Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 EVO Stream Breaks Viewership Records, Over 140K Concurrent Viewers

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
Now this is simply amazing. Despite the fact that Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 never came to the PC, we’re big fans of it. And we are also big fans of Evolution. Earlier tonight, Super Smash Bros. Melee broke the viewership records as there were around 120K viewers online at the same time. Well, that record has been broken in just a couple of hours as Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 has now over 140K viewers, making it the most watched fighting game in history.
The grand finals are about to begin now, and we’ve seen some amazing matches. Surprisingly enough, both ChrisG and Filipino Champ have been eliminated. Justin Wong, on the other hand, has managed to make it to the finals (after defeating the legendary ChrisG).
It will be interesting to see whether the final of Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition will be able to brake Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3’s viewership record.
Those interested can view EVO 2013 by visiting its Twitch.TV stream.
[UPDATE]
Justin Wong fought well but was unable to win the finals of UMVC3. The winner and grand champion is Flocker, so kudos to him!
