Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One won’t support (built in) live streaming on Twitch TV till early 2014. This is a disappointment to many, as the PS4 is able to with one button already. However, if you do own a capture card, then you will be able to stream to any site on day one.

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.

    2014 is only 30 odd days away, no biggie 🙂

    • HenryDF

      “during the first part of 2014”

      That could be any time between January and March, Xbox players could be waiting waiting for 4 months.

      • BigBuckChuck

        Could be anywhere between January & June 30, if they’re only dividing the year into 2 parts.

      • Shooter

        4 months isn’t that long, I can remember the freaking Ps4 and X1 reveals like it was yesterday and i’m sure people can still use the way they’ve been streaming for the past few years for 4 months or even less lol.

        • HenryDF

          One of the main points of the easy-to-access, integrated streaming was that people who didn’t have the special kit required could stream for the first time. It’s been spoken about for a while, and Sony have managed to do it.

  • HoneyBadger

    fix the game before you start adding features! Increase the Health!

    • HenryDF

      This has nothing to do with Ghosts, it’s an issue with the Xbox One.

    • AverageJoe

      Yeah, im just praying TitanFall rescues me from the disappointment of Ghosts. the real COD developers.

      • HenryDF

        The real CoD developers? You mean the IW developers who left, while completely disregarding Treyarch and the current IW team? Ugh…can’t you just appreciate the effort going into these games?

        • Jon Cameron

          You must not have kept up with what happened if you aren’t on Respawn’s side.

          • HenryDF

            I’m not saying that I’m not on Respawn’s side in terms of the legal issues, but to call the Respawn developers “the real CoD developers” is pathetic.

          • Shooter

            They are the real COD developers for the most part, since most of Respawn’s team are the people who created the first COD and of course COD4. Also to be perfectly honest, IW’s games have went down hill since they all left with MW3 being shit and Ghosts being better than MW3 but still nothing special.

          • Rated-R619

            Vince Zampella and Jason West, creatoes of MoH and Infinity Ward and CoD, they created CoD4. They are the bests.

          • RazR

            Its weird how you see loads of games that get bad press and bad reviews yet when you play them yourself you enjoy them. And vice versa. E.g COD, bf3/4, ps3 controller. Thats why I find reviews mostly useless; they’re opinionated and so don’t really apply to me. I bought cod ghosts despite everything and still like it (except for the maps). In fact I like every cod I’ve played, which is from black ops 1

      • Mitch

        LMAO, MW2. Probably the most unbalanced FPS shooter out there.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Correct they did make the original Call of Duty game, but if they were true to the franchise they wouldn’t have left for Activision not giving them royalties(Royalties such as expensive cars, brand new technology etc.) They are no longer the real COD developers, they are the real Titanfall developers.

    • mike

      lol, this isn’t a Call of Duty feature, its a Microsoft feature #FailFish

  • Josh

    Xbox one is getting more disappointing by the day – they really know how to please their customers

    • mike

      have you even seen the Livestreaming capability of the PS4? embarrassing to say the least. hopefully the delay is for a good reason, and XB1 produces quality streams.

      • HenryDF

        At least Sony have managed to deliver Twitch live-streaming, as promised, rather than bunking it off until next year. And to be honest, the PS4 quality really isn’t poor – I’ve seen it and it looks fine.

        • xSupaScopa

          Next year is a strong statement. it will be out in January or February. And to be honest, having so many people on Twitch, is in my opinion bad. Eventually it will become extremely laggy on there.

          • Steven

            For those of you who are hating on the PS4, check out many of the polls online and elsewhere. By the looks of it, the PS4 will easily outsell the XBone (Not trying to sound like a fanboy).


          • xSupaScopa

            That is a poll. That is people’s opinions. Not facts.

        • Yagermeister

          You’re going to tell me that quality of built in streaming on the Ps4 is “FINE”? It’s fucking garbage and everyone knows the best way to stream console gaming is to get the external capture devices. Elgato, HDPVR, Avermedia etc..

          • HenryDF

            Everyone knows the best way is to use a capture device, but you’re ignoring the fact that not everyone can afford one. I certainly won’t be able to afford one after coughing up for my PS4.

            I’ve given the built in streaming a go, and yes, I’m telling you it’s fine in terms I was expecting (ie. I wasn’t expecting PVR-quality streaming), but with good internet speeds, it is impressively good quality.

      • noah

        not true ive seen plenty nice ones it all depends on peoples internet connection

      • Shooter

        Agreed. Most commentators have said the the PS4 Live Streaming sucks and they still prefer to use Twitch the normal way. Also if you never do live streams, then why would this bother you?

