Every two seconds on Xbox Live, someone adds a Gamertag like xX_tehPwnz0rz69_Xx, according to the service's chief of marketing. Addressing the London Games Conference, Xbox Live's Robin Burrowes said that Call of Duty and Kinect have shot up enrollment from 10 million in 2008 to 20 million in 2009 and now 35 million today, reports Develop.
Contrast this with the 50,000 users who signed up at Xbox Live's launch on the original console, back in 2002. Burrowes believes in the next five years all entertainment will be interactive in some form, with Xbox Live serving it, of course.
How far back do you go? I signed up for Xbox Live in 2004, about six months after I bought the console. Any original adopters reading this right now?
