Twitch live broadcasting not available day one on Xbox One, coming 2014


Microsoft's Xbox One will not be able to push live broadcasts of gameplay to the internet at launch, Microsoft has confirmed.

"We are working to ensure the initial Twitch on Xbox One broadcasting experience meets the expectations of the Twitch community. 

"While this feature won't be available right away, we'll let you know as soon as it is ready. Our goal is to deliver it during the first part of 2014." 

To make up for this disappointing news, Microsoft has released a new video of the Twitch App in action. This app will allow gamers to view Twitch TV on their console and will be available at launch. In fact Xbox One owners can even use this app to watch PS4 owners streaming their games, which is kind of funny.

What's especially embarassing about this is that MS has been trumpeting Twitch streaming as a bulletpoint for their console since E3 in June, whereas Sony only mentioned supporting it as an aside at Gamescom in August and they had full streaming functionality up and running perfectly at the PS4's launch last week in the US. No real excuses here.

Both MS and Sony are guilty of advertising features like this then giving it the whole but not at launch it was the same with Sony and there suspending game and being able to take over a friends game to help them.

While Sony only mentioned twich at a later date, they had announced that the PS4 would stream output from around its inital reveal, just initial plans didn't mention twitch. Sounds like the Xbox delay is with streaming output to web, given that it can output locally and get streams from twitch.

IM not being biased or nothin as in gettin the mega bundle on 29th and im proper excited , its just it has less features than the ps3 at moment and in my eyes next gen should be a step up all the same features with new content added , but some content is coming at a later date and its the same with xbox one, and obviously the small problem of faulty units due to the high manufacture in such a short time thing, really hope i get a goodun lol , anyway just all feels a little rushed but who cares 9 days and im smashin killzone lol

I agree with Jay everything that both MS and Sony have announced should have been ready for launch be it twitch or the ability to suspend the game, unless when it was first announced they said is was not coming till 2014 like the streaming PS3 games was always said to be after launch.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
