Does anyone else find it amusing that a new service for Call of Duty: Black Ops II is called "Twitch?"
Well, anyway, streaming video company Twitch has announced a partnership with Activision that will let Black Ops II players stream their multiplayer sessions to viewers around the globe.
The feature will eventually come to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game (no mention was made of the Wii U) but unsurprisingly, Twitch will debut with the 360 version. Therefore, if you've been playing on your 360 and you've got a Twitch account, you can start streaming your games today, which can be shared via Twitter and Facebook. Elite subscribers will be able to see the player card of the user who is streaming, which allows them to view their class, loadout, recent match data and other stats.
Of course, fans also have the option of live-streaming via YouTube as well. I can't see the appeal but then again, I'm not a big multiplayer aficionado.
