As you may have seen, last week we announced that PS4 has sold over 2 million units around the world since its launch late last month. Of course, it’s great to see such healthy numbers, but even more heartening is seeing just how enthusiastic the response has been to one of the new systems banner features: the Share button.

Today, we’re happy to announce that there have been nearly 800,000 gameplay broadcasts and more than 7.1 million spectate sessions via Twitch and Ustream. In total, that adds up to more than 20 million minutes of live gameplay streamed from PS4 systems across the globe.

Here are a few more stats for you:

  • According to Ustream, each broadcast lasts for an average of 31 minutes
  • Twitch reports that 10% of all content broadcast via its platform since 15th November has come from PS4 systems
  • PS4′s Share Menu has been accessed 10.9 million times since launch

“PlayStation 4 is specifically designed so people can share their gaming experiences and interest in streaming live gameplay has surpassed our wildest expectations,” commented Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios.

“We’re very excited to see gamers embrace live streaming from their PS4 system and we look forward to seeing how PlayStation gamers advance social gaming in the coming years.”
