PS4 Update 8.0 appears to have broken friends lists with Error WS-44369-6

At this point, the system should have enough stability to safely balance a jar of nitro-glycerine during a 10.0 earthquake, after years of updates. The latest of those tweaks is now live, but you might want to hold off on grabbing it in case you happen to be a social gamer.

We’ll update this post, as soon as we hear more.
