Previously Sony had announced they were partnering with Ustream and it seemed that Microsoft had locked up Twitch for themselves. However, it doesn’t seem that was an exclusive deal. Sony announced today at its Gamescom press conference that Twitch was also coming to the PlayStation 4 this fall.
It is one of 20 media apps coming that will be available on the PlayStation 4. You will be able to stream your game on your Twitch channel with a press of the “Share” button on the DualShock 4 controller. You can watch your favorite channels with the viewing app.
Twitch is a huge presence in the eSport community, but also the most popular game streaming service on the web. And it will be coming to a next generation console near you.
