I went to a strip club once. My friend got me into the VIP lounge. None of the regular customers knew what was going on back there.

It's sort of the same thing.

I can see my ps3 friends online when I'm on ps4. I assumed they could see me as well.

It's a bit weird because you can see people online and what they are playing on PS through your Vita. Seems to be something on the PS3 end because you still can't see people playing on Vita through your PS3 as well.

Whoa, I'm going to have to test that. While on my PS4 yesterday, I saw one of my friends playing a PS3 game, and I sent him a message. He responded pretty quick, and then we sent 2 or 3 more messages back and forth after that, so I assumed he could see I was online just fine. I wonder if he was getting messages from me while I was listed as offline on his PS3? Strange...

ps3 players can't see ps4 and vita players when they are online.
Glad DmC shipped a million copies and was a success. Supporting risk-takers and change is how the industry grows.

its probably the same as the Vita... your listed as offline... but no time is given for how long you have been offline for

I take it the PS3 isn't "aware" of the PS4. That will likely come with a firmware update, or maybe just some sort of server side patch.

Just an educated guess.
