This week marks the first and last time I have ever heard of PlayStation Communities, a service that apparently let users hang out in custom forums/group chats on the PS4 and talk about specific stuff.

When passing the news around here, only a couple of colleagues had even been aware of its existence, let alone used it. But hey, maybe you played a game with a very specific community or communications need, and you did fire it up from time to time.

If that’s the that case, sorry, from April it will no longer be supported on the PS4. You’ll have to find some other way of communicating online. Presumably one of the ways the rest of us have been getting by with all this time?

(More seriously, if you did use this service a lot, tell us about it in the comments, I’d genuinely love to hear what made it such a good fit for a particular user/game/community).

It’s been a fantastic way for me to be discovered by bots promising nudes that I was always sure I never wanted.
