"Titanfall" represents over 10 million of those minutes
Microsoft's Xbox One console and live streaming video platform Twitch have proved to be a good couple with 23 million minutes of gameplay videos in just one week.
, over 108,000 Twitch members used Xbox One to stream video to the Internet in the first week after app update went live on March 10. This accounted for 22 percent of Twitch’s unique broadcasters in the same period of time.
On the first day of availability, the Xbox One represented 30 percent of all streaming channels on Twitch. This includes more than 2.7 million minutes broadcast from Xbox One March 10-11, which is the most ever for a Twitch console app in its first day.
Microsoft added that the average Twitch broadcast on Xbox One is 28 minutes -- nearly as long as the average American TV sitcom.

“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.”
The Xbox One's most popular game to broadcast so far is sci-fi shooter "Titanfall," which represented more than 10 million of the 23 million minutes of video streamed from Xbox Ones globally.

I hate to say it but to avoid talking about sales numbers companies deflect with other stats. In this case Microsoft doesn't want to admit they are lagging behind PS4 sales so they brag about another stat without directly talking about being runner up in console sales. Yes that's me nobody hacked my account and posted that. Nothing wrong with runner up the PS3 was runner up to the 360 and I wouldn't say they lost. If I could get my family away from Kinect then I would have bought the PS4.
