PlayStation 4’s list of launch day PSN services has been updated by Sony, confirmed that a few small features will be turned off to ensure a smooth ride on day one.

Sony posted an update on PS Blog EU to explain that the company is expecting record numbers of PSN activity alongside current PS4 users in the States.

To help ease the server pressure, Sony is disabling PSN’s ‘What’s New’ function, which is essentially a feed that shows your friends PS4 activity like videos, trophies and so on. It’s also turning off the ‘Content Information Screen’ which shows your friends activity for the specific game you’re playing.

What do you make of Sony’s measures?
