Xbox 360 Owners Stream The Least
Gaming consoles have become far more than simply a box to stick in your living room and play games from. They’ve evolved into veritable multimedia entertainment hubs which is great and that is really going to be pushed with next-gen but just how much time do gamers spend using those other services?
One of the main alternate services is video-on-demand and other streaming services which allow you to watch a whole collection of content whenever you want. According to Nielsen, video-on-demand and other streaming services accounted for only 13 per cent of the time American Xbox 360 owners spent with their consoles in 2012, a 1 per cent drop from 2011.

Meanwhile, PS3 users spent 24% of their time streaming and Wii users spent a sizeable 32% of their time streaming rather than playing games. It’s a rather interesting set of stats and perhaps highlights that consoles are for far more than just gaming these days.
That said, the focus should not be taken off gaming and this is a tangible worry as rumours have spread regarding Microsoft developing the next Xbox as more of an entertainment hub than gaming console with added functionality and features.
