Re: PS4 will have 2000 friends list limit

What if I have more than 100 friends and go on the PS3?


No one knows. Since upping the limit on PS3 to 2,000 could overload the PS3, it does seem a bit of an issue. My brother in law came up with one idea how it could be done though. Since there will most likely be an option of sorting friends into different categories and such, my brother in law's idea what that you could have one category where you could put up to 100 PS3 friends, and that category will appear as your friends list on PS3.

PS4 will also support 3D gaming and your PSN ID and avatars will carry over from your PS3. I don't think anyone needs 2000 friends but at least they shouldn't have to hear any complaints about raising the friends list limit ever again.


I just want it to be sortable, i.e. group these friends for FPS games, these for Driving, and those for everything else.

That's approx 1915 more friend spaces than Ill need lol. I only keep people on my list that vive regularly played with or actually know.

 

If 2000 is not enough for you .... Well you've got some serious complex issues.

Why will it even have a limit? It should be unlimited, as many as you want!

It would overload the system and become very confusing, Cross.

You can put ppl in groups/lists on the PS4, Sony confirmed this themselves. Also how in the world, would a friend's list overload the system?

Unlimited realtime database refreshes times millions of PSN users = network overload (but not an overload of your PS4).  I would greatly prefer the infrastructure to be geared towards robust gaming, not managing friends lists over 2000 people for PSN users that can't be all that selective. Think about it: 2000 is a lot of people.

 

It helps to remember that every last option we are afforded on PSN is afforded to all connected users at any given time.

I just hope we can put people into groups to have some form of organization. It would suck to scroll down to the 2000 person on your list


should be able to have different levels of friends also - best buds, general friend, long-time friend and new friend, and tags for how you know them - i.e. Playing UC3 etc.
