Forums are a good place to go if you have topics that you want to discuss. It is also a good place for companies to monitor what is being said about their products, and also to identify bugs, issues, complaints, and user feedback. However, for PlayStation owners, it looks like you’ll have to find somewhere else.
This is because Sony has announced that starting on the 27th of February, they will be shutting down its PlayStation forums. It is a rather abrupt announcement as it was made with about two weeks left towards the end of the month. Sony also did not mention as to why they are shutting down its forums, except to redirect gamers towards Sony’s other pages like its social media platforms.
According to the post made by a PlayStation community manager, “Beginning 27th February, the PlayStation.com forums will no longer be available. We invite you to continue the conversation via PlayStation.Blog, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. For product support, please visit the support site, Playstation.com/help/.”
It will be a pity to see the forums go, especially since like we said, it does provide a one-stop shop for users to highlight issues, bugs, provide feedback, and more importantly, it creates a environment where gamers can discuss all things PlayStation-related. We’re not sure if posting on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram will have the same effect, but at the end of the month, that’s pretty much what gamers will have to work with.
