CNET: PlayStation 4 Stealth killer App: Live Game Broadcasting

Much of the talk about next-gen consoles, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, has been about how they don't really do much that's different from their predecessors. Sure, the game graphics are nicer, and the social media hooks are baked in from the start, rather than shoehorned in years later, but is that really revolutionary? (PS4) -

Well, Sony's biggest selling point for the PS4s online infrastructure can't really be called a 'stealth feature'. But it's a good read nonetheless.

Was going to add, if you scroll through the people streaming PS4 games (myself included...) Nothing stealthily about it.

I said it before in a previous comment. The streaming to Twitch is a HUGE feature and some don't realise it.

Tho I won't buy one til like march when infamous comes but I can't wait to use this feature.

Yeah seriously, it's even got it's own dedicated button on the controller.

I think people didn't expect this feature to really catch on as well as it is. Personally, I like to watch game streams and was excited for it, but then I got my PS4 and saw how seamless it was to watch and stream myself and even going in with high expectations I was pretty floored at how awesome it is.

Sony doesnt show off with it. Think if the ps4 didnt have that feature and the xbox one did, microsoft would use that to try and kill sony and sony just played it cool and thats what I like.

Its a great feature. One that I was sceptical of at first but now am completely sold after using it.

I really want to try this feature out when Infamous SS comes out, and I still need to buy my camera

Now if people would watch me play. Haha, the most Ive got at once is 7, viewers that is.

How quickly do we see MS get their Twitch situation fixed based on how popular this has become? I am betting by end of January (if not sooner) they have streaming on X1 sorted out.

The only game I want to stream is Battlefield 4. The video streams fine depending on my connection but audio never streams nor does the audio get recorded when just recording. Many people have this problem. EA hasn't done anything about it unfortunately. I'm doing this through the ps4 by the way.

i kinda agree with the article...i really didn't pay much attention to this feature, but the last two nights in a row i fell asleep in front of the tv watching people better than me kick ass in BF4.

its really cool to see all the different games being played...even if you aren't interested in the game, a good player can make it seem interesting.

It will be great for watching someone play a game you are on the fence about buying.
