Sony has increased the friend limit on PSN to 2,000 ahead of PlayStation 4′s launch next week.
PS4 supports up to 2,000 online friends, an expansion of the 100 friends limit for the PS3 system.
The PS3 system will continue to support up to 100 friends at one time. If you build a friend list bigger than 100 on PS4, Vita, network servers will automatically filter your friend’s list when you play on a PS3 system.
Additionally, you will be able to set and lock a pre-determined friends list to be used while you play on the PS3 system.
Support for the ability to display all of your friends in most applications and games is planned, however, some titles will be limited to the current 100 Friends limit.
