Members of the PC gaming elite and console players with add-on hardware have been live streaming their gaming exploits for years, but a new generation of consoles means everyone's 15 minutes of fame one step closer.
History is being made here Folks. I've been following this for three hours now and Adam Boyes actually phoned in. Here's his call: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Wow, this went Viral! and this is such an awesome and innovative idea. They are both naturally good at being in the center of attention. i encourage everyone to follow them on twitch and twitter for some more awesome livestreams in the future! (remember... 4>1 ...hehe)
Someone call in from N4G! Come on I would if I was in the U.S.. Adam Boyes sounded shattered there.
@Septic If you listen closely you can hear Boyes say he has a cold.
I started watching when it was first posted on Neogaf. Was amazing seeing the views creep up from 200 to over 1000. Yosp's tweet, then Boyes call, and Patrick. Must be the best feeling for those guys. This will be a thing, Sony should work on a dedicated app or mode for it. The Playroom has become the Killer-App for this without even meaning to.
More people are now doing it: http://www.twitch.tv/shukla... http://www.twitch.tv/hitman... http://www.twitch.tv/xdoggz
@Gribble I can imagine there will be a lot of copycats from now on in. People won't keep watching them, however, without original ideas or great personalities. I like this couple, but they need some sort of structure to keep people interested. I doubt they'll keep up a great viewership without a plan. Which is unfortunate, but they should enjoy it while it lasts!
Ha! That's pretty cool. I was thinking of how I would go about doing something like this yesterday. Was thinking how can I get that video box bigger and outta know where bam!, These guys think up using the Playroom. I'm lovin the PS4 more and more each day!
This is really good. You can use the Playroom broadcast like a post game discussion segment for all your viewers, after you've live-streamed a game. or uploaded a video.
If Sony plays their cards right, and continues this kind of interaction with members of the Playstation Nation, they'll easily be the go to company, and the PS4 will be the go to console, for all kinds of social gaming ideas going into the future. Shuhei Yoshida popularized a high ranking executive engaging, and trolling, with a userbase. It can't be easy for him to deal with the internet. Adam Boyes just showed that Sony looks for innovative ideas coming straight from us gamers, and they engage those that have them. If Sony keeps up this trend of engaging with the people, it can be immensely good for them in my opinion. Sony and the PS4 are the People's Choice.
I expect the playroom dev team are having a lot of meetings this morning to figure out what to add next. I doubt they ever expected it to be used in this way. If they could combine the LBP type user created content with playroom this could just explode. People could then create their own virtual environments.
I typed "I love cheese and the Spartan show"... and she laughed. It's the small things that make me happy.
I didn't catch the Adam Boyes call but what I've watched is strangely interesting. They have a little robot (From PS4 Playroom) floating around their heads and it seems like a little cat or dog and it's almost like they have a pet powered by he Playstation Eye. And the show is kinda like community radio or TV. There has been a lot of conversation about what is going to be the big next-gen innovation and I'm beginning to think it is live streaming from your console! Amazing.
I posted his call above.
I got to talk to them twice! I called in and got on twice. :) They are amazing!
Not big into twitch but it's growing on me. What these two are doing is pretty neat, shame I'm overseas atm. That bot is pretty funny, didn't think much of Playroom but I'm beginning to see how fun it can be. :D
What make it great is that he seems like such a nice dude. Great to someone being humble rewarded. There have been 3 sony employeees that have called in so far. #NoSleepTillYoshida
Wow they're getting famous. LOL Yosp better call. HAha
He's watching happily, probably ready to cover for Boyes if he accidentally coughed Last Guardian's release date or something, hehehe :) https://twitter.com/yosp/st... Live-streaming is definitely next-gen :) EDIT: Will the Twitch star kill the YouTube star? :P
I had called in and asked why they weren't playing the Xbox One lol. Also ADAM BOYES CALLED IN!
haha that was funny, no wonder PLAYSTATION tweeted their show out, he was very adamant about PS4 being the shi* It was fun for a bit but mostly just them sitting around, funny guy kept calling saying the baby was his.
Nice. They are fun. Wait, you weren't trolling to try and ruin the fun where you? :(
Call in, represent N4G!!!
Sony is watching us on Twitch. We should all go on there and beg for Syphon Filter and Crash Bandicoot.
Just watching this now. Its odd seeing this live on a PS4. Yoshida needs to call them :D
No sleep till yoshida! I called in and was actually on the show! :0)
Nice dude, musta have been fun :)
Got to give props to Sony on this one. More similar interactions between customer and company should be encouraged. (Hopes Nolan North calls my house...)
A few people of note have called in so far. Patrick from GB and Denis Dyack called in from a bathtub.
We need to see some YouTube celebrity cross over calls from Francis or Boogie or the HipHopGamer show.
I'm waiting for Shuhei Yoshida to call in. Greatness awaits.
Lol i was watching this for awhile.Hell people were suggesting his wife give birth live on twitch xD.
B-b-but Xbox people were saying nobody would use Twitch. That it wasn't a big deal or anything!
Some guy asked the streamer if he ever played Uncharted and he said, "yeah I played that on PC" ... *Facepalm*
Lol I saw that and cringed..
Yeah, Uncharted looks that good! It's easy to mistake it for PC.
Yoshida at the phone right now!!
Hosting an internet call-in show on your PS4? Welcome to next-gen. What a great way to bring gamers together.
This is the killer app nobody expected. Its completely awesome,
Well. It doesn't take much to be a Twitch TV star then. And who besides a few Playstation peeps know Adam Boyes? It's a cool vid to show how twitch works on Ps4 but that's it.
Been a follower for awhile now & a member of Twitch I got it on my app on my Ipad it's great .
They are live-streaming again right now.
They started the Spartan show again guys http://www.twitch.tv/sparta...
I watched it a bit and it was fun with the little Robot flying around and when the guy was writing something on the paper the Robot looked over his shoulder to "see" what he was writing. :D
Really really cool. Better than watching some biased/paid game journalist.
