During the E3 Microsoft provided a huge load of new Marketplace contents as you might have noticed. This campaign turned out to be really popular, over 600 terabytes of data was transfered making it the most popular week ever for the Marketplace. The most popular item was, of course, the Halo 3 teaser. More stats after the jump.
â€śOnly Xbox Live could bring E3 home in high definition for consumers around the world,â€ť said Peter Moore, corporate vice president of the Interactive Entertainment Business in the Entertainment and Devices Division at Microsoft. â€śThe sheer volume of downloads during E3 week was simply staggering. To put it in perspective, all the printed material in the U.S. Library of Congress is estimated to be about 20 terabytes, and Xbox Live delivered 30 times that amount in just 7 days. While others talk about online entertainment in the console space, we are delivering it in glorious high-definition to the millions of members we have across 24 countries. â€ś
The top 10 of Marketplace downloads during the E3:
- 1. Halo 3 Game Trailer
- 2. Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Free Playable Demo
- 3. Test Drive Unlimited Free Playable Demo
- 4. MotoGP ‘06 Free Playable Demo
- 5. X-Men: The Last Stand Pack
- 6. Gears of War GameTrailer
- 7. Call of Duty 2: Skirmish Map Pack
- 8. Spiderman 3 Game Trailer
- 9. Fable 2 Trailer
- 10. Uno Xbox Live Arcade Game
The Lost Planet demo ended up surprisingly high for a game that isn’t really talked about that much and Peter Moore was already talking about how much the pre-orders for Fight Night 3 ramped up after the demo was released so let’s hope publishers take note and release more demos.
