Microsoft has announced that their Xbox One console will be on the receiving end of the Twitch gameplay streaming capability this coming March 11th, which ain’t too shabby a date either, considering how that is when it will be in time for Titanfall. Just how does the Twitch gameplay streaming work in the first place? First of all, you will need to call out “Xbox, Broadcast,” and the system will right away start to stream, and when you decide to call out “Stop Broadcast”, it will end it. Apart from that, Kinect will also enable picture-in-picture video feeds as well as audio commentary via its array of microphones and cameras.
As for the streaming, it will be able to function from just about any source, and this would include its current market arch nemesis, the Sony PS4. In a nutshell, you will be able to enjoy just about any and every content that connects to Twitch. In addition, one is also able to archive gameplay as well as gain access to any archived Twitch content directly from the console. Apart from that, Twitch would also enable gamers to carry out a chat with other streamers, in addition to joining in on their games. Chat streams will also offer support for emotes and badges in order to keep up with the times, now how about that?
