Twitch removes PS4 Playroom directory following lewd behavior

#1skermacPosted 11/27/2013 10:59:20 AM
Anyone getting rid of their PS4 because of this? If you don't have one yet will you not buy one now? Or does this not matter to you?


"Streaming service Twitch has removed the PlayStation 4 Playroom directory after reports of gamers using the service to host streams featuring lewd behavior surfaced earlier this week.

“We removed Playroom content from the directory because a majority of it was non-gaming related,” a Twitch representative told Game Informer. “We will look into adding it back as PS4 owners become more familiar with the games-only focus of Twitch content."

Earlier this week, Twitch explained that it already needed to remove multiple streams due to salacious behavior and inappropriate comments in chat rooms. One stream featured a man undressing his partner after an extensive drinking session.

This is why we can't have nice things.

I didn't fully understand what the story was at first: People were talking like Sony took down the Playroom, similar to how Nintendo did that thing to spotpass or something.

But it sounds like its Twitch what did it... which means theres a chance of Sony finding a different streaming service to work with, or making some sort of deal where they have to moderate the content.

Nothing like acting immaturely to make your point about the supposed immaturity of others.

I'd say that the fact that my account is more than 13 years old should be sufficient to show that I am, indeed, older than 13.

As a side note, it is not unexpected. If people REALLY want to do things like that, they could always invest in a webcam. Twitch is supposed to be for gaming and those people were abusing the stated purpose.
