Re: Is there a way to appear offline on the PS4?

Actually it's a huge ordeal if u constantly receive invite for games when trying to watch a movie. They need to put an offline status to keep this from happening

Yeah  this should have been added by now. Everyone likes a little me Time now and again without feeling rude by not responding to friends , especially real life friends who can take it too personal .

regardless of the comments, this is an option people want and should be included with a next gen console


This has nothing to do with being next gen. Just a feature you wish for thats not currently there.

If they are real friends just tell them no you are busy. If they take that the wrong way there not real friends or do not understand you.

I would pay $4.99 for this feature to be on my PS4 though it should be here. 360 had it just 1 more thing I miss from the 360.

I know you can change your comment on the PS3, I have not looked to see if you can do this on the 4, but you could always put "busy" in your comment.

Right Sony no more being nice, pull your finger out and get this feature sorted out. Every single day I'm getting invites from the same few guys resulting in me having to sit there with them till I come off.

Don't get me wrong I like all my friends, but being constantly asked to join a party everyday is absolutely annoying. I've actually stopped playing as much now because of this feature being absent

You seem to forget our friends have friends and some of them have attitudes that we don't click with, not that their bad guys, just not people that I would associate myself with offline

I shouldn't have to create ALT accounts or anything of the sort to get round this, I honestly fear for the future of PSN if you find something this easy, which even social networking sites had over 10 years ago, hard to implement

You have no idea how badly this is wrecking peoples online experiences, sort.it.out

Does anyone know if there is a way to appear offline on the PS4?  I know there is on the PS3 by editing your comments.  And no I am not trying to hide from anyone (most of the time), but when I let my brother in laws play my PS4 I want to showt offline, otherwise I constantly get...Hey so and so just sent you an invitation or a message.  I would just like to be able to alleviate that hassle lol.  I know I could create another account/profile for them, but it would just be easier if I could show offline.  Not to mention sometimes I just don't want to be bothered by people =) !!!!!

I usually just sign out of the network, my PS4 is still connected to the net that way I just can't access friends features and stuff.  I just wish we had an "away" setting like the yellow dot on the ps3.
