I love seeing "PS4" and not having be in speculation articles. It's amazing to think that it's real and it's less than a year away. The Ustream partnership is going to be an awesome addition as well.

Yes, Ustream was quite impressive for the most part. On N4G, the video lagged for me. I then went to IGN, it lagged. Then GameInformer - lag.

It worked the best of the actual Ustream website for me. I missed the whole Capcom presentation in between switching sites lol.

I don't think they expected that many people to be watching it. It was amazing. The hype surrounding the reveal and the amount of people watching it can only mean very strong sales for the PS4. Can't wait for GDC and E3.

Was pretty stable on game trailers for me. Originally tried to go to the ps blog but couldn't even get on the site.

RioKing1886d ago

^this. I had all sorts of troubles tryig to watch the vid, until I went to gametrailers. It was lag-free and awesome!!

JetsFool35001886d ago

Ustream is used to alot of traffic thats why it ran smoothly

porkChop1886d ago

The Gametrailers stream was flawless. No lag whatsoever, even in HD. I watched the whole stream from start to finish on GT.

rbluetank1885d ago

Looks like Ustream is comfortable, this meeting's viewers alone broke records, they'll be happy about the partnership.

Crazyglues1886d ago (Edited 1886d ago )

wow - "more than 7.5 million viewers, with a peak of roughly 1 million concurrently. This shatters all previous records for concurrent viewers"

That's insane... Good sign for Sony, means the excitement for PS4 is huge...

I can't wait for E3, I just want to see more games, I still can't believe what I saw at the press conference..

Killzone.. OMG!!! DriveClub.. Wow - Just wow, from the guys that made Motorstorm - evolution games... I mean I was excited to just hear the specs for PS4 and then they showed Games.. OMG!! -that's when my head exploded, it was just too much awesome to take in..

This Fall is going to be the best ever time to be a Gamer..

-and so it begins-..

I had to refresh the page about 4 times because it was so watched.

doctorstrange1886d ago

The whole world was watching

Blastoise1886d ago (Edited 1886d ago )

It was weird watching it thinking 99% of gamers are sat here doing exactly the same thing I am.

There was a strange tension, ya know? lol

I bet most gaming forums turned into a temporary wasteland

b163o11886d ago

I had to watch first half in German, cause the I couldn't connect to the English one lol, but eventually got into the English room lol desperation

GT had one hell of a stream. Beautiful HD, no interruptions.

cervantes991886d ago

Exactly! GT was fantastic for this event.

Stream looked beautiful on my iPad.

Toon_Link1886d ago

I was having a tough time trying to decide where I'd get the best stream I wish I went with GT now.

doctorstrange1886d ago

They were about 3 seconds behind Ustream tho, and I don't want people to hear reveals before me

Merrill1886d ago

I couldn't get the GT stream to stop loading. I never had it once work for me.

despair1886d ago (Edited 1886d ago )

Agreed. they worked great for me as well.

Lmao @doctorstrange

dafegamer1886d ago

yeah gt stream was flawless

TheGamerDood1886d ago

It's a damn shame because Sony's cast was HD/60fps but the freezing was really aggravating, right as they started to talk about the hardware it froze up. lol GT saved the day though.

Sony did a great job promoting the hell out of the PlayStation Meeting. Though they didn't show the console at all, there were enough third-party games. A better than average presentation.

G20WLY1886d ago

“Better than average”?! lmao don't go too mad with the hyperbole, will you?!

Yes...Well I can't disagree, as such, but I'd be so bold as to suggest it was “quite a bit” better!

RememberThe3571886d ago

That new PR agency is working wonders already.

alexcosborn1886d ago

Sony sure did make a splash!

dbjj120881886d ago

And it ran like sh** for it!

porkChop1886d ago

lol, should've watched it on Gametrailers. Crystal clear HD, and it ran silky smooth. When it comes to livestreams GT is one of the best.
