PlayStation Vita Gets App Happy in North America
Posted by Edwin Garcia
Anime, hockey, and concerts
Starting now in North America, you'll be able to download three new applications for your PlayStation Vita: Crunchyroll, NHL GameCenter Live, and Qello. Adding to the long list of apps that already includes the likes of Crackle, Facebook, Flickr, NBA Game Time, Netflix, Skype, Tune In Radio, and YouTube, it's safe to say that the handheld is fast becoming a decent little jack-of-all-trades device.
With Crunchyroll, you'll be able watch some of your favourite animes as soon as an hour after Japanese broadcasting, while NHL GameCenter will give hockey enthusiasts the ability to stream live games that are out of market, and therefore not provided by your local television station. If anime or sports aren't your thing, then there's always Qello. This app will provide you with full-length performances in HD by popular artists like Coldplay and Linkin Park.
Along with these three downloads, Sony promises that others are Vita-bound in the near future, such as Gaiam TV, Hulu Plus, and Redbox Instant by Verizon. Will you be using the gorgeous OLED screen to stream these applications? Which apps would you like to see come to the portable console? As always, let us know what you think in the comments below.
