PS3, PS Vita, PS TV Losing Facebook Support Soon

Services will be terminated in January 2016.


Facebook support on PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation TV is coming to an end.

In its announcement, Sony made no mention of why it's taking this action. But it's not the first time the company has ended support for some features, as the PS Vita lost its YouTube and Maps functionality earlier this year.

"We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your understanding," Sony said.
