Xbox Live tops 50K in Europe

That's lots, that.

Microsoft has issued a typically long and arduous press release today excitedly reporting that more than 50,000 people are using Xbox Live across Europe - which presumably also includes those accumulated by the Test Drive phase since November. In total, there are about 350,000 people using the service worldwide according to Microsoft's estimates. What's more, they say, the next couple of months will throw up a number of new titles to keep players happy.

In May we have Star Wars The Clone Wars (multiplayer and downloadable content), Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee (content), MotoGP 2 (multiplayer), Phantasy Star Online (multiplayer), Burnout 2 (online scoreboards), and Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War (multiplayer and content). Then in June, Midtown Madness (multiplayer and content), Midnight Club 2 (multiplayer) and Brute Force (content).

We'll spare you the other 1500 words or so of guff. Suffice to say, it's very popular, and rightfully so, and Microsoft isn't about to let anyone forget it!
