Just been anounced that "Red 5 Studios that will bring real-time streaming support to" F2P MMO shooter Firefall has teamed up with Twitch in a effert to try to allow "video streaming services like Twitch become commonplace. "Video broadcasting will soon be a standard, expected piece of the gaming experience with innovative companies like Red 5 making it possible by pioneering the way it's built into games." - according to Twitch vice president of marketing Matthew DiPietro
Now I have to disagree with this guy Mathew DiPietro because I belive he is just trying to pump up the player in a greed like fashion to make players belive that future MMO's and gaming in general can not live with out some kind of video chat or live chat for that matter. It is not nessesary for PVE grinding. It is not nessesary for raids even since we used programs like Vent or Teamspeak that work just fine and to invoke live stream from twitch to try to shove this down gamers faces is wrong.
For one it will slow down your game since streaming video will demand more of your lat and bandwidth. This in turn will slow down your frame rate.
All I can see this attempt to combine Twitch and MMO's is a complete fail. Just a gimmick to make the average player spend more money on a what is spose to be a F2P game to begin with were does the madness end??
