Washington Couple Become Twitch Stars With PS4 Call-In Talk Show

Washington Couple Become Twitch Stars With PS4 Call-In Talk Show

Say hello to The Spartan Show.

A Washington state couple managed to rack up more than 200,000 Twitch channel views in a single day with their impromptu call-in program, The Spartan Show. The pair started streaming from their PS4 PlayRoom pack at 1pm Pacific, just chatting, and callers started phoning from all over the world to join in. It didn't take long before Sony got in on the act, and VP Adam Boyes took time out to give them a call.

"Better plan on doing this on a regular basis," he said. Shuhei Yoshida is a Spartan Show fan, and the show's numbers spiked after the official PlayStation Twitter account gave it a boost. Whether or not the couple keep up with their early success is up to them. It all started as a way to tell people about a DualShock 4 mod and went a bit off-script from there; the pair kept the show on-air for as long as possible, but it's dark right now.

The PlayRoom might not have been intended for this kind of fun, but if these two can do it, anyone can, and will. In the meantime, The Spartan Show's due back online soon, and if you want in, the feed's over here.

"What was your name again"

I don't think she truly realized the level of awesome that just transpired.

On the one hand, that is really cool. That is one part I love about the internet. Community. Sharing. The global village. Making conections and friends all over the globe in minutes, rather than communications taking months.

On the other, I am extremely pessimistic. With internet community comes internet anomnymity and all the dickwads that dwell in cyberspace. You just know someone will try and ruin the Strahans' day. If this keep up, you know that there will terrible jokes, prank calls, and death threats just around the corner. This will happen because idiots are bored, jackasses will think it's funy, and jealous crazy people are envious of such success.

I hope it doesn't happen, but I will not at all be surprised if I hear about it.

That's already been done. Oh I don't mean their show, good luck to them, it will be fun for them but nothing to profit of unless they get recruited by like Polaris. I mean just how stupid people are across this grand old world. And if you actually took the time to look you would see how stupid people are when you empower them with technology. I already saw it and my god...

Hilarious part is there really is no solution, people are just going to be idiots sometimes.

It's been brought to my attention that I misnamed the Spartan Show couple. The article has been amended, and I apologize to the Spartan Show for the error!

So PS4 made Twitch the new youtube. Okay.....
