Xbox One players have streamed 10 million minutes — the cumulative equivalent of 228 months or about 19 years — of Respawn Entertainment's first person shooter, Titanfall, on Twitch, Microsoft announced today.

According to a post on Xbox Wire, console owners have broadcast nearly 23 million minutes through Twitch on Xbox One.

Microsoft also revealed that 30 percent of Twitch broadcasts came from the console on March 11, the day the service launched on Xbox One. During the service's first week of availability, 108,000 unique broadcasters streamed from Xbox One, which accounted for 22 percent of the streaming service's broadcaster base.

"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," said Twitch COO Kevin Lin. "This high 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're really fortunate for such a passionate and progressive community who made this all possible."

Twitch revealed in early January that PlayStation 4 users accounted for 20 percent of Twitch broadcasts from Dec. 23, 2013 to Jan. 3, 2014. Sony President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida cited Twitch's popularity as the reason for the shortage of PS4 cameras.
