PlayStation App Delayed Until Next Week In Europe

Sony previously announced that the PlayStation app would launch today, 22nd November in Europe. However, they're still making some final tweaks to ensure the experience is butter-smooth for you ahead of the PS4 launch next Friday. The app will now launch next week, in plenty of time for the arrival of PS4 on 29th November. (PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

on iOS, you can get the latest PS app, if you downlaoded the old app before, just delete it, go apple store, then bought items (or whataver it is) go to iphone section and find PlayStation App, download it again, it has the latest update in your language. Though it is only for iphone, not suited for ipads and you can't tilt the app to go horizontally.

As long as it launches before the PS4 release I dont see the problem

I've already got it as well (Android).

Well that sucks...

Off topic question for anyone already using the app:

Is there any way to make it NOT turn your PS4 on as soon as you launch the app???

I love the idea that you can make it wake up from standby, but I don't think it should just happen as soon as the app launches. Why wouldn't that be an option that you have to choose in order to turn it on?

If I just want to check my friends list it makes my PS4 come on, then I have to remember to tell it shut back down or else it is sitting there running for no reason.

i was unaware that it did this... but when at home ive only used the app while the ps4 was on.

theres nothing in the settings about it, but ill take a look at this when i get home
UnHoly_One  +   492d ago
Yeah it wakes the PS4 up immediately if it is in standby.

At least it does with mine.

It sucks because mine is in a closed part of my entertainment center. When I'm playing I open the door for ventilation, of course, but I don't want it to come on some time and then forget to turn it off then it is just closed up in there roasting in its own heat all day.

Doesn't do that with mine. I have to tap on the icon for the connected PS4 in the app for it to turn on. FYI I'm running the iOS version of the app.
UnHoly_One  +   492d ago
Weird. I am on iOS as well.
pyramidshead  +   492d ago
Wait, what the hell have I downloaded then? o.O lol
MasterCornholio  +   492d ago
Im asking myself the same question.
Kayant  +   492d ago

pyramidshead  +   492d ago

I swear it updated it self at some point and there's only one official playstation phone app...weird lol. Maybe it's for like more functionality or something.


Not sure lol, there's only one playstation app on play store for android.

I use to have the old App so i deleted it and i downloaded the new one which is themed like the PS4.
xSHADOWx  +   492d ago
Oh well, deal with it.
They're obviously doing all this for the greater good.
It'll be better than it was going to be if it released now... This is GOOD thing.

Thats at least for Android a non issue as the Android store is not region locked and you can download US apps. I have the Android app installed since it was released in the US.

Apple obviously is a different story since they have their store region locked and the only way around that is DNS to fake you are in the US.
Wizziokid  +   492d ago
You can download it from the US google play store, I went on and it let me update mine last week.

Back on topic, why do people care if it's delayed until next week aka the week the console actually launches? it's kind of pointless until the system is out anyway.

I'm in the UK and I've already got the app can send messages manage invites etc
GryestOfBluSkies  +   492d ago
and im still waiting for the knack game on Android :-(
kenna999  +   492d ago
Im in the uk and I have the updated version
mixelon  +   492d ago
Hmm.. That ad - when you use a phone as a second screen, how do you. Control things? I guess if its not laggy and youre in dual shock wireless range you could use your ds4 and phone/ipad/whatever..?

Intrigued.. I wonder how long range DS4 is.

Does anyone know if this app is compatible with the HTC One?
Goro  +   492d ago
It's compatible with all Android phones, so yes.
mike32UK  +   492d ago
Thank god! Tried downloading the US version as I'm in the UK but it said unsupported device, assuming its just because I'm not in the US though.
GentlemenRUs  +   492d ago
Delayed? I am already running it from GooglePlay, UK here.
bromtown  +   492d ago
