Cant find my friends...

Apr 19, 2014

So, I have a friend and I can't find him even when he told me his name and everything. Do they have to be online or what?

if you are searching using his real name that will NOT work. You will need to have him give you his SEN ID. if he gave you his SEN ID try replaceing any spaces with an _ as it is the only way you can put a space in your SEN ID. For example if his SEN ID is xXBeta_TesterXx the space inbetween the two words is replaced with an underscore (_)

By the look of the title, the question looked way too serious XD

But yeah, you need is PSN ID and not his real name, as others said.

No he does not need to be online for you to search for him on PSN.

What might be confusing  is useing real names on PS4 my psn id is johnkarnes but if you request my real name it will show John Karnes with a space. Also it could be two diffrent names unlike mine. Just make sure you looking for his real PSN ID.

Re: I need help finding my friend

Nov 7, 2015
I have actually found an answer if this is still happening to people. We are in the year 2015, it seems this problem has been persistent since the game came out. I just now got the PS4 as a birthday present from my brother. The first thing I did, was create my profile then but PS+ & with PS+ you are allowed to play online with friends. So I went to go add my friends by their PSN's and I couldn't find any of them, and neither of them could find me.

I then looked around and found all these forums with answers that did not help me. I continued to try, try and try again. When I then saw it had said "download play station app to send friend requests" so I downloaded the app, signed into my account and was FINALLY able to send requests. I do not know about receiving requests yet because all I have done is send them. And that was the only way I could get my friends on my friends list.
