"You can now send event or party invitations to groups or communities."

"Notification messages are no longer displayed when Friends join parties."


Hitoemi1372d ago

They arent tell you everything its an option now that can be turn off or on in the settings

Abriael1372d ago

"Notification messages are no longer displayed when Friends join parties."

This is the best thing since the invention of bread.

Genuine-User1372d ago (Edited 1372d ago )

It is, indeed. Lol

Eidolon1372d ago

I'm pretty sure you can disable that already... what's the big deal?

UnHoly_One1372d ago

You want people to join your party and not know that they joined?

That seems like a terrible idea to me.

dantesparda1372d ago

Its already been there, don't believe me? Just go to Settings/Notifications/When Friends Join a Party

Abriael1372d ago

@Eidolon: the big deal is for the goons like me that never noticed because it was on by default.

XisThatKid1372d ago

Awesome that I had could be party notifications turned off a long time ago. I only get it when I get invited. Been that way since launch

You could always turn that notification off. I've had mine off for a long time.

akurtz1372d ago

yup!! you really have to check every nook and cranny to find little things such at this lol

Eidolon1372d ago

That is what excites you about this update? You can disable all sorts of notifications, including friends joining parties, since a long time ago.

KingKevo1372d ago (Edited 1372d ago )

"Notification messages are no longer displayed when Friends join parties."

This could have been done since a loooong time. The only change is that it is now deactivated by default instead of being activated by default.

Bahamut1372d ago

Yeah, this is all great and all, but really, all I want are folders. Or the ability to pin games where I want them.

instantstupor1372d ago (Edited 1372d ago )

God, yes. I like the PS3 interface a fair bit more than the PS4 for many reasons, but this is chief among them. Folders seem so easy to implement, and would tidy things up so much.

Cahhhmaaaan Sony, help me & Bahamut out here!:-p

I'm not sure posting a video was in the terms and conditions, good luck.
Probably a good idea to blank your PSN ID out next time, they won't need Sherlock Holmes to work it out.

Christopher1372d ago

Hey, even Sherlock Holmes has to take some easy jobs every once in a while.

FOLDERS. Why can't we do something all computing devices have been able to do since Windows 95 or before?

Seems basic features will be trickling out over the duration of this generation. I've been begging for appear offline since PS3 was in its prime, and here we are just getting it now.

Sunny_D1372d ago

I'm pretty sure the PS3 has always had the appear offline feature with the yellow blip that shows up on your profile avatar.

vacoby51372d ago

Sunny D, thats the appear busy that you're talking about. People want to be able to game sometimes without appearing online. Si they won't get party invites, etc.

ifistbrowni1372d ago

I might actually make use of this feature. I have a few nagging friends who always question why I play games the way I do. I play a lot of single player and they do not understand that.

I hate being asked to play online when I'm balls deep in a single player campaign/story. Especially when I'm tricked into switching games to play online, they play 2 matches, then they decide they're bored and they sign off...

Hitoemi1372d ago

Why do you need folders its a game console? You want folders Im pretty sure gaming PC's do that.

one2thr1372d ago (Edited 1372d ago )

Organization of downloaded games.

I suppose, it would make navigation a bit easier based on the content that a user places within said folders.

Ex- sort games by genres, etc.

The only option now is to scroll through a library of games and apps.

Christopher1372d ago

To honestly answer your question, it's likely because they use a very simplified file management structure that relies on an inflexible pointer/reference system.

psplova1372d ago (Edited 1372d ago )

Custom backgrounds are more important than folders imo. I actually like the way the games show up on my ps4.. It'd be cool to have custom background music added to the mix too I think.

AntsPai1372d ago

Downloading now, can't wait to create events for rocket league. Wooop

AntsPai1372d ago

Sweet you can see part of the message in the notification when you receive messages now!

generic-user-name1372d ago

Oh, nice, I hope there's more stuff like that, don't know why they won't just give us a full list of new features.

Hitoemi1372d ago

The invites to events only work if the person has the 3.5 beta at this point.
