Achievements. Almost every major platform has them now in some shape or form, but they started on the Xbox 360 back in 2005. Have you ever wondered how many have been unlocked in that time?

While writing an upcoming story on Xbox Live, I got hold of these numbers related to the service, which I figured were worth sharing now ahead of time. Since the first achievement was, well, achieved in 2005, Microsoft tells me there have been 6.3 billionachievements unlocked in Xbox 360 games.

If you're concerned how your Gamerscore shapes up against the global median, the average score is 11,286. And if you ever wondered how many gamer points have been racked up by players since 2005, the number (as of March 2011) stands at a whopping 176,802,201,383.

On a broader level, Microsoft says that every day over 20 million people log onto Xbox Live, who have contributed to 4 billion hours of multiplayer gaming since the service kicked off back in 2002.

And...that's it. Who said numbers weren't fun?

man thats scary.



Pfff 4 billion hours, that's still only 0.003% of the age of the universe. Keep on gaming.

6.3 billion unlocked, still slightly less then 1 per person on earth, needs improving.



and Trophies are still more enjoyable to unlock. But kuddos for you for looking up and copyingand pasting numbers into a thread.
