Give people a camera and a means to broadcast and you can bet that, sooner or later, they'll use it to film themselves doin' some sex. Even if it's using a PlayStation 4 (warning: NSFW content follows).
Hey Sony, Kotaku is reporting on irrelevant stuff again!
How is this not relevant? As much as I enjoy video games, I definitely dont want my daughter seeing stuff like this.
The PS4 has Parental Controls where you can restrict use of PS4 features. You can also create Sub Accounts for other users where you have control of everything.
Maybe call up twitch/ ustream it's their service. PS4 has no cam chat yet so ....yeah. No surprise the usual suspects are here feigning outrage and concern.
is brotaku aware that sony doesn't own twitch/ustream?
This is pathetic, this type of stream shouldn't be happening. The sad part is this probably gets more views than Killzone SF. Can someone please tell me what it is with the ps4 and porn, I know you all remember that 3x more porn article.
Man! The PS4 sure is awesome! People could never do this by any other means like a PC or something... Oh wait... -_-
I wouldn't want mine to either... That's why I'm a real parent and use "PARENTAL CONTROLS". I don't like to agree with that other dude, but it IS irrelevant. Sorry. Edit: and your name is mrpsycoticstalker? Tell us again, where did you get your "daughter" from?
If you aren't willing to enable parental controls, you don't have a right to complain about what you don't want you daughter to see. Period. End of Subject. Show some responsibility and stop diverting to someone else.
I like it. Just give a stupid warning when going on, and we are good to go. Let people be free and do what they want. And F-Kotaku, they suck!
"How is this not relevant?" because it's not gaming news.
Lol, the "Dualshockers" guy bashing Kotaku, talk about irony. OT: It's not Sony's fault that idiots use the streaming in ways that they are not supposed to
No offence to parents, but be a friggin' parent. When my parents saw the title for final fantasy, they freaked out and made darn sure that the game wasn't porn. Do something like that, and you don't have to worry about what they do and don't see, as you'll be there with them.
We're sorry, but the article above is currently getting ignored. The majority rules are in favor of this form of media. No one who has witnessed this has complained. And if they do.... they have the option to STOP WATCHING IT.
You can restrict your settings, no worries
But I want to see stuff like this :) don't be a douche bag and ruin if for the ppl who may like this stuff.
"Think of the children" is not a valid concern. You have control over what your child sees. The average gamer is 30 years old, so adult content is not out of bounds.
Is it true that if you enter Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, O, X you get to see the money shot?
The only pathetic one in here is you, how do you have to mention Killzone SF out of the blue when it has nothing to do with the subject, is it because it's a Sony first party? dumbass, stealth trollism at its finest.
PC's Tablets Smart phones Consoles Why did they pick the PS4 out of all of those?
Seriously! This is kind of dumb. People can access porn in all sorts of devices now through their browsers and apps. What's the difference? That it's live and free with a robot starring at them? Awesome! LOL
I can't believe people are defending this. You guys will be the first ones to complain when this feature gets taken away. You guys have to realize that Sony gets bad press because of the actions of these people.
yea but you have to pay per session, on porn sites. with ps+, it comes with your yearly membership. :D
Live amateur for the win. LOL I'd watch it.
@NihonjinChick It's not a matter of defending this. The fact remains that if you let your kids use a simple phone they can access free porn any time of day on sites like youporn and such. Parents need to use the bloody parental controls to prevent their kids from accessing things like this on their consoles. Now, I definitely do not agree with people streaming this sort of content on sites that are supposed to be dedicated to gaming but it's really up to twitch and ustream to monitor this. It's going through their service. What sony needs to do is permanently ban the console that was used when they find out who did it. That's as much as they can do.
@havasandvich "with ps+, it comes with your yearly membership. :D" You don't even need plus to watch the streams.
If people are doing it for fun, its Wrong But if someone is paying them to have sex so they make money, its cool s:
This is not irrelevant. I want to see very single amateur porn stream they put out. For...science....or something.
Man after my own heart. Love science man.
this is awesome. i should tune in more lol
VR sex games confirmed, these people are plowing the way for the rest of us.
Great advertising! Thank you Kotaku.
What a bunch of low-life animals. I hope that what these people are doing perma-bans their consoles and are charged with lewd and lascivious behavior. and please, no pathetic misguided Liberal rants about how they have some sort of right to do this garbage.
I have never been lucky enough to find a live porn stream on twitch :( but being a girl I bet I can make one and get a lot of views lol.
This is why we can't have Nice Things Then again we all knew this would be the outcome did we Not :/.
wonder if both party members know that the streams are happening..
