Sony has increased the friend limit on PSN to 2,000 ahead of PlayStation 4′s launch next week

Friday, 8th November 2013 19:03 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

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.

Hit up the forums for more details.

    Are there a lot of chicks flashing their boobs on PSN?

    Because I don’t know anyone with 2000 friends who doesn’t do that.

    challenge accepted.

    i’ve already got 6 accounts maxed out on PS3 from different people. at this point its just frustrating as hell. i spend more time tryna figure out which friend is added to which account than actually playing any games with them.. -__-

    @7 yeah. mostly people i went/go to school with & a bunch from other places. social media friends & people from online matches mixed in would make it more, but i don’t normally add people i don’t know like that.

    This is lame! I mean ppl may follow but not befriend. Im already annoyed by ppl I have added but I have no idea what the connection was except maybe they were uber zombie players.

    Now (Insert a popular celebrity to make fun of here) can put everyone who thinks they are still (funny/good/sexy) on their PSN list!

    I was going to do a specific joke but there were too many to choose from.

    Justin Beiber-good
    Tom Cruise-sexy
    Jerry Seinfeild-funny
    William Shatner-alive

    Its good you will be able to follow certain gamers on PSN too, rather than just add them.

    2000 is so many… Good for people in the industry who probably get loads of requests. Useless for me.
