E3 2018 was an absolute blast for gamers because a lot of exciting titles were announced. Publishers like Microsoft and Sony showcased incredible experiences like Gears 5 and a Resident Evil 2 remake.

Gaming is a passionate hobby and it's only natural for individuals to get a little competitive when it comes to the brands they love. One such metric is which E3 2018 presentation was viewed the most. Luckily, GitHyp was able to provide the answer. GitHyp analyzes various platforms to find out which games are the most played on Steam and which are the most watched on Twitch.

With no new consoles announced this year, E3 2018 was all about the games. And more gamers than any other year tuned in to Twitch for all the latest breaking news and big announcements from the gaming industry... for the second year in a row, Microsoft's livestream was the highest viewed stream on Twitch. Xbox E3 briefing wasn't just the most watched live event of this year's convention… it was also the highest concurrent viewer count of any stream ever on Twitch, pulling in an impressive 1.7 million viewers... Compared to last year's E3, Microsoft's briefing saw an impressive increase of 600,000 concurrent viewers on Twitch — which doubled the 818,000 viewers they had back in 2016.

The top five livestreams are listed below.

  1. Xbox — 1.7 million concurrent viewers
  2. Ubisoft — 1.6 million concurrent viewers
  3. PlayStation — 1.5 million concurrent viewers
  4. Bethesda — 964,000 concurrent viewers
  5. PC Gaming Show — 893,000 concurrent viewers

It's great to see Microsoft garner so much attention. The move to Sunday makes it so even more gamers can watch the livestream as it's a holiday almost everywhere in the world. Hopefully this success will continue in the future when the company reveals even more compelling experiences at its event.
