Does it Beamer? You may be surprised I man up when I'm wrong, but it's never a surprise you ham it up like a child on the few occasions you are actually right.

Well I'm glad you feel good about yourself Beamer, it's a win for you hurray!

"PS4 cameras sell out due to twitch popularity" makes it very clear. original title, not so much despite your breakdown.

I don't even know what to say to you, but this explains a lot of your posts. Nearly all of them, perhaps.

I apologize if English isn't your first language. In that case, I shouldn't mock your reading skills.

Brian Crecente thanks you Beamer, he couldn't have defended himself better.

However the fact is the title purposefully misleads, and the article doesn't try to differentiate much. I didn't delve deep, my bad. But the article should be titled "PS4 cameras sell out due to twitch popularity".

See the gigantic difference? No, you don't.

Because there is none.
Let's break the title down:
"Blame" this means something is a cause
"the popularity of Twitch" this means Twitch is popular
"for" this means the popularity did something
"the lack of PS4 cameras" this means it's hard to find PS4 cameras

Putting it all together, Twitch is a popular service, and due to this there are no PS4 cameras. Or, in your words, PS4 cameras sell out due to Twitch popularity.

You read it wrong. Then you doubled down. Idiots everywhere thank you, as they couldn't do a better job of making them look good by comparison.

Best case scenario, you have no clue what the difference between "for" and "on" is. But "Blame the popularity of Twitch on the lack pf PS4 cameras" makes no sense.
In reality, you somehow think the headline is "Blame the Popularity of Twitch On PS4 Cameras," which arguably uses most of the words in the actual headline but not in the way the headline does. And would imply Twitch's popularity is a bad thing that needs blame.

No you pretty much misread it start to finish.

As for twitch itself, I like the service but the lack of archival on the PS4 broadcasts is pretty annoying. I know its being updated in a firmware revision soon though.

Twitch is extremely popular among young gamers who used to like spending time perusing youtube vids of their favorite games like minecraft.

However the new PS4 has nothing to do with twitch's popularity, what ignorance. How in the hell do people like Brian Crecente get published?

Are you being intentionally dense?
There's no effin way to read that the way you read that.
1) He didn't say the PS4 was responsible for Twitch's popularity
2) Crescente also didn't make the conclusions, the article is almost entirely quoting someone from Sony

Jesus, man. Just... Jesus. Somehow you read a bunch of quotes from Sony that they misunderstood how popular Twitch was and how that would make their camera more popular and your takeaway is that it's an editorial about how Twitch is only popular due to the PS4.

You're something special.

Well I don't really understand the twitch thing either, but I guess its like facebook for gamers.

I watch a few Twitch streams on a regular basis and have participated in a few MP matches that were streamed by others. I think what drives Twitch is the same thing that has made YouTube "Let's Play" videos so popular. It's entertaining to watch people do things that you like to do. What else could account for the popularity of fishing shows and watching people play golf?

I like streaming with twitch but I don't feel the need to broadcast my face while I'm doing it. Some of the streams can be pretty fun to watch, the sports streams in particular can get hilarious.

They actually have a sub for the playroom, and had to flag it as NSFW from the get go. Sex, people using bongs, etc...it's a scary, because at some point it's going to go too far (if it hasn't already) and then there's going to be repercussions.

Apparently there was a grown man in a diaper on the other night. Someone posted pics on r/ps4... <shudder>

I'll just stick with watching game streaming.

That's a Kickstarter I'd be willing to go in on.

Agreed. For the life of me I don't understand what is driving the crazy adoption rate of it but I'm happy Sony made it optional.

Rather ironic they're the console that left it out of the box, but then sold 900K plus of the things. But I appreciate that it was optional. Was probably my biggest concern, until MS was forced to backtrack.
