Twitch integration announced for PS4
Twitch's streaming services will not be exclusive to Xbox One. Sony announced today that the world's leading video platform and community for gamers will also be coming to the PlayStation 4.
As such, PS4 users will be able to broadcast their gameplay directly to their Twitch channels, while others will be able to view content directly from the PS4. All of Twitch's broadcast and viewing features will be completely free without any sort of subscription gate.
“PlayStation has a long history of delivering some of the best gaming experiences in the industry and we’re excited to have Twitch available on a console as heavily anticipated as PS4," said Emmett Shear, Twitch CEO. “Through this partnership we are paving the way for every PS4 gamer to become both a broadcaster and an avid spectator of amazing content.”
“Social capabilities are an integral part of PS4, so Twitch will play an important role in delivering a compelling connected experience to PlayStation fans,” said Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios. “Twitch’s gamer-focused community combined with our strong portfolio of innovative PS4 titles, will help define next generation gameplay and community engagement.”
