Twitch Bans All Non-Gaming Streams

Posted December 4, 2013 by Ivan "Tech Curse" Mashkov in News

The next generation consoles are out the door with Sony being represented by the PlayStation 4 and Microsoft by the Xbox One. The launch of new hardware brings gaming into the next generation, however they also creates next generation problems for the makers of the consoles and other companies, involved in making video games. This is very true for Twitch, a site that allows gamers to stream their latest gameplay and commentary to the world. The game that has created so many problems for Twitch is Playroom, a game that is pre-loaded on each and every PS4 that is sold today. The game uses the PS Camera in order to create a living room augmented reality experience, which can be broadcasted on Twitch via the “Share” button on the Dualshock 4.This doesn’t apply to the Xbox One though, since Twitch will be coming to the console in 2014.

The Playroom has been used by various users to broadcast content that doesn’t belong there. There have been cases of abusing the system to stream content that doesn’t have anything to do with video games, including, possibly, nudity. As a result, Twitch has decided to moderate or disable any streams that are attempting to game the system. “FYI: We continue to moderate according to our Terms of Service. Non-gaming content is not allowed. Non-gaming content (c): If using PS4 Playroom, the content must be about games or gaming and within our ToS. Thanks for understanding.” – @TwitchTVSupport, the official Twitch twitter account. We will keep you updated on anything banned in gaming, so for your news, reviews and opinions check out our crazy team at Gaming Precision.
