On the PS4 running commentary to the right, you should be able to highlight someone's post, click it, go to their profile page, and add them as a friend, send them a message, etc. Why is that not implemented? Should definitely be added in as a feature.

He's really out of touch with gaming, great guy though. Someone from GAF should seriously host something like this, definitely has potential!

I was posting in his feed. Not a bong. It was a Shisha/hooka pipe. When I found out he had been with his other half for 10 years but was not yet engaged, I plugged my new online jewellery store lol.

Twitch shows are nothing new. Welcome to streaming, consolers!
nothing new? Well it did launch in 2011 ..so it is new considering its really starting to catch on from this year alone. And why does console gamers have to be new to Twitch? The internet surely is not anything new by any means.

This is pretty awesome. Can't believe the XBO is missing out on this at launch, especially when every console is packed in with a camera.

Btw, what's to stop someone from starting a porn channel or something? Surely not every stream can be checked.

A drunk, drugged up, bike thieving dude claimed he'd get his GF to pose naked before his Channel was promptly closed...lol.

Even if they had streaming at launch, they'd still need an AR/video feed software to do this.

Lol. Netflix and Hulu look almost outdated compared to the potential entertainment value of live streaming.

Even if they had streaming at launch, they'd still need an AR/video feed software to do this.
Surely it's possible to develop that?

I dunno why I watched Spartan for a few hours but I did. Theres really no discussion going on, a lot of self pimpage and to much PS Fanboying going on. He needs to change it up and not be so concerned with getting Jimmy Fallon and Yoshi-p on their show if he wants to make something of it, cool guy otherwise. Best of luck to him.

Cool stuff so far but most of these PS4 streams have horribly devolved Twitch into something its not meant to be.
Even though some are genuinely hilarious

Watching all those streams is surprisingly addicting, you never know what you're in for... User generated content FTW.
