Major Nelson just published some interesting statistics highlighting the success of the NXE [new xbox experience] update. To summarize it for you, we supposedly have more friends on our friends list and purchased both UNO and A Kingdom for Keflings since November 19th. Does this sound like you, gamers? Look below for the list of informational tidbits Microsoft published just a few moments ago. Definitely interesting to say the least.
