Xbox Live is Huge!

It is a good thing Microsoft can see the future. They somehow anticipated that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 might be a big game. Because of this information beamed to them from the cosmos, they decided to bunker down the Xbox Live staff and prepare for what they knew was going to be a big day of online gaming.

What they didn't know was that Tuesday was going to become the largest day Xbox Live has ever had. They recorded more than 2 million gamers on the service at the same time. Dennis Durkin, COO of Microsoft entertainment said, "Tuesday was the biggest day we've ever seen on Live. {It's a} landmark event for our industry."

Have you played COD:MW2 yet? If so, did you play online on opening day?
