    Staff edit- do try some content some time.
    Game footage has always been popular, I am sure many of us probably could fetch a VCR down from an attic full of such footage, but in recent times with live streaming and "let's plays" it has explored. To do it on home consoles can take some effort and pricey hardware though and this is presumably where this can come in.
    Screen grabbing and replays are possible for some games but it seems the fairly popular streaming service "TwitchTV", a spinoff of the very popular general streaming service Justin.tv, has made moves into the console arena. So far it seems Activision (owners of the Call of Duty brand and only title set for support at the moment) will be adding support for the service, where it ultimately ends up remains to be seen though. Gamespot notes that it is not the only big service to offer support for such content and youtube has been there for a long time, however TwitchTV has positioned itself as a dedicated games service and youtube has been seen to be a less than ideal location for a lot of content (one typically attempts to charitably describe the nature of the commenters there at this juncture).

    Whup Whup Whup! Gamers are now allowed to stream their gaming WORLDWIDE. But... Only available for the Xbox 360. PS3 and PC versions are coming soon, yah.

    Funny how you just posted this on another USN thread...
    Just saying.
    This would be better off in the Xbox 360 section if it only concerns Xbox

    Example of how not to write a USN article.

    This isn't a dedicated TwitchTV app but simply the ability to stream Black Ops 2 via Twitch with Call of Duty Elite.

    So... it's not "Only for XBox 360", it's "temporarily for the XBox 360 with other versions in the works"?

    I see.

    Aww, sucks how PS3 gets everything like a month late :( At least the recent update made YouTube streaming possible.
    There are no "paid features" in Black Ops 2 (excluding DLC, but that's just map packs). All of the paid features of MW3 were made free this year.
