Xbox One’s streaming features continue to pull ahead of the PS4.
The PlayStation 4 might have launched with better gameplay video sharing capabilities than Xbox One- it allowed for up to fifteen minutes of continuous video recording to Xbox One’s ten, and it supported both Twitch and Ustream to Xbox One’s Ustream support only- but the Xbox One has soon achieved parity, and even pulled ahead.
After allowing Twitch sharing (and at higher resolutions than PS4), Microsoft is now allowing gameplay video sharing over Youtube for Xbox One- the process remains as simple with Youtube as it was otherwise, and it potentially opens up native Xbox One streaming to a much wider audience.
In addition, Microsoft has also announced that the GoPro Channel app will be launching on Xbox 360 today, thus making good on a promise made back in January.
Microsoft seems to be working over time to make up for the lost time with the PS4’s lead over their console in terms of OS and console. This round of console wars should be pretty interesting.
