Twitch Forced To Remove PS4 PlayRoom Content From Directory

People just couldn't help themselves. No surprise.

According to a Game Informer report, streaming service Twitch has removed the PlayStation 4 PlayRoom directory after lots of reports of lewd behavior.

A Twitch representative said that in fact, most people weren't utilizing the service to stream game-related content:

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

Twitch started by warning people via Twitter that all non-game-related content will be removed. Twitch support for the Xbox One is coming some time in 2014; hopefully, that's when the PS4 directory will return...maybe by then, users will have grown up. Although, I never hold my breath for such a wish because in the long run, they just prove that rampant levels of immaturity really do exist.

What a sad commentary on SOME of the gaming community. Sheesh. Grow up, people. With great PS4, comes great responsibility.

Pretty much, need I have to remind everyone what a disaster Playstation Home became, because of the community, the service held up by Sony was a nice concept.... this is why people can't have nice things.

You're not going to ever change those people who broke the rules repeatedly. Even when Twitch Playroom returns, the stubborn mules will still show zero regard for rules.

Just go to XHamster, DailyMotion or elsewhere if you want to play virtual Chatsworth.

Playroom only or PS4 content altogether?

You can still stream PS4 games. Playroom isn't allowed though.

Another group of idiots that make the gaming community look amateurish and shoddy. Unfortunately, they will live on no matter how long they take that specific feature off.

Penny Arcade's current strip is very relevant. In fact, I read this story immediately after I read the comic.

Sad people can't follow the rules and ruin things for everyone.

Sadly a large portion of young people can't help but prove how immature they are and well some older people have the same problem. It's not just gamer's, it's people in general.

We all do stupid stuff, some of us keep it to ourselves and others upload it to the internet.

This is just temporary.

It was very new to a lot of people, especially the younger ones. No surprise they abused it.

What? You mean, no more naked immature children?
Seriously though, while some idiots were using it to stream absolute garbage, like those dumb naked kids and that horrible dancing fat man, other people were using the service in some wonderful ways. The Spartan Show was pretty cool. Reminded me of Call For Help on G4 back in the day.

Seriously, people started using it to stream while they were naked and in the bathroom. That's stuff I wish I could unsee... Especially the bathroom bit. That scarred me for life!

I do hope they create some kind of visible filter, or an approved streamer list. I'd hate for everyone to get punished for the mistakes of a small group of idiots.
