Sony PlayStation iOS App Now Available for Download

The Sony PS4 launches this week and prior to the new console’s release, the company has released their Sony PlayStation iOS app for download. The app requires a Sony Entertainment Network account and the PS4 to use all of the features.

Below is what the app will enable you to do via its iTunes description page:

With the PlayStation®App installed on your mobile device, you can:

  • See what your friends are playing, compare trophies, and view your profile or recent activity.
  • Chat with your friends; receive notifications, game alerts, and invitations, and then use your mobile device as an on-screen keyboard for your PS4™ system.
  • Browse PlayStation®Store, pick-up the latest hit games and add-ons, and then push them to your PS4™ system so they are ready when you get home.
  • Take advantage of the in-app second-screen features, when available, for greater challenges and control.
  • Quickly access PlayStation® system guides, manuals, and PlayStation.Blog.

Sony first teased this app, which can act as a second screen, during its PS4 announcement back in February. The company later confirmed the app would be released in November, and here it is as promised.

    *399$

  • Derrick Rockwell

    No, his source says $599.99, just a bad source. Retail price at launch will be $399

  • Erik Kappel

    Yea the price is 399$, the link you’re sending to on Amazon is to someone who is profiteering on launch stock.

    Am I buying one? …preordered since June! 😀

  • I think that’s Gary’s own affiliate link. 😉

  • Erik Kappel

    Same here!

  • Erik Kappel

    Hehe 😛 Nah I think it’s just because it’s the only option that was available on Amazon. My guess is Gary hasn’t been following the next gen news very closely… He’s an iOS/Android aficionado after all, so I’m guessing not a huge console gamer?

    Woot! Waiting until shipment arrives! 😀
