Xbox Live Sets Record with 2 Million on at Once

Likely driven by the nearly 5 million copies Modern Warfare 2 sold on its launch day, Xbox Live set a record Thursday with two million people logged into the service at once.

Community guru Major Nelson tweeted the news about noon U.S. Pacific time, with operations manager Eric ("e") Neustadter following with word of his own an hour later.

No specific reason was given for the record traffic but it's unimaginable Modern Warfare 2 is not a strong factor in this. No word on what the previous record was.
