During a live broadcast dedicated to the Tokyo Game Show on a Japanese TV channel, Sony Computer Entertainment booth staffers found themselves in an awkward situation as the host tried The Playroom on the PS4 under the watchful eye of the camera.
lol .. sh!t happens
It sure did. It was quite a stroke of bad luck for it to happen on live TV. I'm pretty positive it was the only time it happened too. if they had even just a hint that it could fail, they'd have never done the broadcast live.
We all know Microsoft sabotaged the live show. lol ;D :p
Yes, this Play room is being shown for quite some time already, funny to see it happening now. Random crashes usually affects more PCs then consoles... (at least in my experience) Now imagine if PS4 had crashed at the Gamescom opening with Shuei. That would be an epic fail!
Unfortunate things happen at unfortunate times. Won't sway anyone from their current console choice, so it's no big deal.
LOL it looks like the system/controller paring got screwed up. Love the fact that everyone had a laugh. Murphy's Law in action. We've all seen enough live demos of this to know that it works lol.
You guys have seen my post so it's safe to say what camp I'm in. But let's be honest Microsoft wouldn't have gotten a pass like this if it happened to them. Well it doesn't matter because if a Xbox One crashes and nobody in japan is around to hear it, does it really matter?
@Muerte - You're right, they probably wouldn't have. That being said though, the PS4 itself didn't die, something went wrong in the game. So it could be a game bug or a system bug, can't really be sure. When that video of Ryse leaked, the guy actually said that sometimes you can press the Xbox button multiple times before it goes to dashboard, which is a system bug it appears, but it's not that major, which is why nobody really cares. Software issues can be ironed out at least.
LMAO since it's SONY shits happens if it was the other guy RROD and rushed hardware jokes all the way .
That shit better not happen when I'm in the playroom!
@hakeem0996 lol, So true! ...What's funny though is that this is the ONLY bad PS4 news I've heard for months. XD Xbox fans need something I guess. lol
50% more powerful is confirmed !
Its no biggie, these things happen. very bad timing though with all those millions of Japanese people watching.
@ People disagreeing with me. I guess you missed this news right? http://www.gamesthirst.com/... http://sknr.net/2013/07/21/... "Xbox One Suffers System Malfunction At Comic-Con Numerous Times" "the Xbox One had been having issues with crashing throughout the weekend and that it was decided to shut down the systems until a solution could be determined." "they had 6 to 7 attempts at meetings each time the hardware was unable to be stable enough to complete the demonstration" But because a PS4 APP didn't respond. It's the end of the world for PlayStation... lulz
lol @skips for setting up accusations for yourself to answer upon.
@skips I didn't even know that happen to MS... honestly with new consoles, this is expected; but at the same time, this could have been the software freezing.
@ Skips, you made a claim and backed it up evidence supporting it. Not that you need anymore but bubble of for "intelligence". Hard fact are a rare commodity on the internet.
@skips u showed evidence that the xone hardware crashed and i bet the xbox fans would quickly dismiss it and then call the sony fans hypocrites smh. if you read this whole comment section u can really see that xbox fans are just sitting and waiting for something to happen to Sony so they could get a say, i mean seriously playroom crashed once after being showed a lot of times running perfectly and xbots act like the console died on the spot.
"Come on, where are the Xbots...this is your chance fellas!" That's a Sony fanboy thing. No one else cares to be that petty.
their is a big difference between an occasional bug that can be fixed and a bad product that will stay average. what is the point of people coming here and saying" if..if..if it was xbox.."? what I find idiotic is some take criticism directed at a company personally as if their mothers are insulted, XB1 is getting hammered because it deserved it, not because of a"fanboy" conspiracy, the same as the PS3 in 2007
Are Sony fans having arguments with themselves now? Lmao Scrolling thru comments and keep seeing all the defensive spinning and talking about Xbox fans.... When none actually commented.. Priceless.. On topic.. Its not a huge deal and it happens.. But we all know how cool youd all play it if it were x1 in the vid
Gotta agree. Unsigned code on debug hardware. That's the whole point of having test units. This was normal for pre-release stuff.
Hahahaha. Black if it was the Xbox one that done it you would be beating your drum right now :/
Eh, at least it's not like that time a display 360 RROD'd in front of everyone.
Lol xbox would be getting slaughtered for days!!!! Reset it for f#$# sake lol
the truth, YES i'd .. unlinke sony MS actually promoting the kinect as a selling point and making us pay for it
Now now thrust no need to bring the xbone into every PS4 related article :) not like it is some sort of RROD!
sony are cool so i dont give a f tbh. and tbh if it was micro i would lol at them cause they deserve it.
Yeah am lolling at the ps4 failing on live tv, it's just not stable at all! If you where out and wanting to remote play and it done this what can you do to fix it?
@Konsoru - At the Eurogamer Expo a few years ago, they had L4D2 on show, but nobody could play it because both 360s had RRODed.
True, he would have been the first of tons of PS fans to jump all over that. You even have PS fanboys trying to justify this by bringing up issues from 2007 on here. It's not a big deal really, these things happen in development, they are still working on the bugs (and since this was on TV you can guarantee they will fix it).
Can't happen. Remote Play doesn't work with PS4 camera software. Why would you be out and about and in front of your TV and PS4 looking at yourself? Burned.
Except when its Xbox right? Then we all go like OMG hardware sucks ,RROD2, Xbone sucks! M$ fails.
That's just the nature of n4g..
