PS3 Online Login Status

9 replies 1668 views Edited Dec 9, 2008

There definitely should be the ability to set your online status in the same way that you can with Skype.

 

I don't always want my friends to know that I am online or when I last logged on. It's a breach of my privacy for them to be able to keep track of when I am using my PS3.

 

This should be something considered very important and I have not yet seen anything other than setting yourself as "Not Available" which simply means that you just don't want to be disturbed.

 

Anyone know if this is something in the pipeline?

Changing the status to "Not available" doesn't make you invisible does it?

 

I thought it only stops people from sending you a message, not seeing if you sign-in.

 

Can someone confirm this please?

Yes. It does still work. I have done it as recently as last week. You can appear to Offline to everybody on your friends list while you are really Online. You can play games Online and go into Playstation Home, but everybody on your friends list will see you as being Offline. Here is a link to a thread that explains in great detail, how to appear to be Offline on PSN while you are really Online.

I haven't heard of anything.

 

However, I would love to be able to be signed into the PSN, on my PS3, without anyone knowing.  It would be nice to be able to hop in an online game on occasion without anyone knowing (and asking me to join their game or play something else).
