Coupled with the announcement that it is now available for Roku, PlayStation Vue will be made available on Android devices beginning next week. If you are sitting there asking yourself, “What on Earth is PlayStation Vue?,” think of it as a Netflix-like cable TV competitor. With it, users get access to on-demand content, livestreaming TV shows (55+ channels on the basic package), as well as a feature called My Shows, which is a cloud-based DVR. To sum it up, it’s yet another option for those looking to ditch their dinosaur cable TV provider, angled directly at PlayStation console owners.
With PlayStation Vue available for Android, subscribers can watch all of their content directly from their smartphone or tablet, so long as it is running Android 4.4 or newer. Additionally, the app will support Chromecast or any Google Cast-supported device, such as an Android TV box (NVIDIA SHIELD) or HDTV with Google Cast built-in. (more…)
For the lover of all things Sony and PlayStation, a title which recently hit Google Play will certainly interest you, called Entwined Challenge. Based on a game which is available for the PlayStation 4, Entwined tells the tale of a bird and fish, who work together to become an even more gorgeous creature. (more…)
The next generation of gaming consoles is upon us, and Sony wants to make sure that Android users will be able to connect with the shiny new PlayStation 4 in ways that they had not been able to before. The official PlayStation app has been updated with lots of connectivity features for your Android device to control your new console. Unfortunately, all the changelog on Google Play has to offer is “the app has been updated,” but Sony has told us before what it will do. (more…)
Sony announced this morning that they are bringing a PS4 companion application to both iOS and Android platforms on November 13. The app will actually be capable of performing a ton of tasks, such as directly accessing PlayStation Network information and features, performing “second screen” features for your console, allow players to spectate on other players’ gameplay (that’s cool), and will also allow you to use your phone as a PS4 remote control.

If you are a fan of tech as a general subject, then today is a day to pay attention. There may not be many Android-related bits, but as most of you know, there will be plenty from its number one competitor. Today kicks off WWDC, Apple’s developer conference, where they have already essentially confirmed that they will unveil their next version of iOS. But outside of Apple, E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) starts this morning with Microsoft on stage to discuss all things XBOX One. And actually, the event runs simultaneously with Apple’s WWDC keynote, so juggling news out of both should be entertaining to say the least. Finally, later this evening, Sony will finish up day 1 at E3 to talk PlayStation 4. (more…)
The DualShock controller design is one of the most iconic pieces of hardware in video game history. Playstation fans will be excited to hear the news that Sony has found a way for their Xperia mobile devices to work natively with their Playstation 3 DualShock 3 controllers over Bluetooth. (more…)
Sony Computer Entertainment recently acquired the cloud gaming company Gaikai. One can only assume that they are going to use this new company to move towards streaming games on their online system and their Playstation Store. Since their acquisition, the company has been “hard at work” with Sony and their new website is teasing at just that. Sony exclusives like Little Big Planet, Metal Gear Solid and God of War are teased as long as other big name titles like Mass Effect.
Where we really hope this marriage of gaming is going is towards our mobile devices. Sony seems interested in certifying more and more Android devices under the Playstation Certification so we hope that these games will soon be streamed to our phones.
Would you be interested in streaming Mass Effect to your phone?
