Xbox 360 now used more for consuming media than gaming in the US

Streaming services using up more time than games for US Xbox owners

The latest usage figures for Xbox Live from Microsoft show an interesting shift in patterns of use for the Xbox 360.

It has shown that Xbox 360 users are now spending more than half their time streaming video and audio over Xbox Live relegating games to second place on the machine.

Xbox owners are still using their machines for gaming spending on average around 84 hours a month gaming on Xbox Live which is 30 percent more than the same time last year.

Microsoft SVP of Interactive Entertainment Yusuf Mehdi said, "What we're seeing is that people are turning on the Xbox to play games and then keeping it on afterwards to get other types of entertainment."

Thanks The LA Times.
