Some PlayStation Network Features Disabled on PlayStation 4 to Ensure Smooth European Launch

Posted on November 28, 2013 AT 05:26am

Sony has announced that a couple of minor PlayStation Network features will be disabled on the PlayStation 4 in Europe to ensure a smooth launch.

“We want to make sure that your online experience is positive. To help ensure that this happens, we have made the decision to switch off a couple of features for European customers on day one,” said PlayStation Blog manager Fred Dutton. “These features will then be switched back on a few days later, once the intensity of launch day calms down.” The features are:

  • What’s New – Discover and engage with all of your friends’ PS4 related activity
  • Content Information Screen – See friends’ activity and information specific to the title you are looking at

The PlayStation 4 is set to release across Europe at midnight tonight.