      • Josh

        At least they have it on day one. Do you really think it’s going to better on the XB1 with those specs? I don’t think so – I think you’ll find it will be better on the PS4 anyway

        • jordanxbrookes

          Xbox One specs are basically the same as PS4 so I don’t know what you’re on about.

          • Quinton Aj Stevens

            You’re far from right, bud. The GPU and the RAM is superior on the PS4 in contrast with the Xbone.

          • xSupaScopa

            But is the GPU and the RAM superior enough to make a huge difference? no. also the PS4 has some of the worst exclusives. Xbox has Forza 5, DR3, Titanfall, etc. Oh also, Xbox Ones have not broken on prerelease like every single PS4.

          • Reno

            Forza 5 is a slighty prettier Forza 4 with LESS tracks and cars, Dead Rising 3 has gotten less then favourable reviews and can’t even maintain a decent FPS, Titanfall will be on PC and 360, and EA confrimed today that only TItanfall 1 will be exclusive, and I like how you didn’t list this one, but Lococycle has gotten multiple scores under a 5/10. Killzone SF stands at a 7.5ish, Knack was a game designed from the ground up for kids, and so far people who bought the game love it, Resogun is not only free on PS4 with PS+(which you get a month of free), but is also one of the highest rated games accross all next gen games.And we have inFAMOUS coming out in March which stands besides BF4 and Killzone as some of the best looking next gen games. And a new Uncharted just got announced. As for the GPU and RAM, yes, it makes a huge difference. Killzone Shadow Fall, a PS4 exclusive is one of the best looking games ever released. AC4 on PS4-now 1080p, 900p on xbone. CoD-1080 on PS4, 720p on Xbone. BF4 on PS4-900p, 720p on Xbone. And Sony has sold 1 million Ps4s. And the failure rate as of now is 1%, which is amazing for new hardware. And you know why no broken Xbones? because the things not out yet dumbass.

          • xSupaScopa

            Who rated Killzone? IGN? You mean they paid IGN to give a good review? hahaha. Also I have seen a bunch of videos saying that killzone is AMAZING… but only graphically. The gameplay sucks. Forza 5 only slightly better? Wow. Just i cannot fathom that stupid statement. You have Uncharted, a game that should have ended with #3. AC4 graphics were increased on PS4 in a day one patch. This will most likely happen with Xbox One. Only 1% failure. lets do the math. 1000000x.01=10000. 10000×400(price)= 4,000,000 $. That is pretty bad. Also you cannot legally record on PS4 at the moment (big issue for YouTubers). And about no broken Xbox ones… several people have received it early and have had 0 issues. The early released PS4s have had many issues. Including not turning on which is a pretty big issue.

      • Mitch

        I’ve watched some PS4 built-in livestreaming, and it looks nice to me. When someone is streaming at high quality, you can’t tell the difference between the built-in feature and a capture card. You obviously need good internet to stream high quality. How big is the delay?
        Also, how do you know how XB1’s stream is? The console isn’t out…

      • Zack

        You must need glasses if you think it’s bad. XB1 will fail more than the abortion your mother tried on you. Stop trying to defend it. Sony won.

  • Shhhaaa

    They need to fix the spawns in free for all!!

    • SoulTaker

      This is not a COD feature it’s a damn Xbox One feature fail much.

    • jordanxbrookes

      As much as I agree with you, this is nothing to do with Call of Duty.

  • iKushtyy

    No worries, I’m not picking up a NextGen console until Feb next year anyways.. Wait for the third or fourth batch, then most of the reliability niggles should be found and eradicated.

  • AmazingSuperHick

    I blame the influx of people streaming on the PS4 for this. Twitch servers are under alot of stress because of this…..

  • Jucyjuice

    In the end it comes down to what is MORE FUN, and to me that’s Xbox(too many issues on ps3/4)

    • fires

      Exactly, everyone talks shit about specs and networks, but at the end of the day, unless the exclusives and your friends are moving over, you stay put. I like PSN exclusives, controller, and many of my friends have it, i really dont give a shit which ones better.

    • Quinton Aj Stevens

      What issues? I haven’t run into any, personally.

  • PS4 nuff said

  • xSupaScopa

    Wow so capture cards are now useless. You can stream to Twitch, save the video and download it. Then edit and upload to YouTube. Shit.

  • Moeen

    In the end, it doesnt matter about the specs and all that stuff, hell I dont even know what half of it means, all that matters is how fun it is, why buy a Xbox if all your friends have a Playstation, and vice versa?

  • Google plus sucks

    Ps4 sucks the D xb1 will beat ps4 big time

    • Xecho

      Please this isn’t the site for that.
