Xbox Live Up 80% Since Gears Of War

Sandvine Incorporated, which monitors broadband networking equipment, reports that since Gears of War was released November 7, traffic to Xbox Live has increased an impressive 80%. Some of that period includes the start of the Xbox Live Video Marketplace, so not all of it can be attributed to Gears, but any time you can claim an 80% increase over a previous month, you have a lot worth bragging about. I wouldn’t be surprised if retail sales of consoles and software saw a similar increase over the last month.

According to estimates from NexGenWars.com (which gathers data from public analyst reports and news stories), here is how the console have looked over the last month:
