2,000 is a lot (way more than I need) but I am unsure why friends lists are capped in the first place.

ps4 is the best gaming platform, full stop.

the order 1886 looks amazing and more compelling than anything on the other inferior consoles. i can already see the praises since its being made by a highly skilled dev team. imagine what naughty dog is working on for ps4?

it seems silly to me to even consider getting inferior so called next gen consoles for more money when we know that ps4 will have the better games in high quantity.

if you are a gamer that cares about quality titles and quality exclusives with amazing hardware then playstation is it. it has been the best every generation since ps1.

a lot of FUD was spread about the ps3 but sonys message has stayed the same to make the best games possible for core gamers. look at the whole generation of the ps3 and you see other consoles with mass hardware issues and lack of quality exclusives but the extremists will tell you they had cross game chat. on playstation 3 people had a alot of quality exclusives that are highly praised and highly rated. even though ps4 is being released in about 3-4 months the ps3 has a lot of quality exclusives still planned for release and has had a lot released already in the year. its not so on the competitions console which hasnt seen a quality exclusive title for over a year and hasnt had a highly praised title for over 6 years.

ps4 first day

along with making PSN a standard internet app available on PC's and Mobile devices, this will be my go to social network.

wish they would make an unlimited "follow" feature.

How can PS4 be the best if it hasn't released yet?
pedrof93  +   760d ago
Have you seen any gameplay ? Full stop.

I really want to see some. I can't get excited just because of a fancy trailer. I read somewhere that it was a TPS ? Will it have a cover base system like Gears of War ?

But I'm getting a PS4 at launch anyway.

Just as you brought it up at least get the information right. It is a maximum of 1,000

"""Xbox One has Unlimited friends"""

did you even bother reading the news ?!
"Sony's new console will allow players to have 2,000 virtual friends, while Microsoft will support 1,000; PS4 party chat confirmed"

and party chat in ps4 won't need PS+ unlike Xbox where you need Live Gold membership to use it

like i said xbox fanboys keep post wrong info and try way to hard to feel better for paying 100$ more for a weaker console
and also post BS like Xbox have more Features when both have almost the same thing
xbox have the cloud
ps4 have Gaiki
Xbox have party Chat that you have to pay to use it
Ps4 have party chat and you won't pay for it
all the TV stuff ps4 have it as well and netflix is free on ps4
also ps+ offer tons of free games

as for games all the talk is subjective
no hard facts which game look better
just opinions and you can't judge console power by launch titles
if that was true then games like TLOU would have not looked on whole other level than ps3 launch titles
you can only judge a console
by it specs only at this time

Xbox One has unlimited friends. So I don't see how this is impressive.
Kryptix  +   760d ago

You can party chat on a PS4 without a subscription, that's new info and is better than Xbox Live's party chat which you have to pay. This means you can play free to play games while party chatting, still be able to use online features without paying. Free vs $60 a year, which one is better? And don't give that Xbox Live is better crap, plus you definitely cannot say it this time around now that it's equal except you can party chat on the PS4 for free. ;)
kreate  +   760d ago
100 friend is not enough especially if u play ps home a lot.

But 2000 friend is over-kill.

But I see some ppl w ridiculous amount of friends on fb, I say why not.
StoutBEER  +   760d ago
Okay so... you seem to forget that people care about CERTAIN games not just games in general. Halo is my baby and continues to be, it is the reason I got a 360, and it will be the reason I get a ONE. Plain and simple.

This was a reply to Hatsune Miku.

@Hatrsune-Miku I'm getting a PS4 day one but seriously, get off Sony's reproductive organ cus I gotta say Xbox One has a good lineup as well! I've found Sony's exclusives to just never really live up to the hype I had for them (Resistance, Infamous, GT). Killzone has to be one of the few Playstation games worth buying a PS4 for. Well, that and DriveClub.

yeah that's like saying you should never be able to take back any decisions in life you freak lol. I was 16 when I first got my PS3 and now I am 22. I would be lying if I said I have not matured at all and am a completely different person. Especially considering my name is based off of where I got my launch PS3 because it was the very last one in town. It's a nice memory, but we're moving onto a new console and it has been almost a decade. The option to change your name wouldn't be hard to include so I don't see why they wouldn't add it.
Veneno  +   759d ago

slaton24  +   760d ago
unless they added a feature where you type a persons name in and automatically find that person which would also be neat
sarshelyam  +   760d ago
Would it really? My PSN friends list is capped at 100 and at its busiest, I might have 1/5 of those friends online at any given time. Many of them are attached for social reasons, the remainder are found through each respective game's invite system (often listed online in the lobby portal when playing the same game).

