PlanetSide 2 first game to feature Twitch integration

Broadcast with just a click of a button

I can remember ever since I discovered the magic of Xbox Live back in 2004, I always thought, "Man, wouldn't it be cool if my friends could just watch me play games just by clicking on my name or something?" Well, it appears we're one step closer to that dream, as Sony Online Entertainment has announced that PlanetSide 2 will be the first title ever to feature in-game streaming integration with Twitch.

Beginning this weekend (for beta players), all you have to do is click a button and you'll be live! I can't stress enough how awesome this is. I do a weekly live show on Dtoid.TV every Saturday, and streaming just PC games is a pain in the ass as is. I haven't even made it to streaming console games yet. Between the cost of the streaming software, capture box, and simply making it run smoothly is a perfect storm of hassles. If this works flawlessly, hopefully more most games from now on support this feature.
