Twitch, a platform for video game livestreams, will be bringing its service to the PlayStation 4, Sony has announced.
“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.”
By simply hitting the “share” button on the controller, PS4 system users will be able to broadcast their gameplay directly to Twitch, where they’ll be able to share what they’re doing and view content others are sharing.
“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.”
