Other users sending an 'Away' user any communication, be it a game invite or a PSN message should recieve a prompt such as... 'The user you are trying to message may be away, and may not respond to your message', or similar.
Yes exactly my point, it would be a very handy feature for people not wanting to be rude and maybe just have time to game for an hour or 2 and don't want to be bugged. I hope Sony hears this and adds this in an update
EASY!!! Be online, signed in, playing online or streaming or whatever; but have your status say you are offline, just like it would say if you were offline. I don't understand why we have to beg Sony for this feature. Any social media app/program has features like this since the dawn of time. This is even more important now with features like game streaming with the PS NOW or MMO type games like Destiny. You HAVE to be online but you don't want to be bothered or even for others to know you're online.
