Once the PS4 launches in their region, Japanese users will have another streaming platform to broadcast their gaming talents - Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia has announced plans to bring video service Niconico to PS4s this spring, Gematsu reports.

Niconico offers a schedule of user and corporate-created content and carries a monthly subscription fee of about $5. Comments from Niconico livestream chats typically scroll across the presentation itself, but the overlay can be turned off. It's unclear if Niconico will require a PlayStation Plus membership for broadcasting on PS4, but for reference, Twitch.tv can be used without a PS+ subscription.

Nintendo purchased stock in Niconico last November, noting a request from the Niconico chairman Nobuo Kawakami to do so.
