There are a bunch of unofficial websites providing features that, frankly, Sony should as a standard. The likes of PSN Profiles, for example, offer in-depth Trophy tracking, while this new website will document your PlayStation 4 play time. Getting set up with PS Timetracker is a little convoluted, as you’ll need to send a dedicated account a friend request.
Once the bot has accepted you, though, your play time will be tracked. It’s worth mentioning that you’ll need to be appearing online in order for this to work, so any games you play while hiding your status won’t be tracked. The website divides your data up between number of sessions and overall play time, and you can view daily and monthly breakdowns.
The site is also keeping tabs on everyone’s cumulative sessions, and you can view the most popular titles in July so far through here. Unsurprisingly, the community has pushed The Last of Us: Part II straight to the summit, although evergreens like Grand Theft Auto V and Fortnite aren't far behind.
We’re a little concerned how scalable this solution is; the website’s currently only tracking around 2,000 players, after all. Nevertheless, right now this appears to be flawlessly providing a valuable service that we’ve been eager for Sony to add for quite some time now – give it a go and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
