There’s potential for a Twitch streaming app on handheld devices like the 3DS or Vita, COO Kevin Lin has said.

Speaking to Games Industry, he noted that while there are some difficulties with the hardware, it’s definitely something the company is thinking about.

Handhelds. That’s something we’d love to do. On handhelds it’s more of a server/CPU concern, but we definitely want to do it.

The first step, he said, is likely to be allowing people to view streams from their handheld consoles, something far easier to accomplish using the existing hardware.”

Viewing apps, that’s much less CPU intensive than broadcasting.
