PlayStation 4 Won’t Be The Only Console With Ustream
The PlayStation 4 reveal showed that it would have integrated Ustream capabilities which can broadcast your play experience to the rest of the world. In an interview with IGN, Usteam founder and CEO Brad Hunstable talks about his platform and its relationship with Sony's upcoming console.
If you watched Sony's announcement, then it may come as no surprise to you that it was broadcast via Ustream, further extolling the merits of the livestream service. The stream showed us a few of the ways that Ustream will allow for our PlayStation 4 experiences to be shared with the world, thanks to the handy new "Share" button. We'll be able to upload footage of gameplay and show off to our friends, but Hunstable wants to make sure that PlayStation 4 players won't be the only ones with this ability.
According to IGN's Colin Moriarty, Hunstable "wants Ustream everywhere, and he confirmed with IGN that, in terms of current and next-generation consoles, Ustream is in no way, shape or form exclusive to the PlayStation 4."
When asked about Microsoft's next console and the Wii U, Hunstable said, "There's nothing specific I can talk about today."
Mum seems to be the word, but it's interesting to know that this kind of widespread sharing service might make it onto other platforms. Would you want Ustream to show up on future consoles? Let us know your opinions in the comments!
