Well I would probably never watch the event on home. I remember I had 7 tabs open in case one of them went down and I had my phone on the live stream. If you were smart you would relise something could go wrong which it did. Either way Sony put up a 10min summary and the entire conference on YouTube. You should of been smarter

wildcardcorsair1820d ago

To say it is smarter to expect Sony to fail to broadcast their own conference is really only furthering the idea Sony will run into far greater problems with the PS4.

Utalkin2me1820d ago

What like a 57% failure rate? Nah don't think so.

iGAM3R-VIII1820d ago

Sony didn't fail the stream, if YOU were smart enough you would realise that if a lot of people are watching a stream, it would overload thus making the stream break down. That is why most of the streams I had open had a limit of the amount of people that can watch the stream.

Spin it but make sure all blame goes to ms first and never and I do mean never gets back to Sony the sinless one.

GraveLord1820d ago

These 2 things aren't even remotely related. Try harder.

Did we actually reach the point in 'gaming journalism' where we approve articles of individuals having technical difficulties with their shitty internet connection?

So the dude that lost weight at Subway writes for some blog nobody cares about?

What's he doin trying to spin another problem into a career?

I watched it on the xmb and it temporarily stopped in the beginning. So I turned it on in the pc and the pc side also had issues. After like 5 mins, It was running smooth again. Later I back tracked and saw the few mins that ive missed. I dont think this issue is exclusive to HOME. Not that HOME doesnt have any issues of its own already.

dafegamer1820d ago

nothing can ever match the 57% failure rate of the xbox 360

Hellsvacancy1819d ago

I watched probably 5 minutes of it using Home, I couldnt stand it, all the boxes/options on the screen, I couldnt get rid of it

Told my missis shes gonna have to get off the laptop, which I then plugged into my tv, left me thinkin *why didnt I do this in the first place"

maddfoxx1819d ago

Have you ever watched a live stream before? A lot of them go down if too many people are watching them.

Yea I started on 1 stopped about 10 min in so I was scrambling for another and I found a crystal clear picture and feed that went the remaining 2 hours or whatever it was.

I thought it was a really good conference.

If your a girl and u use home it's a guarantee your going to be harassed

Knight_Crawler1820d ago (Edited 1820d ago )

LOL...Perverted old men who stock young boys are every where in home.

When ever a girl avatar pops up in Home, you always see like 100 dudes around the person disguised as a girl.

Is Home still in Beta stage? If yes then this has got to be the longest Beta in history.

kreate1820d ago

Its actually not like that anymore. It was like that when Home first came out and like the first 2 years.

SilentNegotiator1819d ago

Guys harassing women online?

Well! That certainly never happens on YOUR service of choice! /s

clintagious6501820d ago

This is exactly why I would love home to be on the ps4. Make good use of that ram. =]

OSIRUSSS1820d ago

Do they have open mics on home yet? Or is it just people on your FL!

Silly gameAr1820d ago

You can chat with anyone in Home. You can use the phone a friend option and it works pretty well.

MysticStrummer1820d ago

They had open mics before the beta opened. It was disturbing what people went around saying. There won't be fully open mics again because humans can't handle it.

Godmars2901820d ago

Betting there's nothing about the several other streaming events from Home that worked.

Blackcanary1819d ago

I've watched E3 on Home worked fine.
