Published

One of the biggest headlines to hit the news wire this year was when Ninja left Twitch to join Mixer, which sent shockwaves throughout the streaming industry and brought mainstream attention to the Microsoft streaming platform.

Fast forward several months later, and you’ll notice that Ninja’s viewership numbers on Mixer have been a far cry from what he was seeing on Twitch, and he took time to comment on it during a recent stream, while adding that he still prefers Mixer over Twitch.

“I don’t think you guys understand how little I give a f**k.  Okay? How little viewers mean to me right now on Mixer… I enjoy what I do, man. And guess what? I get to do it without having to worry about my sub count. Or playing ads, or ad revenue. I can take vacation, I can take time off. I’m comfortable.

Making things a bit more difficult for Mixer streamers who are planning to become Facebook streamers in the wake of the sudden news that Microsoft was ceasing operations for Mixer and moving to Facebook Gaming, Facebook Gaming will not be replacing Mixer in the Xbox One console dashboard.

“If you are asking if the current Mixer integration in the dashboard is just going to become Facebook gaming. The answer is no,” Major Nelson said when he was recently asked directly about it on Reddit.

Furthermore, Xbox Head Phil Spencer stated on Twitter that Microsoft wants to give players options, which may rule out bringing some form of Facebook Gaming integration to the Xbox consoles in the future.

“Yes, we absolutely want to give gamers choice of where to stream from Xbox” Spencer tweeted in response to a question about the situation.

Shroud Says Twitch Will Lose to Mixer Eventually

It may seem like Twitch is hands down winning the “war” between streaming platforms, especially after reporting record-breaking viewership numbers during the past few months people have been in quarantine, but one of the most popular Mixer steamers, Shroud believes that Mixer will eventually overtake the streaming mega-power.

Shroud sparked a debate by sharing a video to his second channel where he admits that Twitch is currently winning, but stated that he feels that Mixer will eventually come out on top, stressing that people need to be patient.

‘Twitch has been around for longer, therefore there’s more people there,’ Shroud said during the video (h/t Metro.uk). “So a lot of people don’t think of the long-con. They don’t think of the long play. They just think of the short-term play.”

Shroud went on to say that he believes that the “up and comers” on Mixer will build their own established audiences, and those brands will be able to compete with some of the older Twitch streamers who have used the platform for years.

Shroud went on to say that Twitch has become “oversaturated” and that he thinks anyone looking to break into the streaming industry would choose Mixer.

“Of course Twitch right now is doing so good and continuing to do so good” Shroud continued.

“Because they have something. People who have started on Twitch 6 years ago, 5 years ago, 3 years ago… if they started that long ago, they probably have a good foundation. ‘When you’re creating a streaming platform, you really just have to sit there, and f**king wait,’ he continues, ‘Like, truly, that’s what you gotta do, and Microsoft’s perfect because Microsoft’s f**king huge. They have the resources to just sit there and wait… that’s how I know Mixer has a very, very good chance to succeed.’
