Xbox One Gameplay Broadcasting Delayed Until 2014

Twitch integration was touted as one of the better collaborative elements of Microsoft’s next-gen console, the Xbox One. Today, however, Microsoft dropped news that the app won’t be available on the November 22nd launch date. The Xbox team is, “working to ensure the initial Twitch on Xbox One broadcasting experience meets the expectations of the Twitch community.” For whatever reason, it seems like Twitch and the Xbox One aren’t quite ready for each other yet. It’s a bad realization for Microsoft, as the Twitch integration was a highly touted feature of the new console. For what it’s worth, Xbox gamers will be able to watch Twitch on the console as an app, but that’s only half the battle. How this affects gamers’ proclivity to purchase will have to be judged later in the month.
