SAN FRANCISCO — Now you can view Twitch from all your Sony consoles.

Emmett Shear, the chief executive of gameplay livestreaming platform Twitch, announced that Twitch will be available this fall across all PlayStation devices.

Speaking at the TwitchCon convention in San Francisco, Shear said that players are already broadcasting by the hundreds of thousands on the PlayStation 4. Now the company is making it possible to broadcast or view livestreams across all PlayStation platforms, including the PS Vita, PS3, and PlayStation TV.

When PlayStation 4 launched in 2013, it offered the ability to easily live broadcast PS4 gameplay sessions using the “Share” button on the DualShock 4 wireless controller and view live PS4 gameplay sessions via Live from PlayStation.

This is also the first time that Twitch has appeared on a handheld console — it’s not on the 3DS family of Nintendo systems.
