    PSU underestimates Ustream

    I'm not going to say much else. I just think you guys could be doing a lot of community events on there. Twitch is pointless, you guys need to get your people on this and get your writers, bloggers, vloggers whoever works for PSU, on there. even if you guys can do one stream a month and make it into an event, I could see it being fairly successful.

    Please consider this.

    We have regular Twitch streams happening on the front page. At least we did. There wasn't that much community interest when we launched it unfortunately. Moving forward though I'd like to see sub cultures for streaming, sharefactory and photomode type stuff once we migrate forums.

    i made a similar suggestion earlier, twitch is about gameplay, what i'm talking about is ustream where you can have the staff interacting with the audience in real time.

    Ustream isn't cheap, its at least $100 per month for ad free broadcasting.

    ITs free everywhere but advert supported, so if someone didn't pay for pro subscription then the viewers will have to watch adverts before they joined the stream. Kind of a better system for things like this, but it isnt cheap.
    If using a PS4 then the quality is very low, 540p.

    i think you're missing the point. it's not about the p or the adverts (this site has them too remember?), it's about the interaction.

    Im not missing anything, just pointing out its expensive.
    I can block the ads on ustream and Twitch and on this site when viewing on my PC, but on PS4 or Xbox its not possible.
    Would be better if the streamer had a pro sub so no adverts would be present when people tuned in.

    I turned off my adblocker and clicked a few streams on both Twitch and ustream and every one I go a 20second advert when I loaded one up. TI got annoying.

    oh yea definitely and if they want to go pro, that's fine, i'm just saying, the idea itself should be looked at. if there was a PSU event on Ustream, i'll definitely be there.

    How do you get on that super selective list anyway? I inquired about it back when I played Watch_Dogs 24/7 but was never told. Though got no interest in it anymore but still curious.

    It's not really super selective, interested parties need only get in contact with Steven who can give you the stream code. I've never streamed so I dont know exactly how it technically works but its quite easy. However I realised that we probably don't have this functionality with the new front page.
