Playstation Extends PSN Friends Limit from 100 to 2000

PSN expands friends list from 100 to 2000 friends.

Tired of being unable to have more than 100 Playstation-playing friends on your PSN friends list? Good news, Sony has announced that they are upping the amount of friends from 100 to 2000. 

The news broke on the Playstation EU forum, and Community Manager Envisager wrote that, “Support for the ability to display all of your friends in most applications and games is planned, however, some titles will be limited to the current 100 friends limit.” 

Now, the PS3’s XMB will only support the 100 friends limit, but you can curate this friends list on your PS Vita, and the Playstation 3 will pick the top 100 most active members at that particular time to represent your 100. The PS4 will support the two-thousand friends limit. 

You can now add up to the new limit of 2000 so time to get adding to your next gen buddies.

For most Playstation Network users, this news will be a sort of a shoulder shrugging exercise in “forever-alone” syndrome. (I myself only have one friend on the Playstation Network). But for people looking forward to multiplayer gaming at the launch of Playstation 4 with titles like Killzone: Shadow Fall and Battlefield 4, this is excellent news.
