Oh joy. More money to throw at the Facebook station 4. Now it can post how John has gone to the 7/11 for his 10th diet coke since he's trying to "watch his weight" as he eats boxes of pizza pockets even faster than before. How ever did we game before knowing that? And why can't we post it faster! Thanks Sony >.>


Someone is jelous that he doesn't have enough of a social life to make use of such a feature.

Seriously though, those who repeatedly keep spewing "Facestation 4" as a criticism are ignorant idiots. The Facebook intergration already exists this gen with the 360 and vaguely with the PS3. It's nothing new and it's certainly not even one of the main new features of the PS4. It's not like you'll be forced to sign up for and use Facebook, so stop crying.

Also, you have a lot of control over your own Facebook page. You can set various notifications on/off. In fact, no one is really stopping you from just keeping your Facebook page set to private with blank details & no friends. Problem solved. Nice try though.

That money is going into maintaining normal business operation(paying bills),not into PS4 war chest.

I do have a social life. An actual one not a make believe facebook one where I pretend the people I associate with actually care about my random posts when I could just talk to them instead. Especially since texting accomplishes the same thing a thousand times faster and better and better yet just calling them if personal meeting isn't an option.Or pretending that the 10k friends I have on Facebook so that I could get that extra dumba** thing in FarmVille or whatever new crappy game it has on there now could actually be qualified as "friends".

And also, when a large majority of its functionality revolves around social media as opposed to, ya know GAMES. Then it's a social media device not a game console.

That seems to be the point the fanboys are missing.

I imagine people here plug their ears and yell, "lalalalalalalalalalalala", when ever they hear the truth.

@Godly_Goof

Except that the large majority of the PS4's functionality is to play games. You proved yourself wrong in your own post. You are a winner and a loser all at once. Although it feels like a large majority of you is the wrong, so you're more loser than winner. Good game! Please try again.
