Xbox Reveal Sets Akamai Records

Last week's Xbox One Reveal event ranked among one of the most-watched live broadcasts that Akamai has delivered. A post on Xbox Wire notes that the event "nearly [doubled] peak traffic records and [eclipsed] concurrent viewership high-water marks set by events such as the 2010 World Cup, Royal Wedding in 2011, and 2012 election night."

Xbox also reported that more than 8.45 million people watched the Xbox One Reveal in the first 24 hours and Nielsen numbers indicated the SPIKE TV broadcast of the briefing was the #1 television show for Men 18-34 at 10 am on May 21.