It also sounds like you'll be able to filter those friends with a number of settings, both privacy-based and otherwise.

I think it remains to be seen, but I've never had an issue navigating the list on the current gens...with exception to XBL. I never understood why my friends list has to be populated by my friends, and the friends THEY are engaged in a party chat with.

The fact is that Sony owns more exclusive companies who make great games.

Look last 3 year exclusives on Xbox 360, look at PS3 and you see who is winner.
Xbox - Halo, Gears of War and Forza
PS - LittleBigPlanet, Gran Turismo, Killzone, Uncharted, God of War, Infamous, Ratchet & Clank and more and more.

It´s all about games!
truechainz  +   760d ago
Was that a reply to someone? Cuz the PS4 will be just as awesome without you randomly bringing up the 360
bigfish  +   759d ago
At the person who claims Xbox One has unlimited friends list,,, why would you even need that many?, also playstation owners are less bligerant and better gamers, if anything, ps4 would be better off with unlimited friends, but its a pointless feature to have it unlimited anyway
PSN_ZeroOnyx  +   759d ago
X1 only allows 1000 friends which will be way more than enough for most ppl. But I'm happy PSN allows so many just in case. Lol.
minimur12  +   759d ago

"also playstation owners are less bligerant and better gamers"

I watched some video about some guy tr5olling on xbox live saying 'i cant wait to get a ps4' and they were abusing him SO MUCH
and also, making references to donkey d**ks

I have never come across such profanity in a playstation lobby, it may be because i usually mute most people but when I don't notthat often I hear swearing (which is good because it comes straight out hte TV)

MWong  +   760d ago
Interesting Sony Q&A vid, 2000 is way more than anybody needs. Well already assumed your PSN ID would carry over since they announced you get to keep your PS+ current subscription. I wonder if it will be in 3 tiers like it is currently monthly, 90 day or annual or will it just be annual?

While I agree it's all about games I do have to say M$ has deep pockets and have proven that they are willing to pay for exclusive games or timed-exclusives.

A cap would be useful for someone who is famous on YouTube for example. I know this is what happens on XBL anyway. Once they reach a cap. If someone wants to send a friend request, they will be blocked from doing so. This will probably prevent a bunch of message pop ups on the screen say "friend request."
3-4-5  +   759d ago
Almost none of my real life friends play video games so I wouldn't even need 100 or 200 really.

The only way I could see it growing is if I joined a Team for BF4 or another game where your constantly playing matches against others.

I do a lot of single player or offline gaming as much as online.

I have a friend who was banned from Home because of her user name and Sony allowed her to change it, so it can be done. She kept all her trophies and purchased content.

You can change your Xbox live ID for a small fee I do know that.

Although, I would like to change my PSN ID as well. Hopefully something is introduced to allow this, because I couldn't find any solution.
_FantasmA_  +   759d ago
Small fee? M$ does not know small fees. $10 to change your name is not small.
HugoDrax  +   759d ago
I think the first time you change your gamertag it's free? Not sure, anyone can verify this, but I believe it's free the first time you change your gamertag. I have a Family GOLD account with my nephew/cousins with me having control over the account. It's actually a sweet deal, and allows me to transfer Microsoft points I may have left over to the other account members. They call it an allowance lol, but it's better than me using my credit card for their purchases.

Anyhow, yes $10 isn't a small fee for many. For me, it's not a problem as that doesn't exceed my budget. I already have

2 XB1's + 1 PS4 + extra dual shock + 2 extra XB1 controllers + new turtle beach's + 2 play and charge kits + Forza5 + DR3 + FIFA + Second Son + WatchDogs. GameStop will receive about $2,000 from me when the new consoles launch lol.

Hellsvacancy  +   760d ago
I've got about 12 friends on my list, I actually game and chat with these cool mofos, I used to have people on my list that I never even spoke to or gamed with, i'll be watching something like Breaking Bad and DemonSlayer817 would appear "online" and distract me from what i'm doing, pointless having him on my list I thought, I deleted loads of people along time ago for reasons like that

So having 2000 friends is irrelevant to me

MysticStrummer  +   760d ago
I have no need for a 2000 person friend list, but those 300,000 servers are virtual servers* shared with other products, not dedicated to XBL, and they aren't free to developers. EA and several others have their own servers so they're not likely to pay to use MS's.

