PlayStation Fans Outraged as Popular Feature Gets Removed from PS5 and PS4


PlayStation gamers are expressing their frustration after learning that a key sharing feature will be permanently removed from PS5 and PS4 consoles next week. The blame for this unexpected change is being placed on one tech billionaire.

Sony Removes Integration with X

Sony has announced that both PS5 and PS4 consoles will no longer have integration with X, which was previously known as Twitter. This means that players will no longer be able to share clips or screenshots from their games on the platform. The tool will be switched off on November 13, and Sony has not provided a reason for this long-running feature being discontinued.

Some speculations suggest that the removal may be due to new rules and pricing introduced earlier this year to access the social network. Gamers are pointing fingers at Elon Musk, who purchased the company in October 2022 for £35 billion / $44 billion, for this "disappointing" change. PlayStation rival Xbox had already removed sharing support for the platform a few months ago.

Blaming Elon Musk

Players are blaming Elon Musk for the removal of the integration, claiming that he wants massive fees from Sony to access API's. Some are concerned that Musk's actions will lead to fewer people using X in the future. Musk has acknowledged the issue on Twitter, stating that he will look into it.

Alerts on Consoles

An alert has started appearing on PS4 and PS5 consoles, warning gamers about the upcoming change. It informs users that integration with X will no longer function, including the ability to view content published on X, post and view content, trophies, and other gameplay-related activities directly from PS5/PS4, or link an X account to do so.
