Speaking in the latest issue of Edge, Microsoft Europe boss Chris Lewis has said that Europe makes up “less than a quarter” of Xbox Live’s total membership, mostly down to language differences.

“We don’t normally break out the European element of our Live membership,” said Lewis. “I mean, I know what it is, but I don’t want to get rapped on the knuckles by being too explicit with you. I will say to you as a percentage of that overall total, it’s just less than a quarter.”

America has “the lion’s share” of Xbox Live users, he said.
