PlayStation Network friends list's massive boost available now

If you've been brushing up against the PlayStation 3's 100 friend limit for awhile, Sony has good news for you: You can add up to 2,000 friends to your PlayStation Network account right now, almost a week ahead of the PS4's launch. However, until November 15th you can only view your expanded social circle via the PS Vita or with the as-of-yet unreleased smartphone app -- the PS3 will sort out an active 100 to display. Sony has been giving so much early access to seemingly anything PS4-related, we're kind of wondering if there will be any surprises left once we finally open the box. You know, aside from that one.
