PS3 Messaging System to Be Stripped of PS4, PS Vita Support

Is this the beginning of the very end for Sony's PlayStation 3 console? It could be. The Japanese giant has announced that from 30th June, the PS3 will no longer possess the ability to send messages to other platforms such as the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, nor will it be able to receive them. The last-gen platform can still trade messages between PS3 consoles, but its ability to connect with more advanced hardware is being taken away.

In the grand scheme of things, this is going to have minimal impact. The number of people actively using the PS3's online capabilities must surely register in the thousands at this point, and we doubt its messaging system is getting much attention. Still, what feature could be stripped from the console next? The removal of communication between other platforms joins the ranks of various PS3 titles whose multiplayer offerings have been taken offline. Let's hope Trophies aren't on the chopping block.

It was inevitable.
I don't see why they had to do this. It shouldn't be a burden on Sony's servers. They are slow as shit, and Sony should spend their time improving or replacing the servers instead of restricting their devices. It's not going to stop the PS4 OS and internet from lagging like a motherfucker.

Isn't it kind of late to implement Social Distancing?



There's a reason many in the games and software industry has a saying that is "Because Sony". They do very odd things with their systems and infrastructure that can't be explained except with a "Because Sony". Any genuine software company would keep things working going forward. They just can't help but shoot themselves at times.
