Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb recently released some stats about Xbox Live that hours of video consumed globally on Xbox Live increased 140 percent from 2010 to 2011. Not only that, but the new Metro-style dashboard saw a 60 percent increase in app usage and a 50 percent increase in users using those apps.

“We are committed to enhancing and expanding our global entertainment offerings on Xbox Live in 2012,” wrote Hryb. “Moving forward, you can expect to see more of the world’s leading entertainment providers coming to Xbox and a continued roll out of additional entertainment apps.”
