Ps4 doesnt tell me When friends log on.

I would love Sony to add this. I Believe both the Xbox and Ps3 did this. When I am playing a certain games and my friends log on to play another game, the console won't alert me of that. Kind of sucks. Hope this comes back. There is notifications for everything else but this.

Yea no kidding. I was wondering why they left that out. Maybe they did it because with the 2000 people you can add, it might get annoying after a while.

I thought maybe there was an option to turn it on, just never looked for it. I guess there isn't.

@RiKanKiDD: I tried looking for this as well. I agree with the 2000 friends getting annoying after awhile but maybe it could notify you if your friend just logged on and is playing the same game?

Agreed. Hopefully this gets added in the future. I wouldn't mind a system where you could designate certain friends as favorites and only get notifications about their activity as far as signing in, signing out, or starting a game.

Yes, and they also need theme support put on the PS4.

Well even with the 2000 friends they should give us an option for the PS4 to notify us when certain friends log on.

In some games it shows you if you have friends playing online. Would be nice to have the option though.

Its just an oversight from Sony dont worry more features are on there way give them abit more time they have done the right thing focus on the main parts and the rest later.this is just the beginning

You actually can control your notifications. Settings > Notifications. They'll probably patch it at some point.

it doesn't really bother me, it would be nice to turn it off and on though

My friend who read up on this said the feature is available. It also allows you to turn it off for video watching, or gaming notifications while gaming. It will have this feature available. I wish they did that for the PS3, how hard can it be ?

I love this idea. Sony, please make this happen.

They certainly do. Everything is so plain, I miss my campfire theme.

I signed up for Music Unlimited. It allows for music in-game & does play list. I also got skins for my PS4s. I don't recommend standing the PS4 upright. It makes the fan go louder. My wife loves Knack. It's 2p co-op drop in drop out. Sony just needs to add a few things to the PS4.
