Forums - Gaming Discussion - Microsoft says Xbox has less than half the MAUs of PlayStation

I believe the latest MAU numbers are 120m for Xbox and 112m for PSN.

So I guess this means that greater than half of users using Xbox live are on pc/mobile etc.

PSN - 112m
Xbox Live (Consoles) - Less than 56m
Xbox Live (Other) - More than 64m

I'm assuming this is what Microsoft is suggesting...

Not really knowledgeable about what outside of gamepass on PC needs an Xbox live account to boost the numbers that high but I'm guessing Minecraft needs it for PC/Mobile and maybe Switch? Not sure if any of their steam releases utilise an Xbox live account too.

Some more juice coming out of these documents. Remember when Phil said GP leads to higher B2P sales? yeah, he knew it wasn't true.

He also said that Nintendo and Sony are not competition but Google is. Now they said the opposite.



So when am I considered a MAU according to MS?

When I play FS2020 on PC?
When I play Minecraft / Dungeons on PS5?
Or just when I play on the Series X while connected online.

They do. At least Halo MCC and Gears Tactics do. I've played them both recently and they both connect to Xbox live.

Even when you type "xbox" on Google technically you're a MAU

When you look at your TV or monitor as far as MS taking to shareholders go.

When they are trying to get Activision through...They don't even operate in your region. Yes,  that includes NA.



Please, can someone calculate how many of NSW (my brain is malfunctioning currently) ?
