Did Call of Duty’s YouTube Streaming Break Already?

As probably all gamers know, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 releases on 11/13/2012. Here in America, that’s tomorrow; elsewhere in the world, that’s today. Since I’m interesting in their crazy new built-in streaming features, I went looking around YouTube for some streams from people who already got the game. Well, I found some. None

Halo 4 Is For eSports…Except When It’s Not

Forbes has an interesting little interview with 343’s Kevin Franklin, talking about Halo 4’s potential for the eSports world. Honestly, there’s very little of substance in this “exclusive interview” – basically, Halo 4 has some multiplayer modes, they’d be good for eSports, and MLG Dallas will be featuring Halo 4. Of course, what isn’t mentioned is

The Weird Legality of Video Game Streaming

Saw this Tweet from Twitch.tv a few weeks ago: For those picking up Dead or Alive 5 tonight, please do not broadcast until 6AM PDT, September 25, per Tecmo’s request. Thank you! — Twitch (@TwitchTV) September 24, 2012 Now I’m not active in the Twitch community, so this is probably more surprising to me than

Xbox 720 Could Support Built-In Streaming and Capture

There’s been a few fun reports on Microsoft patents, like the one where they describe a method for silencing a mobile device by whacking it off. Or this one, where they project a wilderness throughout your entire living room (yeah, great, as if my cats aren’t psychotic enough). But this supposed Xbox 720 one is

Google is Understanding the Modern Gamer

Published on September 24, 2012, by in Gaming.

Today Google published a whitepaper called Understanding the Modern Gamer. It’s a really interesting read, and doesn’t contain the subtle racism of a Nielsen report on the same topic. I was first caught by this quote from the second paragraph: Search data analysis is representative of gamer behavior for 2 reasons: (1) millions of gamers use search engines,

The Roxio HD Pro: The Low-Budget Gameplay Capture Winner?

Last week I posted an article comparing every video game recording solution that matters. My pick for the low-budget category was the Hauppauge HD-PVR line – hardware H.264 capture via USB, with support for both component and HDMI, for around $150. You may have noticed that Roxio was absent from that list. That’s because I

Twitch.tv Powering Call of Duty Live Streaming

  Today TechCrunch reported that Twitch has raised $15 million in venture capital. That’s fine on its own, but what caught my eye in the article were actually two unrelated bits: Twitch doesn’t just want to make it easier for gamers to stream their e-sports matchups to viewers, with one-click access that it’s added to

Video Game Recording Hardware Round-Up

I get a lot of people asking me about the best way to capture gameplay. It’s not a simple answer: there’s a wide range of options, from very consumer-focused products all the way up to the same stuff TV shows and movies use. Your own “best way” is going to be determined by your specific

Nielsen: Gaming Consoles Are Important, Women Watch More TV Than Men

Last week, Nielsen released its Cross-Platform Report for Q1 2012, detailing the viewing habits of Americans across all screens. There’s a ton of interesting stats in the report, so I’d encourage you to read the whole thing – but I know you probably won’t, so here’s the stuff I found interesting: In Q1 2012, Americans
