Twitch streaming also coming to PS4

Sony has announced Twitch integration for the PS4, triggered with the press of the DualShock 4's Share button, as a free service.


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."

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
