“We find archiving to be an exciting part of the broadcast experience”
Earlier today via an interview with Joystiq, streaming service, Twitch confirmed that they intend to add an archive element to their services when it comes to the PlayStation 4. As things currently stand, players will be able to livestream their gameplay videos through the Twitch service, but with this new feature, Twitch will also keep an archive of all recorded videos.
While this service is planned, it is yet unconfirmed as to when it will be implemented.
“We find archiving to be an exciting part of the broadcast experience, especially since broadcasters and their viewers love to be able to revisit and share some of their most memorable moments,” said Matthew DiPietro, Twitch’s VP of marketing in a comment to Joystiq. “It’s up to our partners to determine if it’s a feature set they want to offer as part of their Twitch integration, so we encourage them to keep this functionality top of mind.”
This is one feature that is currently lacking on the PlayStation 4 and one of the points we mentioned in our in-depth review for the PlayStation 4.
