Sony PlayStation App Akan Hadir Sebelum PlayStation 4 Dirilis

Setelah didemokan khusus selama Tokyo Game Show 2013 September lalu, akhirnya kemarin Sony mengkonfirmasikan kapan akan merilis Sony PlayStation App, aplikasi khusus mobile yang akan mendukung selama aktivitas bermain game di PlayStation 4. PlayStation App tersebut akan dirilis 13 November mendatang, atau dua hari sebelum PlayStation 4 hadir di Amerika Utara.

Seperti pernyataan Shuhei Yoshida, konsol next-gen Sony tidak akan egois kali ini, dan akan membina komunikasi yang intim dengan perangkat elektronik lain serta media sosial, termasuk ke smartphone dan tablet Android. Itu bisa dilakukan melalui PlayStation App yang akan dirilis pada 13 November mendatang di Amerika Utara dan di Eropa pada 22 November, beberapa hari sebelum PlayStation 4 dirilis di wilayah tersebut. Aplikasi ini akan menjadi pendamping konsol selama mobile, termasuk pengalaman layar kedua, akses ke fitur sosialnya PSN dan juga notifikasi ajakan bermain online multiplayer, membeli game atau konten PS4, PS3, dan PS Vita, dan bahkan ada fungsi remote control untuk mengendalikan film, musik atau game yang mendukung. Namun yang paling menarik, melalui aplikasi ini kamu bisa melihat permainan game PlaySation 4 yang dilakukan user lain atau sekadar rekamannya saja.

Sony memang hanya mengatakan versi Android saja, namun kami yakin juga akan tersedia untuk iOS nantinya. Aplikasi ini juga akan menggantikan PlayStation Official App mereka sebelumnya yang hanya eksklusif untuk gamer di Eropa. Berikut detail press release mereka:

TOKYO, Oct. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) announced that it will release PlayStation®App, a new application for mobile devices, on November 13, 2013 in North America, and on November 22, 2013 in Europe.  PlayStation®App will be available free of charge. PlayStation®App can be downloaded onto various mobile devices, such as iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android™ based smartphones and tablets, from the App Store and Google Play*1.  Once installed, these devices can be used as second screens in supported PlayStation®4 (PS4™) titles, and users can easily access PSN(SM) features such as Friend Lists and Trophies.  Furthermore, users will be able to exchange messages with members of their Friends List, and browse through news and information on the official PlayStation® website.  PlayStation®App comes with a variety of features that allow users to seamlessly access and enjoy the world of PlayStation®.

The following features are available on PlayStation®App:

Directly access various PSN(SM) features and information

  • Users can access their own profile screen.
  • Users can access/compare their own and friends’ Trophy accomplishments.
  • Exchange messages between PS4 systems, PlayStation®3 (PS3™) systems, PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita) systems, and mobile devices installed with PlayStation®App.
  • Access and filter friend profiles.
  • Notify users about their friends’ shared activities on “What’s New”.
  • Notify PS4 users when they receive any new notifications or game invitations. Users can also display their lists of game items.

Browse the official PlayStation® website and access information

  • Users can access the PlayStation® official website to browse through news, blogs and game information.  The language and content of the website will depend on the country the user’s Sony Entertainment Network account is registered.

PS4 Second Screen Feature

  • Users can install PlayStation®App on to their mobile devices to use as a second screen in supported games.  For example on THE PLAYROOM, a title pre-installed in all PS4 systems that requires PlayStation®Camera, users can draw pictures on their mobile device screens and flick them towards the TV.  The images then appear as a 3D object within the game.

Spectate other PS4 users’ gameplay

  • When users’ friends upload or begin live streaming their gameplay on PS4 systems, the friends’ activities are displayed on “What’s New” of the PlayStation®App screen.  When users tap on this notification, they can boot pre-installed applications, such as browsers, to spectate the uploaded gameplay.  Users can also post comments on gameplay screenshots, footage and live streams.

Purchase game content on PlayStation®Store

  • Users can purchase game content*2 while away from home and download it directly onto their PS4, PS3, and PS Vita*3 systems.

Use a mobile device as a simple remote to control the PS4 system

  • Once installed, users can use their PlayStation®App to control their PS4 system as long as both devices have access to the same Wi-Fi access point.  For example, users can switch their PS4 system to standby mode, startup their PS4 system from standby mode, and use their mobile phone as a keyboard for their PS4 system.
