Are there any plans to expand PS3 friend lists?

[ Edited ]
16 replies 657 views Edited Feb 16, 2014

As a trophy hunter who owns a PS4, I am concluding the PS3 generation by going back & platinuming a bunch of games I never got around to.

 

However, quite a few of these games require me to play with friends (such as a BFBC2 trophy which equires me to knife 5 friends). None of my friends have these games, though, and I have like 110+ friends. I will not delete any, not even temporarily - I've done that before. It's a pain.

 

I'd like to know if Sony have verbalized or hinted at any intention of raising the PS3 friend list. If not, is that something you guys would like?

dought it, other then games that were confirmed years ago and only needed maintenance i see Sony mostly putting all its focus on the PS4.

the only reason PS3 is getting they games we are is because like i said they were set to come out years before PS4 came out.

Not possible due to memory limitations.

 

EDit - Yes I would love if the friend list cap was increased, I get like 3 - 6 friend adds on average daily & unfortunately I have to decline majority or be constantly deleting people.

The friends limit for psn has recently been increased to 2000. This applies to the ps3 and ps4.

Correct. You can have 2000 people on your PSN friends list, but you will only be able to see 100 of your PSN friends on PS3. Smiley Sad

Is there a way to shuffle them around on PS3, so that I can play PS3 multiplayer with my 200th friend?

From what I can tell no, I can only see the first 100 people who are active and not people who haven't been on for a while. Its a first come first serve bases.

if you have an external hard drive hooked up to your ps3 you can have as many friends as you would like. you would than be able to invite them to games. hope this helps those looking for a way to increase their friends list without deleteing those you already have. i have done this with a 1tb external hard drive

@millymill

Interesting, hadn't heard that before. Does it have to be a 1tb external hard drive, or would a smaller one work?
