Microsoft continues to see success with its Xbox brand, where the monthly active Xbox Live users this month increased 28% over the last quarter.

Xbox Live sees 28% more monthly active users compared to last quarter |

The total number of Xbox Live users sits at 49 million, with the total active count sitting at 39 million right now. Why the big uptick in users? Well, there have been some big releases lately like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Destiny: The Taken King to take into consideration. There are some even bigger games coming soon, such as Halo 5: Guardians and Rise of the Tomb Raider, which should see those numbers swell even more.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
