Sony announced TwitchTV integration for the PS4 at Gamescom and a lot of gamers around the world were pleased. There’s a reason for that. TwitchTV is widely regarded the better streaming service compared to Ustream.
For the service to work, you have to press the share button on the PS4 DualShock 4 controller and then you can record and broadcast your gameplay directly to your Twitch channel. You will also be able to spectate and a viewing app will be available soon on the platform.
Here’s some details released by the ESA: “Fifty-one percent of U.S. households own a dedicated game console, and those that do own an average of two.”
TwitchTV’s official statement can be found below:
With Twitch coming to both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, odds are Twitch is going to be in a lot of living rooms in the very near future. We’re paving the way for every gamer to become an avid broadcaster, and putting those streams in front of more eyeballs than you’ve ever imagined. We thank you all for helping make this possible and we’re looking forward to seeing Twitch on next-generation consoles this Fall.
We will keep you updated once we hear more on this.
