/// SOLVED — Why You Can’t Change Your PSN Name

“We don’t want to make it so that you can go in, grief a bunch of people in Far Cry, change your avatar, change your username, go into CoD and grief everybody over there. We want to stop that,” he said.

“[We want to do name changing] in a way that’s transparent, but also don’t let people morph themselves, either.

“And yeah, it’s terrible that you have to make decisions on a service sometimes by optimizing around the bad actor. I hate that we have to do that. So we’re trying to balance that between… the 99 percent of users going to have a good experience, how can we help make that happen without giving one more tool to the bad actor to go in and ruin the experience for others?”

/// G4 to Shut Down at the End of the Month

NBC Universal has finally pulled the plug on the G4 channel. This is not a huge shock to the network, as they stopped putting further investment into the channel back in 2013 when there was talk of it being replaced by Esquire. The replacement fell upon a different channel. Though, it was decided that G4 would not air any new shows, but rather continue to show reruns of LOST, X-Play, Ninja Warrior, and Heroes, accompanied by an occasional movie.
Great Plains Communications will be removing G4 from the channel lineup, effective November 30, 2014. [Source]

/// Sony on Driveclub — “You can’t effectively test” For Live Performance

Layden said that Evolution has made huge steps forward for the racing genre – things the Gran Turismo team hasn’t done – and melding that with an “uber-connected experience” didn’t work out.

“They tried to do the best, newest, greatest thing ever to happen in the driving genre and they hit a hiccup,” he said, rather understating what I would describe as not just a burp but a full on chunder. [Source]
