(Pocket-lint) - The Xbox Live team have revealed some very interesting numbers that might alleviate your console-gaming guilt. If you felt bad grabbing an hour or two on your machine don't fret, the average Xbox One user is at it for five hours.

This being an average suggests some Xbox One owners spend serious time locked into console focus-mode.

Twitch says that since its Xbox One app added broadcasting on 10 March nearly 23 million minutes of streamed gameplay have gone online. And if that wasn't impressive enough, more than 2.7 million minutes were broadcast from Xbox One consoles between 10 and 11 March alone .
