A look at a few 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.
