Ustream is terrible, laggy as hell

Hope we can stream using Twitch, since that is a host only for gamers

Well I don't know... twitch is partnered with Microsoft

Considering Twitch has people streaming The Last of Us now it is possible to stream it via Twitch it would be built into the console however.

I was confused why they announced UStream instead of Twitch, until May. But yeah I really hope Twitch has no exclusive deal with MS because that would suck. All it would take is a firmware update to allow for both streaming services. No hardware changes necessary. So at least it's in the realm of possibilities.

Do you have to pay for a UStream account to broadcast? I don't know about their service.

it's all free and if you become famous then you can get revenue from ads and subscriptions. There are people that make a living from that alone... Just playing games like 3-4 hours a day everyday and that is it. But now is not so easy because the e-sports scene took off and all the attention goes toward the MLG and crap and like mindless sheep, people just follow the most popular stuff...

You still need some equipment though like a capture-card and some encoding software but the PS4 and XB1 will do it automatically.

This is gonna be so fun man!

BTW, the quality of your stream is heavily dependant on your upload speed and you need at least 1MB up for a decent cast.

Ustream never lagged on me

lol ustream, now say what you will but there is no defending ustream, xb1 obviously has the advantage in the streaming department
PositiveEmotions  +   437d ago
Im not defending ustream im only telling the truth and xb1 having an advantage thats unclear atm but ps4 has streaming with just one button and its a simple one "SHARE" button.

However i wont say who is the victor in the streaming department as of yet but as of now the ps4 has more details on it.

ger2396  +   437d ago
Wasn't it confirmed that you could use twitch on ps4? I can't find the link.
boing1  +   437d ago
You can't find it because they didn't confirm it. It's Facebook and Ustream for now.
ger2396  +   437d ago
Twitch streaming functionality is tied to the software, not the hardware, as Microsoft’s partnership with the company for the Xbox One might appear, meaning game developers can integrate it into their games on any platform using the software development kit. Speaking to Joystiq, Twitch VP of Marketing Matthew DiPietro said Twitch streaming capabilities can be built into any game, and the company is currently pursuing developers to do so. DiPietro said the current agreement with Microsoft doesn’t inhibit Twitch integration [...]

Sony never mentioned Twitch.

Twitch sucks, I'd rather Sony have their own broadcasting website.

Hope they do some cool gameplay stuff like it seems they are doing with deep down.
