Xbox Live Hits 4 Million

Microsoft has announced that its Xbox Live service has reached the 4 million subscriber mark. What’s more, it expects to log 6 million users by June 2007. It has also stated that 70 percent of its users are downloading content and 9 million voice and text messages are sent weekly.

So the 3rd Gen console war is on the brink of beginning and Microsoft has already declared a significant market foothold. Perhaps going to retail early, with little product, was indeed the way to go? I guess we’ll see when the Wii and the PS3 drop.
