Microsoft’s Mixer tempts Twitch users by making it easier for streamers to make money
Mixer, Microsoft's game streaming service, is giving streamers the option to get a cut of games which are sold to their viewers, in a system similar to the one Twitch operates. However, Microsoft’s take has a much wider scope in a bid to tempt users away from its big-name streaming rival.
Mixer Direct Purchase, which will begin to roll out shortly, lets a viewer purchase a game or piece of DLC right on the streamer’s channel page directly within Mixer.
Microsoft notes that this happens seamlessly with no need for any codes or activation process – the content is automatically added to the purchaser’s Xbox or Windows 10 game library for later downloading.
The streamer gets a slice of the revenue, with a 5% cut of every purchase.
