I got my email. My Xbox ONE stats are 282 hours playing games on Xbox Live, 5570 Gamerscore, unlocked 319 achievements, and I have played 17% of the entire Xbox ONE catalogue. Stats could have been better if spent no time still playing Xbox 360 / PS3 plus Wii U and PC games and watching TV/Netflix. They did not include stats for Netflix, but there is another email tomorrow, maybe they will have stats for how much I have watched stuff on Netflix!
