Plans for Twitch TV on PS Vita?

10 replies 8842 views Edited Aug 12, 2013

I spend a lot of time on the intenet and playing games be it on my PS Vita, PS3, or computer. I like to use them in combinations to optimize performance and entertainment and over the recent weeks it has become an issue watching twitch and gaming. I was wondering if there were any plans to bring twitch to PS Vita and if not then whether or not plans could be putinto action. Go Playstation!

Microsoft has cut a deal with Twitch that makes it so that only Microsoft gets Twitch. Playstation and Nintendo get Ustream, which is a decent service, but its nowhere near as good as Twitch. Oh well.

as a optional Streaming/watching stream service then it would be good for PS3 and PS4.

 

as for vita. vita pretty much needs it own Recording Device added to the Vita and done. if not a regular Twitch.TV app to watch is great...or Ustream app... meh

Ustream is as good as Twitch...  it's just not as popular.  Or as focused on gaming.

 

The quality of the streaming really depends on the person doing the streaming.

The PS4 can use Twitch to stream gameplay... Does that mean that Microsoft no longer has an exclusive deal with Twitch?

I could see the Vita getting an app to VIEW twitch, but as for streaming to twitch, the PS Vita does not have the hardware required (game capture card) to do so.
