Xbox 360 more used to movies and music than for games

In an interview with LA Times, Yusuf Mehdi (Yusuf Mehdi) from Microsoft said that last year the owners of the Xbox 360 were significantly more likely to use their console, and great for playing movies, serials and myzyki than just for games.

It should immediately clarify - it’s about time allocation of those consoles that are connected to Xbox Live. So, according to the results of recent studies, the average family spends per month on Xbox Live for games, music and movies for about 84 hours, which is 30% higher than it was last year.

How many hours spent on the game, the source does not specify limited by the phrase “less than half.” For comparison - the same family spends watching TV per month about 150 hours.

“We are seeing the following picture - users include the console to play, but then leave it enabled to use it for other forms of entertainment” - says Mehdi.

Total worldwide sold more than 66 million Xbox 360 consoles, more than half of which are connected to Xbox Live.
