With the PlayStation 4, Sony has provided the means for users to record and set up live feeds for their gameplay sessions using the Twitch TV streaming service. Today, the company reported just how popular the service has been – and it’s definitely growing.

Sony has stated that the system has accounted for approximately 10 percent of Twitch content since its launch last month, a figure tallied based upon broadcast minutes. In addition, the service has also added over 100,000 new PlayStation 4 subscribers since the system’s release, pushing its user base to well over 700,000 broadcasters total.

Matthew DiPietro, VP of Marketing at Twitch, stated, “When people look back at the true game changers of 2013, the integration of Twitch into the current generation consoles will be on the short list. As testament to the growing appeal of live broadcasting video game content, the amount of broadcasters on Twitch has grown from around 600,000 in October to more than 700,000 in November.

“In addition to more than 100K new broadcasters signing up since the launch of PlayStation 4, PS4 owners make up ten percent of all content on Twitch based on minutes broadcast,” DiPietro concluded.

Look for the number to continue to grow in 2014.
