Thousands say “Xbox, Broadcast”Apr 01 2014 · 1 comment · News, Press, Status
With these two simple words, thousands of Xbox One owners have made the leap from their living rooms to the vast reaches of the World Wide Web shouting, “Look at me world, [I think] I’m good at video games!”
To help Twitch users consume this yummy goodness, we’ve dedicated a directory solely to Xbox One broadcasts so all of our new Xboxcasters (need to copyright that™) will be easy to find. So whether your game of choice is Titanfall, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, Forza, FIFA 14, or any other Xbox One title, you can find the action here.
Since the evening of March 10 when the Twitch broadcasting app first went live on Xbox One, our community has set some impressive console broadcasting milestones, including:
- On March 11th, 30% of Twitch’s broadcasters were streaming from Xbox One.
- Within the first week there have been a total of 108,000 unique broadcasters from Xbox One, accounting for 22% of Twitch’s broadcaster base.
- To date, Twitch members have streamed 10 million minutes of Titanfall from Xbox One, which is also the most broadcast game from the console.
Our own Kevin Lin, COO, had this to say:
“Microsoft has a put a lot of time and effort into ensuring their Twitch integration would be a robust experience, and based on the amount of Xbox One owners streaming from their living rooms, the move paid off. It’s fun to see the way the Twitch community has embraced Xbox One. The rate of adoption for our console integrations has elevated our role in the entertainment industry. People go to Hulu to watch TV, Netflix to watch movies, and now they go to Twitch to watch and broadcast video games. We are really fortunate for such a passionate and progressive community who has made this all possible.”
