Xbox Live breaks concurrent users record

MW2 release boosts figure to 2 million.

A new record has been set for the number of Xbox Live users online at one time.

"We just hit a new Xbox Live record: Over TWO MILLION people connected to the service at once," wrote Major Nelson on his Twitter page.

Shacknews pointed out that the release of Modern Warfare 2 might have had something to do with it, as nearly a million people were playing the game on Live yesterday.
