Xbox One Reveal Breaks Viewing Records


Over 8.45 million people watched the Xbox One reveal online during the first 24 hours, breaking viewership records. The company says viewership at this level makes the Xbox One reveal event “one of the top-most concurrent streamed events of all time.”

Through, Microsoft saw almost three times as many people watching the livestream concurrently than other other major event in the website’s history. The event was streamed by Akamai, which reports the Xbox One presentation was among the most watched live broadcasts from the company in its history.

The event nearly doubled peak traffic records for Akamai, Microsoft said, and passed the viewership records set by events like the 2010 World Cup, the Royal Wedding in 2011, and 2012 election night.

The Xbox One is due out this holiday season. Microsoft will share more details about the platform next month during the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo.
