More Xbox One Twitch features to come - Microsoft talks Party chat, Kinect trolling

Xbox Live bigwig Chad Gibson has shed a little more light on the addition of a broadcast feature to Twitch on Xbox One, slated to arrive on 11th March. Microsoft may also make it possible to take Twitch profile pictures with Kinect and access chatrooms via SmartGlass, though these features won't be available at the same time as the livestream functionality.

Lol, imagine being able to shut down (e.g.) a Total Biscuit video by yelling "Xbox, sign me out" in a British accent.

"Xbox One's Twitch app allows users to join the broadcaster's Xbox Live party"

Now that's cool.

I heard twitch on x box 1 runs at a higher resolution when streaming than the PS4 twitch.

I just find that funny to be honest. It also looks lot better than the one on PS4.

Knws was out of bubbles to respond. Below is his response to me in a PM.


Cleared stated the x box 1 twitch runs at 720p

PS4 IS 420P or 480p

Thanks KNWS

KingDadXVI3791d ago

Tip of the hat for you and @KNWS and bubbles to boot for the cooperation and link.

Can we all just admit that Twitch might be a little better on X1 than PS4?

if this was about ps4 i bet you would...

bosoxs5053792d ago

That is the N4G logic. They talk negative on Xbox Exclusives, while they praise Playstation exclusives even if they are not good.

GearSkiN3792d ago (Edited 3792d ago )

yup. i love this site but its so PSNATION...

LAWSON723792d ago

I am curious before the update what was wrong with party chat?

hello123792d ago (Edited 3792d ago )

It wasn't buggy, i think it had certain options turned off, that were available, as standard on the 360 party chat.

OC_MurphysLaw3792d ago (Edited 3792d ago )

party chat worked but it was clunky. By default the "party chat" was muted when you entered a party. I think they did that because they originally figured most would have Kinect as microphone. But given they ended up shipping the headset I don't think anyone bothered to change that. Additionally the way the party system worked was different than on the 360. If you were a party leader...EVERYONE in party chat was pulled along to follow you into whatever game you were looking to play instead of you being able to decline an invite for the game and just be in the party chatting while playing a different game.

You've Enjoyed Game Pass' Day-One Releases; Now It's Time To Pay The Piper

As exciting as Game Pass' Day-One releases are, sustaining it all is easier said than done; the price hike was all but inevitable.

LG_Fox_Brazil1d 5h ago

Ain't paying jack. MS were the ones who put themselves into this situation

Jin_Sakai1d 5h ago

No thanks. I’ll stick with PlayStation and Nintendo.

InUrFoxHole7h ago

I'll pay. Not getting day 1 with psn or nin

Obscure_Observer1d ago

Imo, Gamepass is just too good to ignore so I don´t give damn about the price hike.

As an Ultimate subscriber since day one, I´ll stick with Ultimate and play many of the most exciting and amazing upcoming AAA games from both XGS and third party developers day one!

Let´s go!

purple10112h ago

imagine subscribing for all these years in wait for greatness, then being served up Luke warm Starfail and Redfail and a bug filled Forza 8, with less tracks than the older one,

all while paying $15, for months on end,

PhillyDonJawn9h ago

You forgot getting fed Outerworlds, Gears, Forza Horizon, Halo, Stalker, Ori, MLB, Yakuza, Doom eternal, Ea access. sound like good eating to me

DivineHand1259h ago(Edited 9h ago)

It's mostly day-one 3rd party releases on Game Pass. Xbox sparsely releases 1st party titles as you all know. Several day-one titles are being released this month and none of them are 1st party

Reaper22_8h ago

Don't kid yourself. Forza is the best in the genre and gamepass is still the best deal out there. You sony guys know that because you're so emotional over this stuff. Microsoft is in your head. First with the purchase of Activision and then with the latest showcase. But don't fret. Everything is gonna be OK. Ive heard that PS Home is planning to come back next year. Possibly in VR. Now that sounds interesting.

Lightning777h ago

@Divine few Months later it's all about 1st party again, yet wasn't the case at the beginning of the the year, man I wonder why..... That argument came right back around in no time, didn't take long. Hell I been hearing that almost a year now it's been about 3rd party.

Then wants Indy and Avowed drop it'll be about 3rd party right.

No consistency just pure clownery.

What about those of us who are predominantly Nintendo or PC? I still think it's a meh service, but I also didn't see much point upgrading from PS Essential either.

What price would be too high for you? Is there such a thing?
