I haven't re watched this stream since a year ago, but what happened to half the features they announced there?

 

Specifically, I remember them saying you could trial any game. So far I only see demos of a few games on the store?  And being able to share your controller over the internet and have a friend help even if they don't have the game?

 

And also being able to watch your friend play?  It sounded seperate to the live streaming thing, as it wasn't to be broadcast to the wider world. It sounded like you could request to view your friends game and it was a 1-1 stream.

 

And more to the point of live streaming they made a huge thing about it but the quality is god awful.  Even OnLive had far better streaming quality than that :/

 

Unless my memory has just made stuff up now they promised a lot of stuff they didn't really deliver on.

 

That said, PS4 was the first console I bought for release day, and am really glad I did.  Especially with games like The Order coming up, I really feel I made the right choice this gen.  I will probably buy a xbox one further on down the road but not until some decent exclusives come out and they release a kinect-less model.

 

Sounds like Daylight is first to use some of the features you're after.

Tomb Raider features some sort of stream viewer interaction. Something to do with being able to influence death. Can't remember what it is off the top of my head.

I completely forgot about some of those early features they laid out. Its a lot of neat ideas that I would like to see them try to make happen honestly.

Most are probably gimmicky, but I know my GF would like me to take over her game sometimes to kill the big bad bosses :p She's not that bad really. Better than me at racing games to be honest, just doesn't have the patience for Dark Souls. Don't mention I said that though :shifty:
