    PS3 Friends List

    Is the PS3 ever going to get a system version update to where it can have 2000 friends listed on it?

    I have 112 right now, and 12 of them don't show up on my PS3 friends list. When I check on my PS4, they're there. And it's random as to who doesn't show up. Sometimes people will be online and yet they won't be shown as online because they'll have an X next to their PSN ID and no "Last sign-in: XX minutes ago"

    I want to say no because I'm hoping they'll eventually focus solely on the PS4, but due to the fact that next gen is taking off at a snail's pace and the PS3 is getting just as many if not sometimes more games than PS4, it's quite possible they'll upgrade the amount of friends you can have listed online. What I do when I'm on my PS3 is just use the PSN app on my iPhone and it displays everyone who's online, even if they don't show up on the PS3.

    No. It's one more carrot for PS3 users to upgrade to PS4.

    Don't expect any new or upgraded PS3 features. PS3 firmware updates will likely be security-based from now on. For example, the 4.60 release is actually to kill off the Optical Disc Emulators (ODE) used to pirate / copy games on Official Firmware PS3s. Just as 4.55 was intended for the same purpose, but it only worked on 4K (SuperSlim) models and ODE makers found a workaround. This time it looks like Sony has killed ODEs for all PS3 models.

    Sony can't kill off CFW because Geohot blew the lid off their encryption systems, but they can control access to the PSN on both OFW and CFW with firmware updates.

    Yeah, it's not going to happen, otherwise it would've happened a few years ago at best. Sucks that your full friends list doesn't get displayed though.

    I wonder why they haven't updated it yet. It would only take a second to extend the friends list.

    I can imagine it taking forever to load 2000 friends on the ps3. The xmb is laggy enough as it is.

    Why would anyone want 2000 friends?

    Can you imagine scrolling through 2000 people just to find one person that you wanted to message?! Especially seeing as offline friends are not displayed alphabetically, it would take ages.
