    Xbox One Twitch broadcast video confirms 720p, 30fps streaming

    Microsoft's Major Nelson has been fiddling around with the latest iteration of Xbox One's Twitch app, due to arrive on 11th March. Have you got room in your life for just over an hour of Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, running at a cool 30 frames a second in 720p? There's the embed, if you do.
    Thanks to Reddit user rotj for confirming the frame rate and resolution. Here are a few other factoids: the updated Twitch app will automatically archive your broadcasts if you choose, and supports chat via either Kinect or any Xbox One-capable headset. If you're using Kinect, you can also display a picture-in-picture video of yourself playing the game in the corner of the screen.

    According to Xbox vice president of marketing Yusuf Mehdi, the Xbox One's Twitch app is decisively superior to that offered by the PS4. "That's a very certain type of experience," he said of Sony's offering. "For us, we thought that was too limiting for what our fans would want. Our fans really want the full next-gen service, so that's why we decided to take our time, do it right and have it come out in this fashion."
    To initiate a stream, just say "Xbox, broadcast" while playing a game. You can also join a broadcaster's party while watching their stream. Here are some shots of the interface.

    You do not need to be seen or heard to broadcast.

    And why are there 2 of the exact same threads made?? I am closing this one and linking the other thread.
