Sony launched in Japan on Thursday (Nov 17th), a social network entirely dedicated to PlayStation users. Named Play Community, the network can be accessed through the PlayStation Network portal (PSN) and every user registered in PSN is automatically able to join Play Community, using the same PSN ID.
At Play Community the user can import his friend list from PSN, exchange messages with other members and create discussion groups about his favorite games and playing tactics. Each user can, as well, have their own page where they can showcase their list of games or trophies and badges he won during online matches, for example.
There are no plans on whether the USA or other international regions will be having a similar community, but the success of Play Community in Japan will be crucial for Sony to decide whether or not to release a similar network elsewhere.
