[MUST SEE] How to sign in to PSN and appear offline.

If your on my friends list chances are ive sent you a message on how to do it.

 

Ok so heres the tutorial:

 

* Sign in, Go to your comment and delete it.

 

* Press X on the green grid button to change the layout of keyboard into the smaller keyboard.

 

* Press X on the spanner, Singla Tap should come up, Press X again.

 

* Now press X on the button ABC2, Then press Triangle, Then press X on the button .@/+1, Then triangle, Then X, Then Triangle,Then X again and Finally press Start then Start.

 

 

I'll write it out in short like a oldschool psx cheat:

Press X on the GREEN GRID BUTTON, Press X on the SPANNER, Press X on SINGLE TAP BUTTON, DPAD DOWN, DPAD RIGHT, X, TRIANGLE, DPAD LEFT, X, TRIANGLE, X, TRIANGLE, X, START, START.

 

 

 

* If done correctly it should show: A . ..

 

* Now sign out then sign back in (You may need Auto Sign in on), Now your appearing offline to everyone else. You wont be able to receieve Message, Game Invites, Chat Invites and well anything involving recieving, But i think you can send messages.

 

You'll notice when you sign in it will just be your PSN ID that shows for a while, then all your friends load but are offline and have no last online time, and to make things back to normal and go back online just delete your comment.

 

and thats how to appear offline, doing this makes me wonder is there any other little tricks like this we dont know about?

hey hey

 

thats very odd.

 

mine loaded my friends list but none had avatars.  you can however; sign into psn and appear offline anyway.  just change your status to "not available" and it will show you as offline to your friends.

This is an interesting find, in that it's interesting that it works.

However, as to why you would do it, and for what you would be 'up to' whilst not showing up as online, it's just a waste of time.

That said, I suppose you could play online without your mates if you want some 'alone time'.

No, it's still meh.

I'll find it useful for PS Home. Some of my friends can be a bit like lonely puppies - harmless but sometimes annoying. This way I can hunt trolls without being constantly badgered.

never really seen the fascination with appearing offline. cant really think of a decent reason for someone to do it, other than being rude 8/. no point in having a friends list if youre gonna ignore them :D. tis a little bit like hiding in a bush and spying on people really :).

lol, totally odd if that works though xD. maybe theres other codes you can put in too (wheres the one that raises your friends list to 1000).

Could be handy , i've been playing a lot of zombies lately , doing the shangri la witsitmaflick in a party of four ,got a regular team of 3 we normally play in , but lately 2 new guys have requested help with this.

 

So that means i need to ditch 1 guy in particular ( he's pant's ) to make up a decent 4 man team.

 

Oop's just realized if you're showing offline you can't form a party!!!!   :Stupid:

 

My bad :smileysad:

I've found another way to appear offline!

Sign out.

But seriously, this is pointless.

This is so odd.... Why, if its real, does it exist in such a round about way. Further more, who found this out....or rather, who leaked this. I find it hard to believe that someone just stumbled over it

i dont see why theres so much negativity in this thread :S sure some people may want to play on their own and not seem rude as to ignore people so they'd just sign out then possibly lose the access to multiplayer in games. so that could be a reason to use this.

But yeah this wont appeal to everyone so i suppose your only stating you opinions :)

my point of the thread was to trigger people into thinking is there anything else like this that we havent come across...
