It's really annoying that on PS4 streaming page the descriptions of the videos are never completed unless they are short. It's as though they only have a certain amount of room for descriptions but post the full descripition and let the system cut them off. Please fix this so that the descriptions are complete even if they are short. I hate reading incomplete paragraphs making me wonder what else was said in the descriptions.

I notice this problem elsewhere on the site too where the titles that are long are actually cut off with .... at the end. on the page where the thumbnails are the title "my mental choices..." was cut off. Ok so fine, I went ot the actual video page and guess what? The title was cut off there too! WTF? No where could I actually find the entire title listed, at least not anyhere easily found. I had to look up on google to find the rest of the title.

Come on CR, you can do better than that. This is really bad site design, in that aspect.

It would be nice if titles and such expanded, or have a scrollable text area in the app.

The full title should still be in the HTML code, which can be opened in Chrome by right-clicking on empty space on the page and either 1)clicking View page source and searching for the part of the title that you know, or 2)clicking Inspect element while your cursor is on top of the title text and drilling down until you find the full title.

If that's too technical, ANN should have the episode titles listed relatively quickly (depending on popularity), but they might not always be the official title you'd see on CR.

I realize I can look up the stuff in html and such but that just is counter-intuitive and not something I, as the user should have to do. I appreciate your added suggestion though.

Even if ANN ;has it, the point is it shoudl all be right there. Anything that makes me go outside the ui of the site itself is counterproductive both for the user and for the site's ability to give a good experience to the users.

I appreciate it tho.

Thanks.
