Twitch On PlayStation 4 Makes Brilliant Innovations

Game Informer: We had a look at how Twitch will run on the PlayStation 4 today at Sony's event in New York City. While the interface looks familiar, it offers streamlined usability not before seen on consoles. (PS4, Sony)

This is cool as hell. I feel like twitch is going to be completely and utterly flooded after release though. Hundreds of thousands of people testing twitch out lol.

I anticipate that there will be a number of severe (but forgivable) network issues among all of the different social plugs, especially where video is concerned. But I'm going to try anyway. :)

So much easier to hate now can't wait to hear all about it. at least none of the 7 min videos are going to begin with "XBox record that!"... no wait END with that.
OlgerO  +   538d ago
yeah its going to be down for the first few days I think.
nosferatuzodd  +   538d ago

Can we use the PS app to see the chat so I can have the game full screen?
Ashlen  +   538d ago
Well I assume your talking about on a tablet or smartphone. Twitch has it own apps for those if the PlayStation app doesn't work. You can just join your channel with those or on your laptop using the browser.

I can guarantee that Twitch is going to crash on day 1.
HaveAsandwich  +   538d ago
yup. ill be streaming, while it crashes down.
mxrider2199  +   538d ago
Why would it crash? it has been holding streamers for a long time
christrules0041  +   538d ago
Yes but imagine even if 1/4 people try out the share feature. Twitch holds streamers all the time but this is going to have a lot of people streaming all at once. There is also going to be a crap load of people downloading games day 1.
mxrider2199  +   538d ago
But downloading games is connecting to PSN server not twitches and only the people who have internet powerful enough to stream and i guarantee you most of those who can get the ps4 day 1 already stream on current consoles
lets_go_gunners  +   538d ago
Twitch crashes when league and dota and even worse cod championships are being played. So it definitely is gonna be wonky day 1.
Fireseed  +   538d ago
Like the search function? Friggin incredible the current Twitch app doesn't have that basic function on the 360! >_>

Too bad from what ive read that, users dont have the option of uploading to FB or Youtube.. thank goodness theres at least twitch.. I guess Having a burger with out fries or coke is better than not eating nothing at all...But then again why even bother eating a burger for...Get healthy...

CaddyLss  +   538d ago

Heisenburger  +   538d ago
Do you. even lift. bro?
AceBlazer13  +   538d ago

tethered  +   538d ago
Just signed up to both. Not sure I'll upload but I know I'll be checking out a lot of what my friends upload. great feature!

You can earn donations from twitch users once you start streaming, that is if they start to love watching your streams.

PS4 live gameplay streaming confirmed on day one with Twitch TV. The SEN gameplay streaming will probably also be day one. There are a lot of nice looking gamer girls on there, not sure what is going on with that, real gamer girls don't exist, might be some kind of "marketing" going on.

I might have sign up for twitch.

so you can watch someone play a game live? Why would I want to do that, wouldn't it be more fun to play your own game? I could understand the point of it as a screen capture type of program but really who wants to sit and watch someone else play video games over the internet? And then comment at them while they play?

I can nearly guarantee I will never use this app.
thehitman  +   537d ago
My most anticipated feature. Cant wait to show off my gaming sessions to friends/family. I hope its seamless and the quality is decent.
TheTowelBoy  +   537d ago
No offense to twitch by any means but I really dont think their bodies are ready :P
dartmyth  +   537d ago
now mabye twitch will have something other than luage of legands to watch
chobit_A5HL3Y  +   537d ago
does this mean we don't have to buy a recording device? can you talk or make commentaries over your videos???
