It's true: Xbox One is getting its long overdue gameplay broadcasting functionality on March 11th, just in time for the launch of Xbox/PC-exclusive multiplayer blockbuster Titanfall. Some folks will get a chance to try out that functionality early through the beta program, but no one outside of Microsoft and Twitch have ready access to the service just yet. That's not stopping Microsoft from touting the service as, "the first truly next-gen Twitch experience, one that can't be matched by any other console." So, uh, what does that mean?
It boils down to two main aspects of Twitch on Xbox One that aren't available on PlayStation 4: archiving live feeds and the ability to view all of Twitch (read: any game on any game console). The latter ability already exists on your Xbox One; load up the Twitch app and watch any broadcast you want. When the app gets updated on March 11th (yes, there will be one application -- Twitch -- that handles broadcasting), it gets the ability to broadcast games out as well. Initial setup requires two basic audio/visual choices: if you're using video, where do you want the picture-in-picture of your face to show up in the feed? if you're using audio, there are some "basic levels" to work out. Looking to replicate the ease of use of PlayStation 4's Share button ability? Say, "Xbox, Broadcast!" and you're there. If you don't have/don't want to use a Kinect? That's less simple.
