Twitch has announced a partnership with Minecraft developer Mojang to integrate Twitch streaming capabilities right into the PC and Mac version of the game.

Minecraft has proven to be an incredibly popular game on Twitch, consistently appearing in the service's top 20 most popular games since 2011.

It's unclear exactly how or when Twitch streaming will be integrated into Minecraft, but it will be "soon," and it will allow players to begin streaming at the "push of a button".

Our Take
Streaming is becoming more and more popular, but I am curious if its popularity will wain somewhat as it becomes easier and easier to stream gameplay. Both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will offer integrated Twitch capabilities, and it will soon become easy for anyone with a copy of Minecraft on PC or Mac to start showcasing their gaming online. With everyone streaming, who will be left to watch?
