PlayStation 4’s Sharing Functions A Resounding Hit
800,000 broadcasts, 7.1 million spectate sessions, 10.9 million shares.
Sony’s PlayStation 4 has some highly integrated sharing features for video games and players, such as the ability to livestream your game play session over Twitch or uStream, or, for instance, just the ability to share your recorded gameplay or screenshots with the share feature. Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced that both features have been resounding hits with gamers.
10% of nearly all the content on Twitch since the PS4’s initial launch under a month ago has come from PS4 users- we are talking 800,000 broadcasts and 7.1 million spectate sessions across Twitch and uStream, totaling to more than 20 million minutes of recorded gameplay.
The top games broadcast are the usual suspects (hint: they’re all shooters)- Killzone Shadow Fall, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts.
In addition to all the streaming and broadcasting, the Share button has been pressed a staggering 10.9 million times already.
Looks like Sony is on to something here with all these sharing features.
