Like I'm sure many of you are, I'm planning on upgrading my Xbox One X for the Series X this winter when it drops. Also I'm sure many of you are planning on selling your current console to claw back some of the cost for the upgrade... But what if there was another option. What if you could still utilise the powerful hardware inside your old machine.
Instead of having to buy an expensive PC and capture card with a 4K HDR 120hz pass through capture to maintain your playing quality, you could use the XB1X as a dedicated stream machine.
I'd love if Microsoft either in house or allow 3rd party developers like Twitch Studio, Steamlabs OBS or Facebook Gaming to develop a dedicated Streaming suite with what you'd except from a powerful PC. It has the hardware, it even has a HDMI pass through and the capability to send video feeds over your LAN.
Using my new Series X DVR I send the game and voice chat feed either using a splinter or over LAN to my old console. On the old console it receives the feed and allows me to add a webcam, layers, stream deck, different scenes an external microphone. It already has mouse and keyboard support. Now I don't have to shell out for a PC just to stream as a hobby, I have it all already.
I know I'm dreaming and I'm in now a dev with any know how if this is even possible but... It seems plausible.. Right?
