At the time of their press conferences, neither console knew for sure if they would allow live streaming. The Xbox 360 already allowed live streaming so it would be a bit of a downgrade if the new console didn't. Now they are saying both will have some sort of streaming feature. Why was this such a hush-hush idea for a while? It's not like it is a brand new concept. If we could enjoy live streaming on another console before then why would any new gaming console avoid such? Bottom line, we want to be able to stream our games over the interwebs. Playstation has since stated that it will have this feature. Xbox also released some information that suggests the same live streaming capabilities of its last consoles.
