Have you ever dreamed of streaming your battle royale victories to adoring fans? Or having a stream where you chat about what makes your favourite titles great with like-minded gamers? Well, thanks to the in-built streaming functionality of the PS4, getting your start in streaming couldn’t be easier. Here’s how to stream from your PS4.

To start, all you’ll need is your console, an internet connection, and a copy of the game you’ll want to stream. Once you’re set up, just hit the ‘Share’ button on the PS4 controller, where you’ll see a menu for capturing and sharing your gameplay. Then, select ‘Broadcast Gameplay’, where you’ll be able to link your pre-existing Twitch or YouTube account, or set one up if you don’t have one already.

Once you’ve done that, you can put a title on your broadcast. Think of something attention-grabbing and clear, such as ‘How many Apex Legends victories will I get today?’ or ‘Scoring screamers in FIFA 19’. Once you’ve got a title and you’ve adjusted any of the other options to your liking, select ‘Start Broadcasting’ and voila, you’re streaming.

Now, the fun begins. You’ll see an overlay appear on your screen, showing you how many people are watching, along with comments coming in from the stream chat. This is a great way to communicate with your viewers, but this can also be turned off if you just want to focus on the game.

To take your stream to the next level, why not try chatting with your audience? To do this, you’ll need a headset. To get you started, try the GAMEware Stereo Headset, which is designed to be comfortable for marathon sessions. There’s also the PS4 Gold Wireless Headset, which comes with 7.1 surround sound and two hidden multi-position, noise-cancelling microphones to ensure your viewers don’t miss a word.

If you’re serious about making a name for yourself in the streaming game, get your face out there with the PlayStation Camera. This camera is great for streaming and even supports 60 frames-per-second and green screen chroma key graphics, for those who want their streams to be as professional as possible.

Remember, confidence and consistency are the keys when it comes to streaming. Try making a schedule and experimenting with different games to find out what works for you – and remember us when you’re a megastar.
