This stat got a passing mention in a recent pre-E3 story on Microsoft’s Xbox strategy, but it’s such a juicy stat it deserves a headline. Are you using Xbox (or even Playstation) for much more than games?
The original blog post from Microsoft points to 30 hours per month of video consumption per month per Xbox, and growing fast. There’s surely going to be some territorial differences, with the US having services like Netflix to make added video close to a no-brainer. But even here we’ve now got movie rentals and also Foxtel, so we’re not totally left out in the cold here.
We’re wondering if non-gaming content is something core gamers are getting into. Or is it the kind of thing that fits into those nights where there’s not enough time for a good game session so a TV show or movie is a good fit? And why not do it all on the one piece of hardware? Or do you prefer to keep things separate?
Shameless plug, but only because it’s a total freebie: Don’t forget the free month of Foxtel offer running right now. The ads are all over our site. Or are you someone who would not even try Foxtel because you don’t want your console to be taken over by other media?
