This is a nice announcement as there are very few official gaming apps available on any marketplace. It is also a pleasant surprise that developers are taking the Android platform more seriously, though those people still stuck on 1.5 firmware will be out of luck. The best part is the app will be free, follow the break for the details.
In version 1.0 you’ll be able to:
- Check out your PlayStation Network trophies and keep up to date with your friends’ games and online status.
- Discover all the latest games, news and hardware for your PlayStation 3, PSP and PlayStation 2.
- Read all the announcements on the European PlayStation.Blog.
- Share your favourite products or news with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or via e-mail.
The first version (1.0) will be available in the following countries: UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and The Netherlands.
Sony is hard at work on the next version that will support most SCEE countries and languages as well as the ability to comment on the Paystation Blog.
We are already working on the next version that will support most SCEE countries and languages, and will also let you comment on PlayStation.Blog.
The app will be available to download for iPhone and iPod Touch with OS 4 and above, and most Android compatible handsets with a minimum of OS 1.6 later this year.
