Xbox One users have broadcast nearly 23 million minutes of gameplay via Twitch, Microsoft has announced today.

According to a post on Xbox Wire, 108,000 unique users tried streaming via Twitch during its first week of availability—accounting for 22 percent of the service’s broadcasting base during the same period—with more than 2.7 million minutes broadcast between March 10-11. As you’d expect, Titanfall is the most broadcast game with more than 10 million minutes streamed.

“We have always considered enabling live streaming directly from consoles to be a key step in unlocking the ability for all gamers to share their experiences,” said Emmett Shear, Founder and CEO of Twitch. “Yet we never imagined the popularity would spread as fast as it has.

“Microsoft has really helped drive this expansion, and the great system architecture of Xbox One has allowed us to build a really great broadcasting experience with a robust feature set. We’re all very excited about working with Microsoft to continue rolling out new features on the platform.”

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
