You're Now Free to Befriend 2,000 Buddies on the PSN

Posted by Sammy Barker


If you have more contacts than a regional directory, then you may be delighted to learn that your PlayStation Network friends list has ballooned to 2,000 slots. Following the latest PlayStation Vita firmware update – and some meaty backend maintenance earlier in the week – the platform holder has boosted its online service’s buddy list ahead of the PlayStation 4’s impending North American launch.

As detailed recently, you’ll be able to see all of your associates on the platform holder’s latest devices, but the PlayStation 3's XMB will be locked to just 100 friends. The firm’s using a fancy algorithm to filter these on the current generation console, which will prioritise those folks that are currently online. Sony’s supposedly working to display all of your contacts inside the majority of existing games, but some titles will be stuck with the previous limit.

We never reached the old cap, so we reckon that we’ll never even come close to the new one. Still, the social gamers among you must be delighted to learn that you'll no longer need to pick and choose between your PlayStation pals. Are you planning an invite spree?

Had my PS3 for 3 years and I have exactly 3 friends, my 2 kids and my wife.

I actually have 1 more than that on my Wii U, but Il ike Miiverse more than I like playing online. Still don't use it much, but I like the concept.

The pop up telling you when someone is online or offline would drive me insane if I had that many friends... I know you can shut it off but I actually like it with the small amount of friends I have.

News: This still isn't enough for some because they got spoiled with the 5,000 facebook friends limit.
