    Fast internet.
    Lots of stuff.
    Hype (or boobs).

    Some hd game recorded google streaming from xbox to twitch but i would say wait for xbox to get the feature... Because the normal hardwire cost up to 200+ not to mention decent streaming software and you need good pc... Good internet to stream in hd with good fps... And so on and on its a hassle... And ATM the most watched game is cod or gta5... And for gta5 i would say find a crew that want to stream together easier and attracts more people...

    Talking about getting viewers you must be good at gaming but atm all the bastards who give out gifts get most viewers so twitch is corrupt... And shitty...

    You can get decent 1080p capture hardware for around $120.
    For high movement/action games, you will need around 3mb upload.
    Having a super computer is not required for console stream b/c your computer doesn't have to shoulder the burden of actually running the game.
    You can actually view recommended system reqs on Twitch.

    Poe, people who give out gifts have mediocre numbers for the most part. If you want views have skill, personality, an accent, or boobs.
    Also, lots of networking.

    I see, now i understand why having this integrated into the console is so appealing. Sounds like its better for me to just wait. You guys have been a great help thank you.

    before i sold my ps4 i created a twitch and streamed every game i owned, i noticed that as long as i kept it consistent the numbers would add up. I kept streaming even when no one was watching and eventually i would have about 10 ppl in my room. Out of those 10 1 would sub. Its fun.

    ye the beginning is quite hard but the hardest part is you cant be the hardcore streamer if you cant make a living out of it ... its hard for me for example because i work long hours and such ...
