Hey Sony, People are Having Sex Live on the PS4

By Luke Plunkett on at

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).

In case you're not aware, the new PS4 has a programme called Playroom. If own a PS4 camera, it lets you record yourself playing games then broadcast the footage on the internet. There are also robots who walk around "interacting" with you.

While popular streaming service Twitch was quick to act last year against certain "non-gaming" (read: topless "game shows") broadcasts on Playroom, and later pulled all Playroom listings from Twitch altogether, that hasn't stopped people kicking things up a notch.

Provided you're not "lucky" enough to catch them live, YouTube is the new home for clips of people doin' it live on their PlayStation 4. No "game shows", no pretence, just couples filming themselves hard at it. As you'd expect, most clips don't last long once uploaded, but that doesn't stop them from popping up. The images you see above and below, for example, are from videos that were still viewable on YouTube at time of posting.

Who cares? I care. Not for my own sake, or these people's sake, or the innocence of those viewing from home. No, I care because nobody will think of the poor little robot.

Look at it! So quizzical. So blissfully unaware of what's going on. He knows he wants to look, but knows not why he wants to look.

I'm sure this isn't the kind of content Sony had in mind when it designed the service. But now that it's here, something probably needs to be done about it. Not for the children, who probably know better places to look for better porn anyway. For the poor robots.
