Twitch streaming also coming to PS4

Xbox One has been touting Twitch integration since E3, but Sony is finally responding with its own Twitch announcement. As expected, access to the service requires a simple touch of the DualShock 4's "Share" button.

As previously announced, Twitch features will be available for free--no Plus membership required. (Twitch will require a Gold subscription on Xbox One, however.)

"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 Sony's Shuhei Yoshida in a press release. "Twitch's gamer-focused community combined with our strong portfolio of innovative PS4 titles, will help define next generation gameplay and community engagement."
