Never stop playing

It’s all starting to feel rather real, isn’t it? Back at GamesCom, the PlayStation 4 felt like it was an eternity away, but now we’ve reached the point where we’re writing about imminent firmware updates and file sizes. Furthering that is the confirmation that Sony’s previously announced PlayStation App will launch on 13th November in North America and 22nd November in Europe.

The iOS and Android download will function as a gateway to your gaming life via your mobile device, allowing you to receive notifications, invitations, messages, and more when you’re on the move. You'll even be able to peruse PlayStation Store content, purchase it, and tell your PlayStation 4 to download and install it while you’re away.

Even neater, the application will significantly enhance your next generation experience. In addition to allowing you to interact with games such as The Playroom, the software will function as a remote control for your console, allowing you to turn it on and off. You'll even be able to use your device's touchscreen to type out fiddly details such as credit card information.

Finally, you’ll be able to access the PlayStation Blog through the download, and stream videos uploaded to the PlayStation Network via the PS4’s share button. Are you planning to install the application on your tablet or mobile device? Let us know in the comments section below.
