We’re all on stage: The ease of streaming on the PlayStation 4 could be a game-changer

It’s one thing to know that the PlayStation 4 supports streaming out of the box, but it’s quite another to get a sense for just how easy it is to use. You link your account at Twitch or UStream, hit the “Share” button, choose which service you’d like to use, and there you go. You’re live in front of however many people are interested in seeing you play whatever game you’re playing.

I'm absolutely loving the Livestream feature! If a game comes out that I'm unsure of then I can just find a livestream to check it out! That and I love to talk and answer questions/make tutorials.

It is a fantastic feature, really adds a new dimension to the system. Question though, can we edit footage or is it all raw uploads?

(quote from the article) I didn’t have my microphone hooked up so I couldn’t interact, but the viewers sent me questions, they gave me tips on how to better my play, and they collectively cheered when I beat the boss.

That’s it. I’m hooked.

This really is the next step in social interaction,easy to use and fun.

This feature, announced way back at the initial February reveal, was a huge deal to me. They made it seem so easy and great then the console comes out and it's everything I expected. Watching games is the best form of advertisement for the games and it's entertaining as well. Couple that with the ability to easily chat with the broadcaster of have a friend easily show you a game upon request and "game changer" doesn't begin t cover it.

I LOVE this feature, it's a true step above the party chat of last gen. Now we can actually watch while a friend plays a game and chat about it.
It really is a more social and connected gaming device than ever.

I've never watched streamed gaming and I have no interest. It's just going to flood the internet with every Tom, Dick, and Harry streaming and using bandwidth.

Lol i laugh at what you said....

ElementX1487d ago

Why? Add millions more users potentially streaming and some ISPs may have to cap bandwidth or you'll find reduced speeds.

Your pretty much a minority here. If you think that people dont care about streaming guess again. Just go to Ustream or Twitch and you will see many people streaming games from their PS4.

Consumers win you lose.

I'm not exactly sure why, but I read this in "drunk" Malory Archer's voice.

DA_SHREDDER1487d ago

neocores1487d ago

Loving the streaming, hard to get views though :(

Yeah, with there not being a ton of launch games, everyone is being stretched thin on viewers. Once more games come out and the streamers can diversify so will the viewers looking for a specific game.
