John Schappert, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of Live, Software and Services for the Interactive Entertainment Business, has just claimed that over 1 billion Achievments have been unlocked on Xbox Live in his keynote.

“The Xbox 360 community has now unlocked over 1 billion Achievements,” he said, adding, “Gamers have activated almost 20 billion [Microsoft] Points”.

To you or me, that’s over $250 million spent online, not including Xbox Live Gold memberships.
