Twitch Xbox 360 app launches today

Why play video games on your Xbox 360 when you can watch other people play them?

Twitch is launching its very own Xbox Live app today. The first of its kind for the game-centric streaming service, viewers can browse its top 300 channels based on traffic and spectate their cares away.

Not only is the app free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, it's ad-free, a Twitch representative told us. That makes it a very compelling alternative to hunching over your monitor or hooking your computer up to your television.

Twitch is already embedded into some games like Black Ops 2, letting players easily stream footage from their consoles. Now, you can watch those streams from the very same place (as long they're a top-300 channel).
