Best Game Capture Tools for Twitch Windows Central 2020

Streaming to Twitch is easy for PC games — you pretty much just need to download Open Broadcaster Software and use its Game Capture mode. However, things get a bit trickier if you want to show off a game you’re playing on an Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Nintendo Switch. You’ll need a capture card to connect your console to the computer you’re using to stream. You might even want one to connect two computers to improve your recording quality. Whatever your needs, these options will help you share your gaming with your fans.
