The lucky folks in 'Andy's' European Market should be getting the PlayStation App very soon, if they haven't already. If you are one of our members in France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain or the UK, give us your thoughts of it in the forums. We shared with you previously about the PlayStation app's features, but here's a quick rundown of what they touted for the European release version:
- Check out your PlayStation Network trophies and keep up to date with your friends’ games and online status.
- Share your favourite products or news with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or via e-mail.
- Discover all the latest games, news and hardware for your PlayStation 3, PSP and PlayStation 2.
- Read all the announcements on the European PlayStation.Blog.
This is pretty slick, as it seems to herald even more Android integration with our other entertainment devices. That can probably only be a good thing for consumers in the long run.
[Update] Some enterprising folks over at Playstationlifestyle.net have posted the .apk file for the PlayStation App, so even users in other regions can try it out! Some of it's features are EU specific, like the European PlayStation Blog, and you need to install it using the standard .apk file method, but at least we can check it out. Here are some instructions,Click here for the PlayStation App .apk file.Move the file to your phone’s SD card and install. Don’t forget to allow apps to be installed from non-market sources by going into Settings > Applications > then check the box that allows apps to be installed from Unknown Sources.