Naw classic though, Girl- "Is your cam off?" Guy- "oh crap hold on." [walks over to TV and turns TV off] Girl- "thank you." Guy- "dont worry no one can see us now" [looks over her shoulder and winks at cam]
More free advertising for PS4. Some people don't realize that for most this is actually good and a selling point lol Besides, you can access all sorts of porn websites on your console be it PS4 or XBox. PS4 is just innovating, that's all lol
Yup this is very true there are people on this site prolly in this very section right now thinking "OH yes I get to boink smuts live feed because I don't have a web cam" or something like that. @#$% it, let live. Parents get your knowledge up you are supposed to be steps ahead of what your children are doing unless they have the wisdom to know what and what not to do and if that's the case they already know about sex and its repercussions.
Honestly, who cares? People can access porn anywhere at any time, so what's the problem? If people want to broadcast themselves having sex, fine, just let them age-gate their channel based on the PSN account or something.
I disagree entirely. The Playroom is not the place for that! There is a time and place for everything, the Playroom is not the place for X-rated fun time. The use of the Playroom should be limited to what the Playroom was originally intended to be used for. If people want to broadcast themselves having sex, they can go crazy. Just do it in a place that was actually made for that.
Until Sony releases an app or game to fill the void presented by your pro-censorship paradigm, you are wrong. Freedom baby!!!
You don't want to see this? Well WE DO :) naw really fell for you but this is the real world and if you're under 18 or a prent then set parental controls or your parents should have them set. If you're an adult then buck/man up it's not that big of deal. EDIT: You guys need to lighten up. Welcome to life where almost nothing is used the way it's supposed to. #2 Welcome to human nature. It's a bit*h but it's consistent.
They aren't in playroom. They are streaming playroom and having sex. You don't understand how this works? You can disagree but the fact remains playroom isnt a streaming service. Its a game you can stream using another service.
The point still remains. It wasn't created for porn.
yea either was cahtRoullete or Skype.
Neither was film, or magazines, or the internet. What the hell, people? Be responsible, take charge of what your kids are doing, and this isn't even an issue. Don't like it yourself? DON'T FREAKING WATCH! You're not forced to visit porn sites when you use the internet; you choose to seek them out. You have the option of avoiding it. Same on PS4. And TV. And pictures. Get over yourselves, people.
@Blacktar Chatroulette has a filter and they ban thousands of users daily for exposing themselves. They don't embrace old men touching themselves, something people on here are claiming Sony should do.
I never thought the social aspects and camera on PS4 would amount to anything, but I think the neatest thing to come out of this is all the tv shows made by people with the PS4 and camera. To restrict it is going to kill it and what makes it great. Less pc reporting, more freedom and letting the feature be.
Attention whores with self esteem issues. Once they've been banned repeatedly they'll eventually give up and they'll be left with a ps4 cam that goes unused. If you annoy an attention whore enough, they usually disappear on their own.
This stuff is inevitable. You think people are just gonna sit around and talk all day? Everybody wants there 15 minutes. I forgot Kotaku even existed
Damn I missed some live sex.. DAMMIT!!!
my gosh just looked at the live stuff, mmm no im not watching any of that lol.
I'm more concerned about the non-porn stuff being streamed, to be honest. Moms showing off their kids, chicks talking about their feelings, discussions about how bad the traffic is in the area. Those are FAR worse than porn...
lmfao good stuff.
PPL probably do this to on XBOX ONE. Why are they just directing this only at SONY? stupid article.
Microsoft Too™ Really now, you hear about this on Playstation because it's ACTIVELY happening on Playstation.
"Grabs crystal ball" Yep the same will happen on the Xbox One and N4G will be swarmed with articles on it.
Hey Sony, people are using your cameras to record themselves having sex. And using your phones and camcorders. Oh, and Apple, the same goes for you too. And Samsung, people are watching people have sex on those TVs you make. A lot of electronics and a lot of sex. The real question that should be brought up here is how is it that all these trailer park wannabe porn stars are able to find a PS4 camera while half the population of Neogaf can't seem to?
Has the same thing not been happening on the XB1 at all? I have yet to see any such claims. And it's definitely doable.
Probably wont see that because those xbox users gotta get a girl to have sex with them first. Just joking...
Wow. Did you really just go there? LOL
Wii-u Wii-u Wii-U, #ShotsFired
I've seen all sorts on these home made TV shows via the PS4. I've seen plenty of nudity, strip teases, drug smoking - you name it.
This is just awful.
Next Gen console gaming - So exciting you'll want it to watch you bang your girl.
I smell conspiracy behind these events ! Who is behind them , and what his goal from it ?
"IM SO FURIOUS THIS KIND OF HORRIFIC THING IS HAPPENING ON PS4" *later that night visits multiple porn sites on PC*
