Sony Launch My PlayStation, A New Way To Do Stuff You Can Already Do

Sony have launched My PlayStation which they describe as “a new social destination on the web,” which is a rather generous description in my opinion. So, what can you do at this new web portal?

  • Find Friends
  • Edit your Profile
  • View you and your Friends’ Trophies
  • Send and manage Friend requests
  • Send Messages

Not exactly going to give Facebook a run for it’s money is it? As many have pointed out, you can do all of the above using the mobile apps but Sony seem to be very proud the the website works on mobile devices.

“Our goal is to bring you a compelling social experience even when you’re away from your console. We’ll continue to enhance and add more features to My PlayStation on a regular basis, so make sure to keep checking in,” say Sony. Maybe having some compelling social experiences when you launch would have been a better idea?

    I’m not keen on the massive photo on screen when you first get into the website, that’s enough to make me come straight back out again.

    Thre’s a slim chance that i’ll use this more than than i used the apps – never had much reason or inclination to access psn when i’m away from my console, apart from the store which has it’s own webpage – but visiting a webpage is always going to be more appealing to me than using a mobile app.

      There was a brief time when webpages were a bit crap on phones, and apps came along and solved that problem.

      But then web browsers on phones caught up and apps are generally unnecessary for most things these days.

      Except for those things that still insist on making you use an app when making the website work properly on a phone would be simpler and probably cheaper to develop. Apps generally aren’t the preferred or required option because they’re better for the user.

      So kind of well done Sony for doing what they should be doing anyway, I guess.

    This is great! As someone who works at a computer, it’s frustrating having to send messages to friends through the mobile as opposed to just switching over to a new tab on my desktop PC and using a full-sized keyboard. Top stuff. :)
