But but, hot Forza 5 action.

I hate to be "that guy" but a huge multiplayer shooter + streaming service launching on the same day?

Glad i'm not a server tech for Microsoft.

This is much better than the written PR from the Twitch CEO where he told bullshit making it sound like all of these things were exclusive to the Xbone (joining broadcaster, seeing comments, seeing viewer counts, etc).

The actual big thing here is that MS moneyhatted Twitch into enabling archivals..?

I think the Twitch guys are probably the ones that will be sweating bullets. I doubt this adds any extra load on the MS side, and the servers seemed pretty solid in that Titanfall beta.

@sneterz: You can bet your ass Race Night is going to be streamed.

I like that UI better than the PS4's. But I still wish there was an option, at least I didn't see one, to play the game in full screen. Why not use SmartGlass, or the PS app, to allow us to view the chat instead of taking up a quarter of the screen?

I need more stock video of people saying 'Xbox broadcast' please. I didn't quite understand how that whole thing worked.

This chat has emotes and PS4 doesn't soooooo Xbox: 1 - PS4: 0

EDIT: also I need the people to look at the camera like it's The Office (seriously is that how connect works?)

also what's the white stick all about? This whole thing is dumb. Why is this an ad?

I mistook the thumbnail for Carmageddon. Sadly it was just Forza.

Being able to join a game you are watching is a very cool thing indeed. Though doubt I will use it that much, or successfully anyway.

Reading comments for this is depressing. Come on guys

Kinda over Twitch on XB1. I just want them to add some damn support for external hard drives!

@rmanthorp: ughhhhh, that is such garbage.......

Posted by FuriousJodo

Nice, they are really going all out to try to make the Titanfall launch kind of have everything.

Posted by HS_Alpha_Wolf

Man, I would have loved to have this ready to go for the Titanfall Beta, but such as life. Really just glad to have it ready before the Oct. 25th Extra Life marathons. Now I should have plenty of content to stream when everyone else in Dota 2 has fallen asleep

Follow the money guys, follow the money.

Yeah the last thing I want to see is more Titanfall.

Will definitely be turning on that Race Night stream though!

Cool. It's a nice feature on PS4. I'm glad the XBox crowd is getting it too. I'm scared for the Twitch servers. They seem to be held together with string and masking tape at this point. Sometimes the delay is up to a minute recently, which kills a lot of interaction with your audience through chat. I used to like broadcasting things like XCom and FTL, letting the audience make decisions. That doesn't work as well with the forced delay.

That being said, it's cool that the feature is coming for XB1. They're really going all out on this Titanfall launch. I hope it works out for them. There will definitely be a huge spotlight on XBox March 11th. Hopefully the servers are in order for a smooth launch.

On PS4? You can. Go into the options after you hit share, and there will be a check box for full screen. I use the Twitch app on my tablet to monitor chat, and play in full screen.

Still won't be able to watch premium GB live streams through it.

Guy on the stream says "xbox broadcast" and all of the folk watching on their xbox's, xbox's start broadcasting them watching the guy's xbox broadcast..

I'm glad this is coming for Titanfall, but fuck me, these interpretations of what people are like when they're sitting at home playing games are ridiculous.

You're doing it wrong. Be mad and angry and fanboyish damn it.

Glad this is finally coming. I just hope it works well and it wasn't rushed out. They did say early next year though so time table makes sense.

I'll be streaming me talking chemtrails and playing killer instinct.

Why does it take Titanfall to get everything working that should have been there at or very close to launch?

Posted by Davvyk

@patoday: Some devs claimed before launch that the console was initially aiming for a march launch and it was moved forward once microsoft learnt of sonys launch date.

Who knows if any of it is true but it makes sense that the system seems to be getting towards feature complete for march.

Posted by PatODay

@davvyk: That makes sense. It does seem to be getting to feature complete now.

I guess March 11th will be the big test for the cloud.

Isn't EA co-handling the server stuff for Titanfall or is that all on the PC side of things?

Posted by Residentrevil2

Neat. I probably won't use it, but it's neat that it's finally arriving.

Edited by nickmudry

Looking forward to this. Might end up using this a lot.
