The PS4 boasts its “Share” button on the controller so people can show off their games but Microsoft revealed today that the Xbox One will have Twitch integration meaning players can stream their games online using the popular service. This feature will only be available to Xbox Live Gold members and on top of streaming games out to viewers the Xbox One will allow you to watch other streams as well.
With the simple Kinect command “Xbox: broadcast,” the Xbox One can begin streaming to Twitch. You can broadcast your voice and video too, which is an important part if you’re to engage the audience.
There is a small side not that explains “Available with supported games” note so we’ll need to see just how widely supported it is.
Twitch CEO Emmett Shear said, “Live broadcasting has continued to grow in popularity, but sharing your console experience has never been this easy,” Well, it hasn’t so far, but it certainly will be once the PS4 hits the shelves. Hopefully Twitch servers don’t slow down due to the influx of users streaming their games. In the past the League of Legends tournaments have crippled their network, so we hope they implement a few new servers to cope with the demand for its service!
