    I plan to Mixer on the XB1, first time I'll be using Mixer so it'll be interesting to see if the stream holds up, etc. because this will be my first exposure to the service.

    Highly recommend using it before the E3 conference because like all new things it usually doesn't go as planned when put under such a big load. In my experience it's a pretty good service compared to Twitch.

    That was my entire point, if they want to push this big, new shiny service, it should work flawlessly in its first biggest test.

    Personally I don't think that's entirely fair. But if you want to set such a high bar that you expect them to fail go ahead.


    BTW it's not entirely new either. It's basically Beam with a new name. So not entirely shiny new.

    Will do. MS lost the benefit out the doubt after Kinect II. Or was it leveraging the power of the cloud?

    All the more reason for it to function near perfectly, no?

    Possibly, but it's never seen the loads it will see during E3. It will definitely be a great test.

    Mixer is my primary with Twitch ready as a backup.

    I've been using Mixer for the last two weeks and while it still needs a little polishing, it is very much a comparable experience to Twitch.

    If all else fails on streaming you can watch live on FUSE HD if your cable company carries that TV Channel. Mine does, so I should be covered, but I'm going to try Mixer first and foremost.

    Bah.

    Twitter was able to manage to stream Live NFL games in HD flawlessly to people without a twitter account (like me), so I don't really think there's much of an excuse here.

    As to Spencer's statements... Funny, wasn't it just a week ago that somebody sent him the E3 schedule that showed the Xbox show going 2 hours and Phil said it wasn't correct as their conference was only 90 minutes?

    I wonder if it was actually accurate after all?

    I heard that only mixer and YouTube will be offering 4K streams so I'll go with either of those.
