Why does PS4 show which games my friends and I have recently played?

[ Edited ]

why does sony think its important for me to know what game i or my friends most recently played?

and what trophies they got most recently?

why is sony wasting time with this?

when i turn on my ps4 i dont want to waste my time seeing that stuff i just want to play my games

i thought thats what the ps4 is about...

didnt they forget about all my other media needs because isnt this a gaming machine?

but sharing this kinda personal information is important?

why?

You can disable it or ignore it if you're not interested.

Yes, you are definitely forced to browse the recent activity section before playing games, right? If you don't like it, don't use it and stop complaining.

How exactly is sony wasting their time doing this when it has already been completed?

i feel sony is wasting time with all this

they added a whole button just for this social sharing media...

why arent they concentrating on making better games?

Did you really complain then make a thread about it? Didn't Setz tell you how to fix it?

Seeing as people are actively sharing videos or streaming on a daily basis, no, they didn't waste their time.

Also since Xbox One has it, if ps4 didn't people would complain.

And they're making games. It's not like all their attention suddenly diverted to social media.

Games just take time

it was broken

i changed my name when i made my account on my ps4

not my psn name just that name it asks on the ps4

i didnt want it to show on recent activity and when i said no it still did

so i went into options and changed it completely

but it was still not changed on recent activity

i went on these forums and people figured out that the only way to do that was to change your avatar also and it will update that section

they are obviously gona have to fix that if they didnt already

Even though your real name shows up, everyone else sees your screen name.
