Vomit-inducing stat time: Microsoft’s claimed that Live users have notched up enough hours on its online gaming service to account for two for every person on earth.

“In seven years, Xbox Live members have spent more than 17 billion hours on Xbox Live,” said MS’s Trixie360 on Twitter.

“That’s more than two hours for every person on the planet!”

As G4 points out, that’s about 2 million years, or around 850 hours for every one of the current 20 million-plus Live subscribers.
