Microsoft has sold many Xbox 360 consoles, but apparently only 60 percent of them are used for gaming. The remaining 40 percent of consoles are used for other, just-as-fun things, like watching Netflix and tweeting Opie & Anthony‘s Bobo sweet nothings. Mhmm. So said a Microsoft exec at a digital entertainment conference.
With that in mind, it certainly leads credence to whoever thinks Microsoft, if it wanted to, could become a “big player” in the TV space, à la Google TV. The Xbox 360: Mirosoft’s Trojan Horse.
Microsoft also let it be known that there’s 25 million Xbox Live subscribers, but only half of those people have the “real” Xbox Live, Xbox Live Gold.
