During Microsoft’s E3 press event we learned that the Xbox One has the ability to stream live to the video game streaming service Twitch. The exclusivity of the partnership with Twitch and Microsoft remained a mystery until Twitch’s VP of Marketing Matthew DiPietro spoke with Joystiq.
“The strategy for Twitch is twofold right now: we want to make it as easy as possible to broadcast games and we want to make it easy as possible to view games,” he said on the subject of whether Twitch was an Xbox One exclusive partnership.
It’s now clear that Twitch is hoping to get involved with not just the Xbox One but possibly other consoles. Twitch is also working with developers to integrate streaming into games too.
