Sony pulled out a cruel move for those who use the Facebook app on PlayStation Vita (or PlayStation TV, although that is weird). On January 20, a new system software update comes for these two platforms: the 3.57 firmware drops (and for the PS3, it’s 4.78), which pulls the rug from under our legs.
So if you use Facebook on PS3/PSV/PSTV, you can say goodbye for the Facebook app as the support ends on all three platforms! We can understand dropping the support for the PS3, as it is a prev-gen console, but what’s their problem with the PS Vita? Okay, you can access the site from the browser, but Sony shouldn’t treat this handheld – which is barely four years old! – like this regarding a social network that probably a lot of PS Vita users use!
We can’t say anything that defends Sony about this subject: this was announced on the Japanese PlayStation site. Last January, they dropped the YouTube app as well. Can’t you show it a little more publicly that you don’t care about the PS Vita, Sony…? This is pathetic.
