Evolution 2013 livestream viewers nearly 50 percent more than last year

Evolution 2013 livestream draws record numbers on Twitch with 1.7 million unique viewers watching the tournament's official livestream channels.

"According to Matthew DiPietro, vice president of marketing at Twitch, concurrent viewership during Evo peaked at 144,848 for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. That viewership figure bests Twitch's estimates for Super Smash Bros. Melee, which drew 134,000 viewers, and Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, which drew 125,000 viewers.

Twitch says those record-breaking numbers smashed all records for fighting game tournaments, coming in nearly 50 percent higher than last year's Evo - the previous record holder."
