Turn off the Lights

Twitch.tv Live Streaming Coming To Xbox One

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!

About / Bio
I'm a lifelong gamer and share my passion with the world in the form of streaming my games on twitch.tv - www.twitch.tv/terrorhertz and making YouTube videos about all the games I enjoy. I'm also a budding games journalist here :)

My gaming journey began in the Christmas 1992 when aged 6, I got my Sega Mega Drive with Sonic One and World Cup Italia 90. Since then I have played and own pretty much every console since then, just check my collection video on my YouTube channel.

Now days I mainly play PC games and got into the PC side of things when I started playing Everquest in 2005. This game opened my eyes to the mmorpg genre and since then have played most MMO's of which World of Warcraft was my most played. Right now I'm playing and streaming DayZ and FIFA with a few other games thrown in here and there. I'm a games journalist and write weekly articles and monthly reviews and previews whilst also uploading 3+ videos weekly to my YouTube channel where you can find loads of awesome HD gaming videos - www.youtube.com/terrorhertzhd

I've worked as a hardware/software technician for Apple the past 4 years and really enjoy working with computers. I have built/modded/overclocked PC's since around 2007 and it's a massive interest of mine. My other hobbies include video editing, carp fishing, golf and playing guitar.
