Twitch and Titanfall hit Xbox One to broadcast your 'bot-blasting
Twitch and Titanfall explode onto the Microsoft Xbox One to share your button-bashing 'bot-blasting before you can say, "Xbox, broadcast."
All you have to do is say to your console "Xbox, broadcast," and you'll be sharing your killshots and achievements with the world straight away, along with picture-in-picture video of your face alongside your gameplay and an audio feed of your pithy comments and scintillating insights.
To get started, you need to sign up for an account at twitch.tv. Then fire up your console and download the Twitch app.
If you want everyone to be able to check out your gaming chops, dive into the app's settings: in your Profile, set your presence to "Online"; under "Privacy and Online Safety", set "See if you're online" to "Everyone", and "Broadcast gameplay" to "Allow."
Take a look at Microsoft's official blog post for more instructions on sharing your gameplay and getting your Kinect connected to Twitch.
Although Twitch is free, you do need to pay for Xbox Live Gold to broadcast.
The rise of the hotly-anticipated game Titanfall is big news for the Xbox One. Available in the US today and here in Britain on Friday. It's set to be the first killer title for Microsoft's new console, which recently added improved matchmaking, party chat, and upgraded friends features in time for the game's launch.
Alongside Twitch broadcasting, the Xbox One is also adding Machinima Wingman, which provides tips as you play.
