Twitch remove PS4 playroom from stream lists

Streaming giant Twitch has removed streams of PS4 game The Playroom from its directory listings following an influx of non-gaming related broadcasts.

"We removed Playroom content from the directory because a majority of it was non-gaming related," the firm has told Polygon.

"We will look into adding it back as PS4 owners become more familiar with the games-only focus of Twitch content. In the meantime, you can view all of the amazing gameplay from PS4 broadcasters in this directory page on Twitch," it added.

This comes after Twitch this week issued a wave of bans on people who had posted objectionable and rule-breaking content with The Playroom.

On Saturday, a PS4 owner by the name of 'Darckobra12' used the system to display his partner naked on camera. The female appeared to be unconscious. Later in the weekend, the user was banned, reportedly along with several others.

There's no word on exactly when The Playroom will be returned to Twitch directories, or what Sony may do to curb off-topic broadcasts using the game.
