E3 2013: Don't Worry, Twitch Could Still Come to PS4

Posted by Sammy Barker

Streaming like a machine

While you’ll be able to broadcast live gameplay from your PlayStation 4 to Ustream, slightly more popular service Twitch is off the cards for the time being. However, despite Microsoft insinuating that it had locked up support with the online streaming site, company vice president of marketing Matthew DiPietro has confirmed that Twitch can go anywhere, and is absolutely not exclusive to the Xbox One.

“The strategy for Twitch is twofold right now: we want to make it as easy as possible to broadcast games and we want to make it easy as possible to view games,” he told Joystiq. Expect the service to expand to the PS4 at some point in the future, then. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if talks weren’t already underway.

After E3 Im suprised Microsoft are able to lock much down to the Xbox One with all the goodwill n hype surrounding the Ps4. I dont really do anything that would require this service when gameing so it deosnt bother me but Im guessing if you do, then this is a good announcement?

i would love it if twitch streaming was on PS4 but Ustream will do as long as i can stream online and my friends can watch even if they don't have a PS4 then i'll be happy

Well it better come to PS4 ASAP, because honestly the only people who will bother watching Ustream are the ones streaming on it.
