June 29, 2008 // 8:45 pm - Sony upped the ante and changed the game when they expanded their friends list from 50 to 100 recently. Not content to merely keep up with Microsoft's vaunted Live online service, Sony announced another startling addition to the Playstation Network.

XMB in-game? Ability to play music while playing a game? Halo 3? Nope. Even better. Sony announced that in the latest 2.4 firmware update would launch the new Man's Best Friend, Friend's list or the MBFF initiative. What is the MBFF? Why don't we let Sony spokesperson, Angie Shennandough explain.

"While adding additional support for 50 more friends to interact with on PSN, we thought, what about about Man's Best Friend? My circus show poodle, sparkles, is my friend. Why couldn't we allow pets onto PSN, ya know? What about my REAL best friend? The one that I feed, take for walks and play with everyday? Well, we're changing all of that. From now on, you'll have an additional 50 slots to add pets!"

We responded rather curiously to this new "friend's list" and wondered, why pets?

"Well, pets are our friends and we want to know what they're doing at all times, just like our PSN friends, right?" Shennandough explained.

Incredulously she was asked by the press, "Pet's don't play video games..."

Without missing a beat she responded, "Well you can't invite your friends to play with you online anyway, so it really doesn't even matter, but Sparkles was very happy today when I told her that I added her to my list."
