PlayStation Network Facebook Tab - The Tutorial!

[ Edited ]
107 Replies 39,262 Views edited 29-06-2010

PlayStation now has a kick-butt Facebook app allowing you to connect with your facebook friends and compare trophies.

 

This tutorial will walk you through how to sign up to the app, and then add it as a tab to your facebook profile.

 

If you like this tutorial, smack the button below ;)

 

 

Step 1 - Sign-in to Facebook

 

Well, seriously, you shouldn't need help with this!

http://www.facebook.com/

 

 

Step 2 - Go to the application

 

Simply click this link:

http://apps.facebook.com/playstation/

 

You'll be greeted by a page like the one below. This is asks your permission for the PlayStation Network Application to access your profile. If you wish to use the app, you must click allow so that it can get the information it needs to work.

Step 3 - Accept the Terms

 

Next up, you'll need to read and accept the Terms of Use. Read the wordy bits, then click agree at the bottom of this page.

Step 4 - Sign in to PSN

 

You'll now need to sign in to the PlayStation Network in order to link your PSN account with your facebook account. Simply sign in the same way you do on our forums :)

Step 5  - Oooh, get you!

 

Hurrah! You've now activated the PlayStation Network app. You should now see your trophy list, along with a tab which displays the PSN ID's of all your facebook friends.

To connect with a facebook friend, you'll need to navigate to the friends tab, and then hit the 'add a friend' button.

Step 6 - Adding your trophies as a tab on your profile

 

So, you're almost there. Now you can add the app as a tab on your facebook profile, making it easier for your friends to see your trophies.

 

To do this, you'll need to go to Account > Application Settings:

Next, locate the PlayStation Network Application and select 'Edit Settings':

You'll be greeted with a box which looks like the one below. Here, you'll find an area which says 'Tab: Available (Add)'. Click 'Add' and voila! All done.

So now that you're all set up, you can check out your own trophies, add friends according to who you're connected with on Facebook and, of course, brag about your platinum's on all of your mates' walls.

 

Enjoy!

Nope. If you want to test it, open the PlayStation Store, and pick a freebie you've not "bought" yet. complete the transaction and it should ask if you want to post to facebook. Choose yes, then check your timeline to see if it appears ;)

Why can't this functionality be added to the PS3 natively? Honeslty, why get into bed with facebook? BTW, does FB even work on the PS3 Brower anymore?

When I go on the apps page I get,

 

The web page athttp://fbapp.ww.np.community.playstation.net/playstation/?fb_sig_in_iframe=1&fb_sig_iframe_key=6ea9a...might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

This doesn't work for me. I get the TERMS & CONDITIONS in the FB application canvas and then I click ACCEPT. Then it asks me to LOGIN to the PSN account, and then I logon, and then it goes back to the TERMS & CONDITIONS, and it keeps looping that 10 times in a row, then there must be something wrong....

Yup. I'm on a Mac with Safari. Every time I try and log into my PSN account it goes back to the terms and conditions part which I have to agree to. FML.

Safari users having problems?  It's because the PlayStation Network app wants to set cookies which violate Safari's security rules.

 

Open up Safari's Preferences window, go to Security, and change the "Accept cookies" option to "Always".  Then you can add the PlayStation Network app.  You'll probably want to change it back to "Only from sites I visit" afterwards.

Same here at the moment - showing my trophies etc, but no tab for friends.

 

I'll wait until later and check back, as they may be working on something. But still, it's great... I love it!

 

Now if only you'd get some Twitter integration! Until then, can you at least see about getting some kind of API access for Dirk at PS3Heroes.com so that he can improve on his already fantastic work?

It all seems to be a little broken at the moment - I get this after I attempt to log in PSN:

 

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request.
