Right, ive copied this from another site that i found whilst doing a wild google search and the original post is from 2007.
But, the 360 had only been out a year since the article, and xbox live not really much more. Maybe 2-3 years.
Heres the article.
Xbox Live has hit 6,000,000 users, and to commemorate the occassion, Microsoft have released some stats on the service and how people have been using it. Warning: SILLY NUMBERS AHEAD.
Since Xbox Live’s inception, there’s been 2,300,000,000 hours spent playing games on the network. Which is 95,000,000 days. Which is 260,000 years.
2,000,000 text and voice messages are sent over the service every day.
Average number of gamers on your friends list? 22.
Nearly 300,000,000 achievement points have so far been unlocked. Which adds up to a collective, hivemind-esque gamerscore of 7,500,000,000.
See? Silly numbers. When, at the dying of the sun, High Priestess Xanthorg remarks upon mankind’s most lasting achievements before all known existence is extinguished in a celestial furnace, surely she will speak of the 260,000 years we spent playing Xbox Live.
Still fun, though, I wonder how long it would take a single person to earn 7,500,000,000 achievement points. Just to say “today, I have bested what was once the collective output of all humankind”. Get cracking, score whores.
Full, silly press release after the leap. Luke Plunkett
