Along with setting new IP and PlayStation 4 sales records, Bungie announced today that Destiny also became the biggest console game launch of the year on Twitch in its first week since launch.

With Destiny content viewed nearly 20 million times and people watching almost 240 million minutes of gameplay, Twitch VP of Marketing Matthew DiPietro said:

To date, Destiny is the biggest console game launch of the year on Twitch. Our passionate community of broadcasters attracted more than 5 million unique viewers in the first week.

Bungie Community Manager David Dague added:

Our community has always blown us away with their desire to share, entertain, and inspire. Watching them broadcast their Destiny experiences on Twitch – from the Tower to the Crucible to the Vault of Glass Raid – has been nothing short of amazing. We’re humbled by the enthusiasm and we hope our community knows we’re watching and laughing and applauding back home at the studio.
