PS4: ‘PSN Live’ feature back online following European launch restrictions

PlayStation 4’s Live feeds have been turned back on by Sony, after they were disabled to ensure a smoother European launch.

Sony tweeted yesterday that feature had been turned on again, and essentially what it does is shows you related, game-specific activity among your friends list.

So let’s say you’re looking at Resogun and you have Pat as a friend on PSN, the dash will likely pull in videos of him swearing at Resogun after being killed for the 100th time. It’s a neat feature that we got to play around with pre-launch, but it can be dangerously counter-productive, like clicking through several YouTube videos when you only wanted to watch one.

It follows the PS4’s ‘What’s New’ feature being turned back on from Monday.
