PS4 Getting Friend Notifications, Video Suggests

Much-requested feature might be coming soon, according to new video.

No Caption Provided

Sony on Thursday released a new PlayStation 4 video that suggests online friend notifications, a much-requested system feature, might be coming to the console soon.

At the 10-second mark in the video below you can see a friend notification appear in the top right corner of the screen during a Destiny mission.

We weren't the only ones to notice, as several commenters caught the tease, too. Here's what some of them had to say:

  • "That logged in notification though"
  • "happy about friends notification coming finally but seriously sony you should be embarrassed it took you so long"
  • "How you got that log in notification ? Is it gonna be in a new update?"
  • "So basically Sony adds friend notifications after year of asking them? Community friendly you say? This is why I started disliking Sony."

Sony hasn't yet officially announced a friend notification system for PS4. We'll keep an ear to the ground, and update this post with anything we hear from the company about the feature.
