I didn't see any discussion on this yet, so I thought I'd ask. This is mostly based out of general curiousity
I've been streaming to Ustream/Livestream/Twitch/Justin forever for my (now) wife and some friends, who don't all share the same taste in games that I do, but have interest in seeing them played. I thought it was a novelty for years, and yet somehow my near decade old playthrough of MGS: The Twin Snakes had hundreds of views before Justin.tv migrated stuff to Twitch. Considering for many years I restricted my channel from showing up in the channel guide, hundreds of views was a shock to me.
With the launch of the new consoles, thousands (if not more) of new broadcasters will begin streaming from their PS4 and XBOs.
I'm going to keep my capture card and equipment I use currently, as it will allow me to continue to stream older systems. I will randomly fire up Guardian War on my 3DO once in a blue moon, so why not share it.
Depending on how robust the native streaming is for the XBO and PS4, however, I may forgo hooking them up to my capture setup. That being said, the first time a game does Sony's publicly stated "some parts of games may disallow streaming" (or Microsoft's non-publicly stated but identical policy in their TOS legalese for Twitch), they're going to be hooked back up. We'll have to wait and see if or when that first happens.
I know that there are other GB users that stream, heck, a weekend or so ago, we saw dozens stream for Charity. Are you all going to keep your current capture set up or get rid of it? What's your line of thought behind your decision?
This is kind of both for the XBO and PS4, so I didn't want to create separate threads in both subforums. However, if the mods feel it should be moved let me know so I can keep it in mind for the future.