*This is assumed because MS was asked and refused to answer.
WeAreLegion  +   760d ago
I doubt we'll hear more about this until post-launch. Microsoft won't let this one out of the bag. Lol.
Bzone24  +   760d ago
" *This is assumed because MS was asked and refused to answer. "

So then it isn't wrong to assume that the 4.5 gb ram rumor about Sony is true?
MysticStrummer  +   760d ago
"So then it isn't wrong to assume that the 4.5 gb ram rumor about Sony is true?"

Assume what you want, but the RAM rumor was at least contradicted by other "insider" rumors quickly. The virtual servers rumor has been around longer without being debunked. MS was asked and refused to answer.

The same goes for the PS4's GPU advantage. MS fans say specs haven't been announced, but GPU comparisons have been out there since at least the first of this year without being debunked by MS or a developer. No one has even said "I can't give specifics, but that rumor is false." like they did with this recent RAM rumor. Instead we started hearing about the Cloud, which has also been debunked, at least in terms of adding power to the console.

MS saw how people were reacting to the One and made major changes to their stated business plan. You don't think they would have tried clarifying rumors first if they could?

Bad analogy there bud. There are no reliable insiders saying MS magical cloud is a legit 300,000 servers just for XBL. But there are reliable insiders and numerous developers who have come out saying the 4.5 RAM crap is not true.
Bzone24  +   760d ago
I get it. Sony doesn't answer something it's safe to assume the rumor is false, Microsoft doesn't answer something it's safe to assume the rumor is true.

btw, I think the rumor is false too, it's just the hypocrisy here that is just amazing. We are talking about official statements on the subject. People saying its crap and then not saying what the real number is isn't really telling you anything.

@bzone - its not hypocrisy if its based on historical evidence. I'm not going to judge which company you should "trust" more but even in court there is a standard based on a person's character, when judging a company it is perfectly reasonable to view their track record in light of their trustworthiness.

MasterCornholio  +   760d ago
Still doesn't change the fact that Microsoft is charging you for party chat while Sony is offering the feature for free.

I never understood why party chat has to be behind a pay wall in the first place. I can understand online multiplayer to some degree but party chat doesn't make any sense to me.

Yeap. Even guy like me (MS Fan :P) think that charging people for TALKING to friends is really stupid.

That explain that screen pics and video showing friends in folders with different titles.. I think this is awesome thats alot friends.
Sevir  +   760d ago
Yeah, it's a nice touch that keeps it cohesive, and unified. Close Friends in a personal folder, and certain game centric friends in the respective folders. Witch is very innovative and necessary for such a large friend's list!

I would hazard a guess that the friend limit is in place to avoid piracy or hacking.

Good news but Id never need more than 200 tbh. Depends on your def of 'friends'.

Well I've been building friends on ps since Socom1 and EQOA..that's along time..nice to play wth old friends from way back then from time to time.but I know I don't have 2000 but who knows how many friends you'll make this gen.
Sarobi  +   759d ago
I've hit the max amount of friends at least twice this gen (had to delete some inactive ones), so it's good to hear that we won't have to worry about hitting caps (unless you are ultra-celebrity famous).

For me social and gaming goes better together.

Little less gaming for the Xbone, if 2010-2013 are any indication of future plans.

Lol, Right, Because The PS4 doesn't do movies shows and other multimedia features...

Xbox Fans are hysterical! They are Both Game consoles, both machines for mass entertainment, but only one had the gamers interest in mind first! Get over yourself...

Since you can't link your cable box through your PS4, you can no longer watch tv? Is that what you're saying? Why don't I just turn on my Wii U and watch cable through that?

...because it's a stupid feature. Nobody EVER uses it.

You'd get these many friends if you'd go online in CoD and send friend requests to every person you meet

That's just ridiculous. Even with the Xbox 360 currently capped at 100, my list is full of people that I've barely played with. 1000 is already way more than I need but 2000 is just silly to me. I don't know who would need an unlimited number of friends either but the fact that it's capped at all really doesn't make any sense.
CoLD FiRE  +   760d ago
Its capped because there are idiots who would fill up their friend list with 1000s of people they would never play with. That would be an unnecessary load on the network.
