    Xbox One Twitch app reported to have 1280x720 streaming video versus 960x540 for PS4

    A new report claims that the upcoming Twitch app update for Microsoft's Xbox One console will not only add the ability to stream live gameplay, but it will do so at a higher resolution and bitrate than the current version found on Sony's PlayStation 4 console.
    A Reddit post from user "rotj" links to a stats page for the Xbox One Twitch app, which recorded information from the stream of Microsoft's own Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb. The stats show that the Xbox One Twitch update will stream live gameplay at a resolution of 1280x720 compared to 960x540 for the current PS4 version. In addition, the bitrate for the Xbox One is close to 2.7Mbps, compared to 1.7Mbps for the PS4. Both display at 30 FPS.
    The Reddit post also says that the Twitch app will allow for Xbox One users to archive any gameplay video stream they create, something that the PS4 cannot do at the moment. People who broadcast game streams will be able to see viewer and chat stats without displaying those numbers to the public. It also won't broadcast audio from any group chats.
    The Twitch app is scheduled to be updated on March 11th, the same day as the Xbox One version of thelong awaited first person shooter Titanfall is to be released.

    Is it awkward that it can stream better resolutions than the actual games?

    I had to do it. hehe...

    I eagerly await the update. One week from today. I hope.

    Yep. So resolution suddenly matters now? But 1080p vs 720p in games doesn't? Love those double standards. lol

    looks like Xbox will be the goto console for those who want to use Twitch.

    i'd guess this and what looks likely to be game of the year are going to get used together an awful lot, quite soon.

    Also, I thought we were led to believe by the OP that resolutions don't matter. I guess it doesn't here - which it's been posted...

    Seriously, a jokes a $#@!ing joke but this is beyond it. He didn't even comment, he merely posted news and you get all balls up on him.

    The double standards are if YOU posted a positive article about the PS4.
    Then I guess we get to $#@! about what you posted?

    So could it be that MS paid Twitch more money to get 720p?

    I believe MS did have twitch develop their app. Or work closely with them, I read it. Sony did their own.

    We have sony first version. I'm sure ours will be updated as well among many other things.

    Analogy:

    Admartian doesn't think driving is the best thing for transportation to work. Admartian goes back and forth about how the discussion of transportation to work is a moot point anyway, as long as we get there.

    This goes on for a while.


    Then one day, Admartian comes across an article that says public transportation to work and cycling are better than driving (thus favouring/going against driving = favouring

    Admartian leaves the link and that's all. And says nothing else.

    The fact that Admartian leaves that link alone, contradicts his previous point on how "it doesn't matter how we get to work" because it's proving a point that Admartian favours (i.e. not driving).


    -------

    Switch public transportation etc with resolutions and PS4 vs XB1 - then you get why people get annoyed...


    Back on topic, I guess this is another 'quick win' for the XB1.

    I expect any possible news that the PS4 is patching the same functionality to their Twitch app (of resolution) to be posted by the same OP though.

    So your saying that resolution of games is the same as discussing resolution of a live stream?

    So you're putting words in mouths now/again.

    The issue is resolutions. The case here, it favours the xbox. That's why it's posted. Because it's (trying) to refute that the Xbox can't do certain res.

    No mynd, you can't bend the argument this time. It's pretty clear cut what is being done.

    There's no techno-babble for this, no snidey "i'll lighten the mood with a joke" remark to deflect the topic at hand, no twisting. It's what it is.

    That Tui ad is clearly customised - why is it bothering you so much?

    Firstly there is no absolutely no link between in game res and what the twitch apps decide to stream at. You gave me an analogy of transport, which means yes, you do see it as the same topic. I dint put any words in your mouth.

    How on hairy hell does what a game get viewed at by you friends over a compressed live stream have or affect how you view the game on your console?
    You may as well draw link between the word "res" and point a finger at it.

    You say he is trying to refute that xbox cant do a certain res (1080p) how again does this show that exactly? By showing it can do 720p res streaming?

    They are two completely separate topics, one is what you can play a game at, the other is what you friends can view it at.
    I don't see how both being sub 1080p makes any significant impact or point or post or anything regarding double standards.
    It like being anti-cow milk and then posting a pro horses for riding article.

    But you know, lets $#@! down his throat for posting it because it has the word res in eh?

    Its a mildly interesting feature of the console, compared to a rather more important aspect (actual in game res).

    Drawing a link between the two? Weak sauce.

    Cool. Can't wait to stream some KI matches and hopefully some.tournaments if they patch in a KOTH mode into KI.

    I streamed Injustice this weekend and had a blast doing a mini tournent for the PS4.

    Will this ever stop?

    IF you are so arsed about counting pixels and frame rates there are devices that play 1080p 60FPS (and beyond) all day everyday and have been able to for many years.
