"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.

RE: Must be some ploy by MS

Funny, writers have been using irony, sarcasm, and many other devices which you would probably claim require voice inflection successfully for millennia. Why is that?
The fact I stated that consoles still sitting in the box, not powered up, were the source of the Twitch streams should have made it obvious I wasn't serious. I was taking a jab at those who claim MS is lying about Xbox One sales numbers based on seeing some boxes in their local Best Buy.
I shouldn't have to explain this. Perhaps you should stick to See Spot Run in the future. Seems more in line with your reading level.
