Today Sony announced a new social initiative for PlayStation players called My PlayStation. It’s a new way to keep track of your profile and friends on your computers, tablets, and phones. While the PlayStation app has been around for quite a while now, this is a pretty nice way to be able to handle your PlayStation services without needing the app.
When you go to My PlayStation you’ll be able to sign into your PlayStation account. After you have signed in there are a number of things you can do. You can see your profile there, and you can update your pictures in it, as well as checking your trophies and your friend’s trophies. The biggest thing, in my opinion, is being able to message your friends. Sometimes I don’t have my phone on me and aren’t at my PlayStation, so it will be nice to quickly log in and shoot out some messages to friends to set up some gaming sessions or chat about last nights game. You can even manage your friends list on My PlayStation and add, remove, block players, basically what you would want from being able to manage your PlayStation account.
My PlayStation is live as we speak, so go and log in and check it out. It works with browsers on Windows 10, MacOS 10, iOS 10 or above and Android 5 or above. Sony has stated that while this is just the beginning, they would like to keep adding features to the service and make it a go-to social designation for PlayStation players. Based on what they also have on the PS4, I would assume that they will likely add access to your groups down the road, as well as events, for making and attending them with your friends. What would you like to see on My PlayStation, will you be using it? Let us know in the comments below.
