60% of Xbox360 owners use Live

Today microsoft announced that 60% of all Xbox 360 owners actually use the Xbox Live silver memberships that are bundled for free with Xbox 360 systems.

The 360’s online rate has exceeded Microsoft’s expectations so far, but they don’t expect it to continue forever. This is because The Xbox Live Silver service does not allow online gameplay, but does let players post achievements and download demos. You must buy a gold membership to play online.
