Facebook PS3 PS Vita TV PlayStation

Sony's dumping Facebook functionality from the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation TV. The features will be fully terminated in January 2016, though various applications have already been removed from the PlayStation Store. "We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your understanding," a spokesperson said.

In truth, it's not an enormous loss, with the PS3 merely allowing you to irritatingly share Trophy data with your friends. We suppose that some of you may be using the Vita app to stalk your pals, but the handheld's web browser will still be an option. This all follows the removal of YouTube and Google Maps from the device, as it stumbles towards the end of its life.
