GET AN APPEAR OFFLINE BUTTON NOW!!

Jul 25, 2014

when i first got my ps4 back in jan this is the first thing that i was left scratching my head over...why sony have you not implemented an extremley simple feature which is a basic function for ALL online soocial outlets.. surley it should be up to the gamer if they want to be left in peace to play something else or just chill out without having to explain your actions to others.. i mean i paid 400 quid for the machine surley i should have the right to appear offline? this is very dissapointing that a feature so basic and nessesary has been left out. people who say "why appear offline just no" are obviously very simple people...the bottom line is everybody is different and the option should be there it is on every other online social outlet.

 

SORT IT OUT SONY THIS IS BASIC STUFF!! BY THE WAY YOU ARE RUINING MY GAMING EXPERIENCE AND MANY OTHERS

Sony is drpping the ball on OS features, the system is still gimped when it comes to features......We still cannot pause downloads or get friend notifications, most of this should have bene in day 1. Not sure wha's wrong with sony on this.

Yes Foster, 

 

PS4 should copy these options as  X360 and XOne.  Is a generation behind in this type of options.

That's odd because even the PS3 let you pause downloads. So much for "next gen".

Just log out, you don't have to be online all the time...

If you don't want people bugging you either delete everyone or log out...

Simple as that, it should show what you are doing so if people bug you while on netflix they are rude....

 

The offline feature has been on the ps3 forever and i never used it and still haven't...

"Just sign off!" "Just disconnect your internet!"

God, I hate when people give responses like this, so unhelpful, if you're gonna state the obvious and not provide a solution then don't say anything at all!

 

Personally, coming from the 360, I was baffled that the PS4 doesn't include this feature.  There are very serious, real world reasons that it is included with most online services, and I'm surprised that Sony just glossed over it like this.

Hmmm........So you want friends but you just don't want them to bug you when you want to be left alone. Seems like quite the conundrum.Woman WinkWoman Happy

 

I don't have a PS4 but isn't there a "Notification" option to turn off the invite or message Pop Up and chime so you don't see or hear it?
