    It'll be at least a few more months before Twitch direct broadcasting is available on Xbox One, according to the video streaming site.

    A message on Twitter from the Twitch Support account reveals that despite previous hopes we'd see the service launch on Microsoft's console early in 2014, this is now looking unlikely.


    Though Xbox Live Gold Members have been able to watch all content on Twitch since the console launched back on November 22, it appears there's still a bit of a wait in store before they'll be able to contribute directly from the console. In the mean time, the console does still have its own native video sharing service that allows users to record, edit and upload videos to Xbox Live.


    Sony's PS4 currently offers livestreaming via both Twitch and Ustream and, despite initial reservations that console gamers wouldn't embrace the services, it appears the demand is definitely there. A recent announcement by Sony revealed that 1.7 million gameplay broadcasts have been streamed so far across the services, accounting for more than 55 million total minutes broadcast. Twitch has also gone on record to say that 20 percent of its users are streaming via PS4.

    When Twitch direct broadcasting does arrive on Xbox One later this year, it'll be interesting to see how much of the site's overall content is streamed from consoles as opposed to PC, as it certainly seems like this is something console gamers are ready to get behind.

      Its a shame because the PS4 has it but the camera is terrible if you want more than 1 person in the shot as there's no wide angle if you want 2 people in it you have to litterally have to have each others head together were as the xbox you could have 10 people infront of its massive camera angle, ironic really

      MS better get their Fecal Leaking together. Playstation has been kicking their ass since the announcement of the consoles. Examples: upgrading HDD, 3rd party headsets, More games(including free games), better hardware, Smoother OS, and more friendly with Devs. I have a X1 and it was a gift, if I would have bought it myself I would be having some serious regret right now

      I agree with you. The Xbox 360 dominated the last gen, but MS are getting left in Sony's massive dust cloud right now.
      I have a so called Xbox in my living room that seems to me like a cable box i can play a <strong>few </strong>games on.
