Man Livestreams His Roach-Infested PlayStation 4

By Brian Ashcraft on at

In late September, a guy on South Korea’s Ruliweb posted that his PS4 had roaches coming out of it. He decided to take it apart and stream the experience on Twitch.

Apparently, at peak, his stream had over 30,000 viewers!

The guy, whose Twitch and YouTube channels are now called “Roach Man” in Korean, bought the PS4 used from another dude whose wife was going to throw it away. As tipster Sang points out, Roach Man noticed that his newly purchased used PS4 had a strange smell that got even stranger when he started transferring data. That’s when he saw roaches coming out of the PS4.

Roach Man purchased supplies like bug spray and decided to take a look inside.

The entire stream is nearly two hours long (and as Sang notes, the guy keeps saying, “Don’t buy used PS4s” throughout). Here are some of the highlights.

But this one was running around the PS4.

Lighting a funeral pyre.

There is still another 40 minutes or so after this, with Roach Man continuing to go through his PlayStation branded cockroach motel.

So don’t buy used PS4s?
