quick answer for ps4 friends

5 replies 127 views Edited Nov 27, 2013

how does the transition between ps3 to ps4 friendslist work. do you have to create a new account when you get a ps4? or can you use and existing ps3 account with all your ps3 friends. either way im creating a new account but im trying to settle an argument with a friend of mine. Smiley Happy

If you want to keep you friends you keep your PSN profile.  You just simply login.  If you make a new PSN profile you will have to start from scratch. friends and trophies.

AND

 

Just to keep you from being surprised like so many seem to be...

 

1) You will not get friend notifications on your PS4

 

2) Your PS3 friends will not be able to see you on your PS4, but you will be able to see them.

 

3) This will all likely be remedied sooner than later.




                               The truth will set you free... But it may sting a bit...

There is no such thing as a PS3 Account... it's a PlayStation Network(PSN) ID(account).  You are simply using your PSN account on multiple consoles.

Yup, as said above, you can see them online, but they can't see you (for now anyway, hopefully fixed in future update) but the nice thing is you can see who is on, what system they are on (ps3, ps4, PSVita) and what they are playing. The new PSN is a big improvement, and with the PSN App for your phone, you really have a LOT of control.
