Twitch delayed on Xbox One until 2014

xboxtwitchOne of the most anticipated features for the Xbox One has been delayed until 2014. Broadcasting live from the Xbox One was a key feature gamers were looking forward to but it has been delayed just 2 days before the release of the console. Owners of the Xbox One can still use twitch to view channels and live video but will have to wait to broadcast their gameplay live from the console. In a post made earlier today it was mentioned that “We know the ability to instantly broadcast gameplay is something the gaming community is excited about, and we are too. We are working to ensure the initial Twitch on Xbox One broadcasting experience meets the expectations of the Twitch community, so while this feature won’t be available right away, we’ll let you know as soon as it is ready. Our goal is to deliver it during the first part of 2014.”

 

In the meantime Xbox One owners will still be able to record up to 5 minutes of gameplay and upload it to xbox live or their own private skydrive accounts. Though it probably won’t hurt sales, the lack of twitch broadcasting does come at a critical point for early adopters since PS4 has uStream and Twitch working with most reviewers so far praising the feature.

  1. Just a heads up you are still able to stream on twitch.tv with your current capture set up and using your own twitch account. This delay is just referring to streaming from just the console.
