Two weeks ago Shuhei Yoshida took to the stage at the Tokyo Game Show to show-off the new PlayStation App that will be launching alongside the PS4 this November.
Yoshida states: “It’s an application that anyone can download for free on iOS and Android devices,” and explains “You can connect to your PlayStation profile, and send messages – even voice messages – to friends between your smartphone and PS4.”
“the new app allows you to take the PlayStation experience with you when you’re away from your console. You can stay in touch with, friends, compare trophies, view friends’ activity (including recorded or live-streamed gameplay on PS4) and access all the latest PlayStation Blog news.” Reveals the PlayStation Blog post.
You can even send out an invitation for a multiplayer game or purchase PS4 games through the PlayStation Store, which will start downloading immediately.
“There are many big publishers creating their own apps for their games, like Watch_Dogs or Battlefield, and that’s great,” he added.
“But smaller developers can use PlayStation App to connect to PS4 and load an application, like drawing software for example, so that you don’t have to download and install a specific app on your smartphone. It’s open to all PS4 developers to use.”
