem to have to get used to anything with the old dashboard. The trade off: nicer on the eyes.

  • Cynical! I knew I liked you.

  • seems with these stats NXE seems more like a way to increase revenue rather then better the experiance

  • Anyone who thinks a progressive is the same as a marxist doesn’t know the meaning of either word.
