Twitch is another step closer to becoming the Netflix of the video game world.
The popular video game footage streaming service will be available on Sony's next-generation PlayStation 4 when it's released later this year. By tapping the new "share" button on the PS4 controller, users will be able to broadcast gameplay directly to Twitch.
Microsoft announced similar Twitch integration earlier this year for its upcoming Xbox One.
Currently, more than 600,000 Twitch broadcasters are watched by more than 38 million viewers a month.
Sony Corp. previously announced that the PS4 would allow users to share gameplay experiences on the social networking site Facebook and video streaming service Ustream.
