The PS4 should be able to stream to twitch.tv NOT JUST Ustream.tv

Hello, how is everybody doing? my name is InventorBLADES and I am new to the playstation forums. I have already replied to someone on this subject but decided to Post my own message as well as to include more information on this matter. I am a broadcaster on Twitch.tv, my concern is about Playstation 4 being able to stream directly to Ustream.tv, which is fine, but why is there no mention about the possibility of it being able to stream to twitch.tv. Twitch.tv is a popular website dedicated to streaming ONLY gaming content. It is very well organized, has a user friendly GUI, and its community keeps growing year after year. The gaming world is already divided amongst consoles and in my opinion it would be a bad idea to have yet another divide. Please consider the Playstation 4 being able to stream directly to Twtich.tv. I alone can't convince these 2 companies to come to some kind of an agreement, but if everyone...from both communities voiced their thoughts perhaps they would consider. If you have any concerns on this topic, please reply to this topic, post it on twitter, call playstation and/or write to twitch.tv. Do not let them divide us....think about it.

I hope you are keeping tabs on your thread.  Please PM me a link where it verify's sony won't let twitch be livestreamed.  On of my fellow MVPs hosts a lot of community stuff and uses twitch to livestream it so I was thinking that if you can verify it is true that him and I can maybe try and make some noise about it for us all.

Hello PLYMCO_PILGRIM and thanks for your reply. I came back to check on my thread, although im not sure exactly how to PM you directly on here but ill check in after i write this. At this point my concern is pure speculation but since there was no mention that PS4 would be able to broadcast to twitch.tv it leaves that question in limbo. I am not sure whats going on behind closed doors, but lets be realistic about this, Playstation and Xbox are the two main consoles of todays generation, no disrespect to the Wii. These 2 consoles have in my opinion created a great divide in the gaming world, at best the gaming world was cut in half dividing all gamers equally, and its kind of sad because in all honesty and with respect to both of these consoles, who knows who you might have met if the gaming world was united in one community.

 

Im sure these 2 companies will seek different means in order to convince more gamers towards buying their consoles thus keeping their gaming community population as high as possible, this would include anything from offering better hardware, to exclusive games, better console capabilities, and now it seems even the social structure of these systems. Now, here is where mine and everyones concern should lie, would Xbox and Playstation be seeking exclusivity between their consoles direct streaming capabilities with these 2 websites, Xbox with twitch.tv, and playstation with Ustream.tv? Would Playstation 4 and Xbox one be seeking EXCLUSIVITY with these partnerships? This is an issue that must be addressed beforehand and openly so there are no surprises in the future and before anything gets set in stone. I believe that BOTH of these consoles should have the abilitiy to stream to different websites, much like how Xsplit is designed at the moment. This would put the power in the gamers hand on where they should be socially plugged.

 

I just did some searching and will include some links, but even with these links it still leaves you guessing as to how its all going to play out for the gaming world. I really don't think people are aware as to how important it is that these two consoles leave it up to the gamer as to where they should broadcast and be socially connected.

Unfortunately I am a small broadcaster on twitch.tv who has been working vigorously for the past year and a half on twitch.tv to grow my channel, youtube, twitter, etc...,  The problem is that after a year and a half I have roughly 1350 followers on twitch.tv, 100 followers on twitter, and more or less 150 subscribers on youtube. That said, my social reach is very limited making it very difficult for me to reach out to the masses so that this issue can be addressed and hopefully geared in a direction that would for once benefit the gamer and not just big companies.

 

Sorry the post is so long and thank you ahead of time for any help or information you can provide. If your ever on twitch.tv feel free to stop in. Im a huge Assassin's Creed fan and I play/broadcast mostly Assassin's Creed 3 Multiplayer.

Wherever we lay our egg it shall be golden. Ustream will become better than twitch with 5-7 million PS4's uploading content when Twitch sees how much revenue the loss to Ustream they shall rue the day they stood again PS. All hail Yoshida.

There you have it. I also heard that someone spoke to a Sony representative asking about twitch integration and he said "we have no comment at this time." Take that how you will but I have a feeling we'll see twitch in some form or fashion on PS4.

I believe Microsoft probably had some sort of deal where twitch was payed A LOT of money to be exclusive to them. There is still a chance that YouTube streaming/uploading could be coming to the PS4 although it's not confirmed and we probably won't know until closer to launch.
