Why Facebook isn't creating a dedicated app for PlayStation 4


PlayStation 4 owners with a Facebook account will be able to share screenshots and videos to the social networking service, as well as promote livestreaming from Twitch and Ustream, but they won't need to download a dedicated app to do so. Facebook isn't creating an app for PS4, as it did for PS Vita and Xbox 360, for two key reasons.

"In this generation of consoles, all of them have very capable browsers. The PS4's browser ... it's actually pretty pleasant."

That's all we needed to know. :) Good to hear.

The PS4's browser is based on WebKit, the same engine that powers Safari and powered Google Chrome.
Might support HTML5 but not sure about flash.

Hopefully it'll be on the dedicated Twitch app.
