Twitch streaming headed to Xbox One in March

twitch_broadcasting

Originally announced back at E3, Microsoft generated a lot of excitement when it announced that Twitch streaming would be coming to Xbox One. However, just days before the system launched, Microsoft backtracked, saying that while a Twitch app for watching streams would be available, Twitch streaming would not make it in time for the console’s launch.

With Titanfall, arguably the biggest exclusive for Xbox One this year, ready to drop on March 11, Microsoft has put the pedal to the metal in preparation for its launch beginning with the updates to the friends and party system on March 4 and announcing that Twitch streaming will finally be headed to Xbox One on March 11 to coincide with the release of Titanfall.

Players will be able to begin streaming any game after March 11 by simply using the phrase “Xbox, Broadcast.” Also, Twitch on Xbox One boasts the most comprehensive Twitch streaming experience on consoles by allowing for archiving of streams, picture-in-picture video feed and audio commentary, the ability to snap Twitch chat while broadcasting, as well as allowing viewers to send friend or party requests or even join in the host’s game. Note that only Xbox Live Gold members will have the ability to stream games.

Twitch streaming on Xbox One still a few months away

Twitch_Logo_highres

Twitch streaming for Xbox One was announced back in June, allowing Xbox One players to stream the games they were playing to one of the biggest game-streaming services for fans around the world to see. However, right before the Xbox One released in November it was announced that Twitch streaming would not be available at launch.

Microsoft has been quiet about its Twitch streaming plans since that time, but Twitch has recently opened up with the following tweet:

A Microsoft representative told Polygon “We understand that the broadcasting component of Twitch is very important, and it is a major focus on our roadmap as we work to ensure it is seamlessly implemented into our Xbox One experience over the coming months.”

Twitch streaming to be integrated with Xbox One

Twitch_Logo_highres

Twitch, the video streaming service and community will be coming to Xbox One. The service will allow Xbox Live Gold members to stream games using the hardware integrated the console. The Twitch community, a sub-community to Justin.Tv, currently broadcasts gaming events and tournaments across multiple platforms.“Live broadcasting has continued to grow in popularity, but sharing your console experience has never been this easy,” said Twitch CEO Emmett Shear in a press release. “Xbox Live Gold is enabling the ability to both upload your gameplay directly to Twitch and to stream Twitch content on Xbox One. The impact of this level of console integration will be a true game changer.”

It is expected, but not confirmed, that Twitch will be integrated in to many, if not all of the Xbox One games.

Minecraft documentary to air Saturday on Xbox Live

Saturday night, Xbox Live Gold subscribers the world over will have the opportunity to view the world premiere of Minecraft: The Story of Mojang, a documentary detailing the creation of one of the most popular games of the last few years. The film follows Minecraft creator Markus Persson after he rose to fame last year and examines what goes into building a video game company.

Gold subscribers in the US, UK, Ireland, Belgium, Portugal, Austria, France, Finland and Sweden can view the film free of charge on Saturday; it airs 8 p.m. EST in the US and 8 p.m. CET in Europe, according to Joystiq. The documentary was a Kickstarter baby, with production company 2 Player Productions raising $210,000 in crowdfunded cash in Mardh 2011 (a good deal more than the requested $150,000). 2 Player has previously created films for Double Fine Productions and a chiptune documentary.

The trailer for the film, as well as local listings, can be found under the Minecraft tile on the Xbox dashboard (though we’ve also included the trailer above because we like you guys that much).
