You know how I told you about people using PS4’s Playroom and Twitch to make TV shows and porn? Well, apparently Twitch didn’t like that too much, and they’ve taken action.
Twitch has removed Playroom content from their directory and browsing options. Speaking to Joystiq, they explained:
We removed Playroom content from the directory because a majority of it was non-gaming related. We will look into adding it back as PS4 owners become more familiar with the games-only focus of Twitch content. In the meantime, you can view all of the amazing gameplay from PS4 broadcasters in this directory page on Twitch.
They included a link to the PS4 twitch channel where you can find plenty of other PS4 streams. In the interests of journalistic integrity, I ventured to that channel, and here’s one of the top hits – a PS4 playroom stream:

I apologize for any obscene content that you may see. It is playroom after all. Plus, from what I saw from the stream, people are saying rather offensive things to these people. Gotta love lacism. If they are finally acquiescing to demands on their live chats, they’re all naked and beheading chickens.
Yeah, I’m still not too sure about gaming content on this one, and I think twitch has a long way to go before the content will be top notch. That said, no one wants to be seen like Microsoft – pretending they’re not listening to everything and meanwhile swinging the ban hammer at will.

The solution is so simple. Twitch should create a sister site called Twat or something that rhymes. All the porn redirects there and they can charge people $10 a month to view it.
