Proceeding their PS3 End of Production a few years back, Sony of Japan announced the end of PlayStation 3's partial message service as of June 30, 2020. ☠

This means message functions between PlayStation 3 (PS3) and other platforms including PlayStation 4 (PS4), PlayStation Messages App, My PlayStation and PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) won't be able to send messages to PS3 nor display alerts between them.

Here's more from the official Press Release, to quote roughly translated: It will not be available as follows:

Cannot be used to:
  • Send messages from PS3 to other platforms.
  • Send messages from other platforms to PS3.
  • Display of game alerts between PS3 on PS4 / PlayStation Messages App.
The message function between PS3 and the message function between platforms other than PS3 can still be used.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but we appreciate your understanding. It will end sequentially from that date. The end timing may change depending on the region.

In summary, those still using their PlayStation 3 entertainment system will no longer be able to message friends who play on PS4 and PS Vita consoles... inevitably Sony will eventually end all PS3 support as the console initially launched in Japan on November 11th, 2006 and will be 14 years old this fall. :confused:
