I thought it was a PS5 beta but disappointed that it's PS4 as the PS5 really needs updating.

 

But if anyone needs my code i'll just leave it here, works on 20 accounts and i have no use for it.

I hope they don't forget to increase the subscription of their ''services'', they are offering us so much they feel they need to keep removing stuff....

...And I'm almost shocked to see they didn't remove the activities feed while they were at it. Never really used Communities myself... but a a lot of people--including folks I know--are gonna be worse off for the removal of another social outlet in These Uncertain Times™. It's hard to come up with worse timing to do something like this even if you try really hard... like, supervillain hard.

 

Haven't a clue what the suits in PlayStation Towers are thinking. What, is "minimalism" their mantra of the month? The diametrically conflicting concepts of Removal and Improvement are only one and the same, ever so rarely...

I personally will miss the communites as being a mod in a inclusive LGBT+ community on the PS4 led me to meet and get to know many fellow gamers from all around the world even though this was bound to happen as they have been phasing out out many social features (can't even send a message with my friend requests anymore).

I find it odd that Sony didn’t make their platform more social, like a social network page almost. They have the whole “likes/comment” thing going on and could’ve made it go further, but the app overhaul got rid of all such features and the PS5 has nothing of the sort either. Though the UI is quite fresh on the PS5 considering there aren’t even themes available, so perhaps it’s still in the works.

Those asking why it's being removed - it's moving in-line with the PS5. Instead of adding the feature to the PS5, they're removing it form the PS4. Chances are, when PS5 stock is normal, they'll add a newer version of the communities to the PS5 OS.

Regarding activity feeds though - some regions actually have a replacement on the PS5, I think NA has it and maybe Japan. that highlights new releases, news updates, and I think it was going to show what you're friends are doing - as the PS4 version does now. But, as it's only in a few regions atm, that's still being tested on Sony's end, I imagine.

I'm hoping features like being able to mute certain people and hide certain games from being seen will make it to the PS5 soon - hiding the game is great for us reviewed as some PR and Publishers ask us to hide our account if we play certain games pre-launch, this'll mean we can just hide one or two games.

This is a good point, and true for almost every community I joined. The most recent one was for Contra Rogue Corps; while trying to lay out a guideline for the people involved, I was told basically "you're not the boss. we don't need you. you can leave if you don't like it". so, I left. Literally, the very next day, they were all messaging me to come back because they were lost and literally couldn't perform the tasks without me.

 

Then, I got to read all the shit they said about me after I left.

 

Good times.

Jeez, people are so toxic.

Communities was such a poorly made feature (IMO). Discord is just miles ahead of it & somewhat off topic, the PlayStation App is so garbage, like literally, you’d think it was made by a single 12 year old. Didn’t they already delist the PS communities apps from iOS & Android ages ago?

Sony would have been better off just patching in a Discord App and leaving it at that.
