News inside jeuxvideo.com Kojima back, Facebook vs Twitch: we talk about it in the JV newspaper at 12:30
Hideo Kojima would be back at Game Fest, what is he up to? Facebook Gaming is trying to increase its competition against Twitch. The JV le journal team will meet you from 12:30 p.m. on LeStream to discuss it, as well as other topical issues.
But what is Kojima preparing for us?
That’s it. Two years after his last project, Death Stranding, which was as radical in his proposal as he split up, the father of Metal Gear seems to finally be back. On Twitter, we can indeed see a photo of the famous creator, a Game Fest Pass in hand. We can therefore legitimately imagine that he will not come as a simple spectator, but that he could tell us about a new project under development. Difficult, on the other hand, to know what it could be, as the rumors surrounding the character are numerous. It is also complicated to know what the players of Hideo Kojima are waiting for, as the latter’s proposals are always unique. We hope to learn more in the coming days, but we must not forget that communication around our projects is often very cryptic. Patience, therefore.
Facebook declares war on Twitch
In 2018, Facebook entered the world of video game streaming with a dedicated hub. In 2019, the firm made access to its streaming “hub” much easier, thanks to a dedicated tab, before launching the Facebook Gaming application itself. To try to compete with YouTube Gaming and especially the juggernaut Twitch, Facebook is trying to bet on the plurality of its content and the ease of finding a particular type. Recently, the company of Mark Zuckerberg seems to accelerate the pace: favoring monetization for content creators, takeover of the studio behind the game Crayta, Roblox competitor… but is that enough? With the lead Twitch has taken, does Facebook still have a chance to make a name for itself in the gaming world?
