Another fallen comrade bites the dust, as Playstation removes the functionality of Communities in a recent firmware update. PlayStation Communities is a service that allows PlayStation 4 users to create groups about various games and topics. Group members can use the communities to find people with shared interests, post messages, form parties, and recruit for gaming sessions. In March 2020, Sony terminated a PlayStation Communities mobile app that facilitated the social aspects of the service.
The PlayStation 5 does, however, provide a selection of social features that serve some of the same functions as the PlayStation Communities service. These features include group multiplayer launch, game hubs with community content, screen share with multitasking, and the Game Base gathering space. So I guess it’s not all that bad.
