Sending and receiving game invitations and items


You can send game invitations and in-game items from some games to Friends or other players. The things you can send and the way you send them vary depending on the game.


A notification message appears in the upper left corner of the screen when you receive an invitation or item. To view what you received, select (Notifications) from the function screen, and then select [Invitations] or [Game Alerts].

  • Notifications about invitations and items are deleted from (Notifications) after 30 days.
  • To open an invitation that you've just received, press the PS button when the notification message appears.
  • Some games require a PlayStation®Plus subscription.
  • To report inappropriate invitations or messages, press the OPTIONS button at the details screen for the invitation or message, and then select [Report].
