  • Live Gameplay Streaming Delayed Until 2014 on Xbox One

    Though the PlayStation 4 launched with live gameplay streaming, it seems as though the same features will be delayed until 2014 on the Xbox 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.

    Perhaps the oddest thing here, as mentioned in their blog post about the Twitch integration with Xbox One, is that they are going to tie in achievements to viewing streams.

    • Standing Room Only will have you watching a stream with 100,000 other simultaneous viewers
    • Watch one hour of live video on Twitch to become a Newcomer
    • Watch 10 hours of live video on Twitch for Competitive
    • Watch 100 hours of live video on Twitch for Best Viewer
    • Watch one hour of live video on Twitch channels that have less than 10 viewers to be the Hipster
    • Watch 10 hours of live video on Twitch channels that have less than 10 viewers and become the Talent Scout
    • Max Bandwidth is received by watching a single channel on Twitch for more than eight hours consecutively
    • Around The Clock is exactly that, just watch at least one minute of live video on Twitch in each hour of a full day
    • Prime Time, simply watch a total of 10 hours of live video on Twitch between peak viewing hours from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m., on a weekday
    A few of those seem really, really terrible. There shouldn't be any achievements tied to watching streams.
