Aaron Greenberg, Xbox’s director of product management, has confirmed that Live users are now downloading in the region of 1 million pieces of content daily.

“People are now downloading about a million things every day from the service,” he said. “When we first launched 360, it took us four months – 120 days, more or less – to get 10 million downloads. And now we’re doing 10 million downloads in ten days.”

Greenberg was speaking in the latest Major Nelson podcast. The exec’s profile was raised significantly recently after he blew a lid over Sony’s performance with PS3. Apparently he’s calmed down a bit now.

“Yeah, I guess I have been rather vocal of late,” he told the Major. “I had a few things to get off my chest, but feel better about it now.”
