Playroom is awesome like that.

Yeah same. Minus obviously the sordid child abuse stuff.

People just chilling whilst streaming, rolling a should come with an age warning but I kinda like it more open like that. It makes it more interesting imo.

...and everyone gives Nintendo a hard time for the lack of social and online connectivity.

I agree, there's a few idiots on there that will do dumb stuff, you can't escape that. Other than that, it's just people chillin'. When I'm bored, and don't feel like playing any particular game, I sometimes just scroll through the Playstation Live streams.

I can't wait until they update it so it's easier to find a friend's stream by just going to them on friend's list and selecting their stream if it's running. Currently, it's not that easy, I've had to go to the PC to find my nephew's stream, the search wouldn't find it on PS4.I assume there's tons of stuff like this that's still to come though, like Twitch streams going from 540p to 720p.

That is gonna be sweet, if they can just bring down the delay of streams now. I think it's around a 20-25 second delay currently between your actual gameplay and the stream. If they can bring that down to <5 eventually, then viewers comments would stay in sync with the action better. As long as it's a constant work in progress though, it should keep getting better quickly.

Sony needs to moderate their content and it is quite appaulling that they allow this stuff on the front page.

MS has Xbox Live Enforcement team that keeps people in check. They are reachable and have been active for a long long time. This is one of the things that made Xbox Live so awesome.

Now that Sony is taking a fee to play online, they need to step up their game and stop their services from being constantly bombarded with sexually crazed vermins. The similar issues plagued Playstation Home.
