    Sony need to fix this

    Haven't touched my PS3 since I picked up my PS4 on launch day.

    Logged into my PS3 today and was bombarded by a few friends on my friends list asking me where I've been the past couple of weeks.... o_O

    Turns out that when your logged in on the PS4, users on PS3 see you as offline still....

    i don't think so. Its not necessarily an emergent fix because they are 2 separate consoles. I did however noticed that I can see that my PS3 friends are online with their console from my PS4, but I guess the PS3 can get a patch to see the reverse. IDK, to me its not an emergent fix but more of a nice to have and its a fix on the PS3 side.

    Yeah I can see my PS3 friends online. In fact if my friends are playing a game I can look and see if theyre playing on PS4 or PS3. But I've always wondered if my PS3 friends can see what I'm playing on PS4. Theres only two people left on my friend list that haven't upgraded to PS4 yet. lol

    If you are on a PS3 then you cannot see your friends on a PS4. I noticed this day one when I was on my PS3 and thought some of my friends were offline and I was thinking who gets a PS4 on the first day and doesn't play it all day. Then when I opened my PS app I saw them playing their PS4 even though my PS3 showed them as offline.

    I'd like to see them sort this out because I use PSN to keep in regular contact with certain friends..

    Interesting. This wasn't an issue on any Xbox. Can you communicate with your PS3 friends at all on the PS4?

    You can still communicate with each others. You still receives their messages.

    Just PS3 users see PS4 users as offline and most people don't message people that are offline. They message them after they sign in.

    I agree with the OP. I found this out on the US launch. One of my friends was messaging me and he was offline and I sent him a message saying "Are you appearing offline on PS4?", he said "No, why? Am I not showing up?". I would never have known he was online had he not sent me the message first.

    I posted about this the other day, nobody paid any attention to my post. Thanks for making it relevant, obviously someone will reply to your post about this.

    I think Sony should add the ability to leave a Profile Comment showing when you are "Offline". Always thought that was cool on the 360. That way when people see you are offline your profile can say, "On vacation in Fiji till Dec 10" or "Playing on my PS4. Suck it peasants!" etc etc. Haha

    Yeah, I wish Sony would get this fixed too. Usually my PS4 has about 10 extra friends online compared to when I am logged into my PS3 at the same time. PS4 it shows 15 friends online, then switch to PS3 and only shows 5.

    While I admit I don't usually play with too many of my PSN buddies, I still like to have them just for the sake of feeling 'social' and seeing what other people are playing/trophies/etc, but if they don't see any activity under my name they go on a deleting frenzy. I've already lost at least one buddy because they only have a PS3 and likely thought I wasn't playing games/online anymore.

    Because of this I usually log into my PS3 once every few days to keep the 'last seen' time somewhat recent. Unless somebody is hurting for friend space, not sure why so many feel inclined to delete friends after some period of inactivity. I have quite a few buddies that have the '2 or more years ago' under their names. Surprisingly, plenty of them do return, and have seen buddies come back to life after several years of inactivity.

    Same here, I also use the playstation app to communicate with my PS3 owning friends. I just think it would be more convenient for them to see if I was online or not..
