Yeah, you get a little 'gamercard' now.
And you can see your friends online, what they're playing, and the last time they logged in.

Nice.

I wonder if there's any chance Cheapy can get this simple set-up into the profile, like the gamertag thing we have.

You read it. You can't unread it.

That's very cool. I was actually just thinking earlier today how bare-bones the PSN user profile is compared to XBL, and I honestly never expected Sony to make friends lists viewable on the Web. And now here this is. I'm impressed.

Of course, I can't get it to work. I get a temp image that says something like "please wait while we update your ID" and then it vanishes. All the language over the related pages suggests I still need to sign in, which I've definitely done. :wall:

The card doesn't show up at all in FF, but switching to IE made it work just fine.

Yeah I did that, then I turned on my PS3 and it works fine. It wouldn't show my card after I linked the profiles, and kept telling me to link them even though I already did.

My PID is still inexplicably a 1x1 jpg, but at least I got the friends list working. Cool to see them moving in this direction. I wonder what other stuff they'll reveal during E3.

Give it a few minutes, and go back into PID page and hit 'update PID' or something, it then shows up.

I can see these cards eventually having trophies and levels.

If you want the simple code for your PSN card to add to your signature here, just replace CrashSpyro with your PSN name after linking your accounts:

[url=http://www.us.playstation.com/PSN/Users/CrashSpyro][IMG]http://pid.us.playstation.com//user/CrashSpyro.jpg[/IMG][/url]


I can't get my friends list to come up at all, so I'm not sure how that's supposed to work.

Edit: It's working for me now.

You should be. Now I'll have to see these travesties around the forums that serve less purpose than a XBL gamercard.

I'll probably end up adding it next to my XBL card in the sig.

Right now, it's a little disappointing.

and this word. But nothing shows up.

Edit: Fixed. All I had to do was switch browsers, sign in and out several times, and enter my PSN login information 5 separate times. Of course!

I'm having trouble, but it now says updating. Thankfully I found something, but it says updating.

I found the problem. I'm going to blog it.

I think the important thing was the time it took, not your actions.

I just pasted the HTML they provided into my Sig here on CAG. Should that do it?

(I guess not)

Just remove the url from the html of PID and that will work.

I ended up blogging the story and linked to this thread (thanked ReRo).
