With rumors of the Playstation Phone everywhere, Sony announced today that they would be adding Playstation app to their resume. The app will only be available for Android and iOS devices. The app will give users a number of options. Unfortunately one of those options will not be to play Playstation games on their phone. The app works in a way that is similar to the XBox Live features that are available on LG C900 Unlocked Windows Phone 7.
The app will grant you access to all of the most up to date news on the Playstation platform and will also let you see what your friends are playing and whether or not they are online. Now you do not even have to get up and walk to the Playstation to see which of your friends are online. If you are feeling like you might want to play some online games, simply look up who is online on your phone and see if anything catches your eye.
The app will launch first in Europe, including in France, Germany, and Spain. Sony also said that they were looking to expand the features and countries that will carry the app in the near future. This is to be looked at as a testing period to make sure that everything is running smoothly.
Unlocked iphone 4 iOS devices will have to be running version four or above to use the App, and Android phones have to be using 1.6 or a higher version. They did not announce when this would be coming to the US but if it is successful in its initial releases, you can expect it to make its way here very soon.
Here’s to hoping the next announcement from the company is the Playstation Phone which has had several videos of it released but has received no official confirmation from Sony Ericsson.
