They're going to discontinue PS Messages? Good. It'll surely be integrated in the main PS App at this point.

I'll happily see the end to PS messages. The constant rate my boobs messages, get boring after awhile lol.

So apparently party chat will be recorded now because of Playstation safety!

Well there goes privacy and the ability to have "private" parties rjscwdb.jpeg

Is your voice recorded just for party chat or all voice chats?

Anyone else notice everyone's Trophy Level jump by at least 100 or so (mine personally jumped from 30ish to over 400), is this part of the new update or have I just been braindead not noticing this for months?

WHAT!?!?!?!?! How is that legal? Is there anyway to turn it off? This is serious Big Brother Territory. 1984 was a warning, people, not a training manual!

This is probably the most out of character you've ever been, lol

I was so hyped when I heard Bloodborne avatars are coming (at last) but now that I saw them.. Low res with a dreadful red circle around them, ugh.

I dislike the circle avatars as well...

I have a theory they are doing this so they can ban people who say politically incorrect things in a party chat. I was more outraged over them removing the ability for users to create a private community. Now existing communities are allowed to stay but if you didn't make one before the cut off date you're shit out of luck. They should have removed that stupid follower system instead.

I just seen how to make a party chat. This is so shit. Now you have to click on a group chat in Messages to send those people a party invite and everyone in that chat will be invited. Why is Sony complicating things? The system was perfectly fine how it was and no one asked for this. 🤦🏻‍♀️
 

So now if you have a group chat of 5 but only wish to speak with 2 you have to make a separate group chat with those two. How idiotic is this

Yep absolutely retarded. 

 

They should better remove the follower system and the communities (they are completely useless since you can't really have conversations in them Imho)

I can't believe people were unaware they could be recorded in parties before...

 

I have shitloads of videos saved to my PS4 where you can hear me and my friends conversing. This is definitely nothing new.

 

If it makes you uncomfortable, turn 'Allow your voice to be shared' off in your party settings, which is also not new.

What could you possibly be saying to your own friends that got you so scared?

 

Every conceivable combination of obscenities.

literally... why make the thing worse??? How they thought this was a good idea is baffling. Parties were fine before so whyyyyy change it

"You can now join parties even if there are members that you've blocked. When you join a party with a blocked member, or when a blocked member joins the party, you'll receive a notification." Well, isn't that fantastic?

Seems like they copied other chat apps (WhatsApp, FB Messenger) with their party system. I don't see a huge issue to be honest. At least not with the way I use it.

If feel like the phrase "Don't try to fix something that isn't broken." has somehow been forgotten. None of this was needed, yet Sony just forced it out.

Maybe most of those changes were made to be somewhat similar to what PS5 will have?

 

I found about the update some hours ago, thankfully I didn't get any weird error after downloading it. Was able to play some Battlefront II without issues inmediatly after.

Dude... recorded by people you are in a party with. You really think your friends will record you and send it to sony?

As someone who never joins parties with random strangers you have nothing to worry about.

 

Since people seem to not be able to read: it is NOT sony recording you, the people you are in a party with have the option to record it... much panic for nothing.

 

I have friends of friends join parties and just hang around. They sometimes get pissed off at jokes people can say (nothing over the top, but you know how a party chat with a bunch of drunk guys can get out of hand...) and if one of the little twats wants to report you, they then can. When they weren't even welcome in the first place.

 

And i know what you'll say, set it on invite only, but not everyone does this by reflex. Although i will pay attention to it now.

Seems like people are having some problems with this update. Can you still sync trophies and go on the store and stuff without updating? I'm thinking of waiting it out for now.
