Playstation's Website continues to get worse: Losing Parties, Friends, & Trophy info June 28th.

99 posts in this topic

They continue to be more and more anti consumer. I don't use the site for much else other than messaging to begin with because of how godawful it is but wow..I don't wanna grab my phone every time to reply to messages. I would probably be more inclined to if the app functioned better. I use the site constantly to message friends. This is just another frustrating change. The PS5 literally has not changed since I got it day 1, anti social system...this actually is very disappointing. 

 

I can't believe instead of improving social aspects of gaming, they are going backwards..they really would be nothing without the words "Only on playstation" SIGH...

 

Shutdown communities with a long gap before discord comes to the console as well.....UGH

Couldn't agree more.

 

Now I also can't see my trophies on my.playstation.com, or I just haven't found out how. Anyone know? :hmm:

 

Read the title.

So, I tried to initiate game downloads from library.playstation.com the other day, and it wouldn't start! I've never experienced any issue with this before. Anyone experiencing similar issue? :hmm:

Same here. Obviously in my previous post, I was already anticipating that it will be awful, but only today I realise how horrible it really is. I feel completely cut out from my friends, since I can't check who is online or who wrote me, without actually being logged in to the PS, which is in another room than my PC, and even then I can't really answer them, because "typing" with a controller takes forever.

I have even installed Discord on my PC now (which I didn't want to do), but it is so buggy and I only have two people on there from my PS friendlist, and it won't help with communicating to coordinate sessions or write with people when playing.

 

Way of the world I guess.

Doesn’t seem to have impacted this site’s functions. Did it hurt any of the other trackers?

suure works probatly just as good as virtual pc especialy on my close to 10 year old pc with an old version of windows 7 since microsoft forced me to not allow updates anymroe after they tried to FORCE instal windows 10. also  even if I had a good pc   that would mean  i had to put that on my pc  start it every time  slowing down all other services and stuff on my pc  etc.

 

im not an icter  I wouldnt even know how to do it if I wanted it

I have a 10+ years old PC, too, but Microsoft never ever tried to force me to install Win10 and i was still able to get updates on Win7 as of November 2020.

 

ps: what's a "icter"?

here you are just lying  microsoft forced windows 10 on everyone  they got a ton of bad pr for it it happened to anyone who had an legal version of windows 7 and or 8

 

and its not about getting those update I was forced to disable them because clearly I cnat trust microsoft  with that power. also most of those updates are to ruin all privacy people haveand steal the same ammount of data windows 10 does.

 

the things that get send to micrsoft is just rediculus they see every website you visit how long every program you use  likely everything that you type even and I cna go on and on

 

what microsoft pulls there is worse then what most viruses etc do

Calling someone a liar is a bit harsh. I had 2 laptops that both had windows 7 at the time windows 10 upgrades were being pushed, and I was able to refuse them on both systems. It was never forced.

That's not true. I have a PC still running Windows 7 Ultimate and was never forced to update to Windows 10.

 

You make it really hard to be sympathetic to you when people tried to suggest all the practical solutions and all you do is reply with you haven't spent money on any technology for 10 years and you can't do anything about anything.

 

You've made it clear the only option for you was Sony not shutting down their services, but they went ahead and did so and now you're right. You have no options at all and can't do anything about it. The rest of the affect people are looking for solutions.

Actually, you're right. PS3s can still send messages to other PS3s. Those messages just didn't show up on other PlayStation systems.

Again, this is a false statement. Also Microsoft can do whatever they want with how long i use a program. All i use is WinRAR, VLC and Chrome anyway, and sometimes Nero Express.

I aksed around to over 50 people back then i was doing a lot with computers for family and friends  and they all had that issue. it was big news back then  people who hid that update that did it still got it in the end they made the notification in a way even that it didnt mather if you clicked on the cross or ok  or whatever it was force installed anyway

 

you dont even have to believe me you can google it yourself  the internet is full of it.

 

the only way to make sure you didnt get it was not update at all anymore. the forced update part is gone now  but that doesnt change the fact that they did do it  and I never found anyone  before who not had this problem back then when they had an compatible pc  also not on fora etc.

 

but nvm I am done with this discusion if I get called a lier  when I am talking about facts its not even an oppinion

It's very strange how Sony / Playstation have made their user experience progressively worse. 

 

I remember years ago (early 2010s?) when the Playstation Blog would give a rundown of weekly releases and new sales. The comment sections wasn't great but I even participated in that. Then suddenly it just got so much less personal. It went from a handful of authors you could actually connect and chat with to just copied and pasted eyesores. Maybe it's changed back to that, idk because I left the site for good. 

 

Then there was the whole ps3 webstore and wishlist fiasco... We have a wishlist again now but it's capped way smaller than the previous one. 

 

They nearly shut down the the vita and ps3 stores after pushing digital for a decade. They continue to strip away basic functions (see title.) 

 

The worst has to the the app though. How do you make an app so much worse than your previous iteration? My monthly spending has gone down quite a bit simply because the new store (on the app) is so clunky and hard to navigate. Do they even have a filter any more for least/most expensive?

 

I just got my ps5 last month and it's the same story. The dashboard is junk. The sounds options are awkward. They flipped what the Ps button does (short press versus long press.) Just so many stupid pointless changes. 

 

Honestly, the only thing that holds me back from switching to PC is my game collection (both physical and digital) and that I'm older now and too used to a controller. I guess I could just use a controller on the PC though.

No amount of website linking will change the fact that I wasn't forced to update to windows 10 on both my laptops, and I didn't do anything special except refuse the updates.
