    Love it or hate it, the social media integration won't be going anywhere. It's staying put.

    People clearly love streaming according to Twitch:

    By the Numbers


    • ~10 million daily active users
    • 2.2+ million unique content creators per month
    • 22+ thousand members of the Twitch Partner Program
    • 106 minutes watched per person per day
    • 2+ million peak concurrent sitewide viewers
    • 65+ million raised by the Twitch community for charity
    I'm pretty disappointed that I STILL cannot easily change my background wallpaper to anything I want.

    Just got sent a beta code. But the update is so bland I'm not sure I should bother.

    Disappointment implies being excited about a firmware update in the first place.

    Can go both ways, I have no interest in changing my PSN ID
    On Xbox I was forced to use it cause the stupid system auto assigned me a name

    The auto-assign change later move by Microsoft is actually brilliant as it gets people to sign up without any hassle whereas otherwise they might just bail on it.

    I know this purely because I found out my old man has a Gamertag the other day and 495 GS.

    Which is really just a measure to stop abusing it in the first place.

    And on the "old" system you would have needed to pay either way straight from the start.

    Also in the scheme of things it's like no money if it really bothers you that much.
