Got mine today. Though it'd be interesting to see how everyone's habits have changed since last month (if you got both since they started)? Let's see. Mine look like this:

Total Time on LIVE:
Feb: 229 hours, 18 minutes
Jan: 188 hours, 53 minutes

Most Frequent Activity:
Feb: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - 78 hours, 54 minutes (2nd - Fallout: New Vegas, 3rd - Netflix)
Jan: Netflix - 93 hours, 09 minutes (2nd - Battlefield: Bad Company 2, 3rd - Dead Rising 2: Case West)



Some other interesting tidbits, for those who didn't get the email:

- Like in January, the most common achievement in February was from Call of Duty: Black Ops

- The average Xbox LIVE Gold membership gamerscore is 7,282g (for Free, it's 1,083g)


I'm not surprised my top game was Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (that Huey achievement was awful!), but I AM surprised my game time went up overall. With school getting more busy and my daughter requiring (read: wanting) more attention, I thought for sure it would of gone down at least a little.

I think you have to sign up to receive communications from Xbox on Xbox.com.

I've not gotten mine yet, but it should be a lot lower because I've mainly been on my PS3 most of the month.

last month when these first started going out, it was said that you get them by being signed up to the xbox newsletter. i signed up for it after hearing that, however, i still haven't been sent one. it seems no one knows exactly what you have to do.

Is this maybe a US only thing?

I've got every communication selected, (except third party), that I could see and I still don't get this.

I honestly have no idea. I don't recall signing up for anything that mentioned a 'Personalized XBox Update'. The only real recent thing I signed up for was the Rewards, but I have no idea if that has anything to do with it.

Y'know, Twinkie, you may be on to something. The only thing I signed up for as well was the Rewards Program, and the email even mentions it.

I signed up for the rewards thing and I haven't had one. Perhaps it's a US only AND rewards thing.

Down from the month before because I was sick and didn't play any Xbox for like 4 days. Also the rest of my time was mostly Bulletstorm and Marel vs. Capcom 3.

I kind of figured the US-only aspect of it was kind of a given.

This is what to do to get your personalized Xbox stuff -

Make sure you have an Xbox.com account linked to the gamertag you want to get the info about.

Sign into your account on xbox.com.

Click on your gamer pic in the upper right.

On the left under your name and whatnot there will be 5 different links you can click on. Click on the fourth one down "contact preferences"

The first box you can check is for "Xbox newsletter/marketing"

Check that bitch!

The next one says "partner marketing" - I have mine checked I don't think it has anything to do with your personalized stuff but not sure.

Make damn sure you have your correct email address filled in!

Sit back and wait :)

This worked for me and I have no idea if it works outside of the US.

Not sure you get this. I'm in the US, I have my preferences set to receive any emails from both xbox and partners, and I'm set up in the xbox rewards program. Nothing :(

Whats the email address you get it from?

I just talked to my brother and he didn't get the email either. He's more on top of all that stuff than me by far and said hes got everything checked that you can. It seems that it's just hit or miss which is total bullshit. I even tried looking through some of the xbox.com forums to see if anybody knew more, but got nothing :confused::confused:. Sorry to people who don't have it but I can tell you that the emails are not all that accurate anyways. I did not spend 50 hours playing Splatterhouse!!!!!

I got an email for and account I no longer use but not the main account I have. I dont know why they dont do it for all accounts. I think everyone would like to know their stats.

PS I have the "Xbox Newsletter / Marketing" box checked.

Don't worry about it too much. The last one I got was waaaaay off in almost all the stats.

For those curious, Xbox Rewards now has a "My Stats" section that shows some of the same stuff these emails did.
