Sony has announced the imminent release of its first official PlayStation app for the iOS and Android platforms. And no, this is not the mobile gaming platform Sony is reportedly working on. Some features of the PlayStation app include: Checking out your PlayStation Network trophies and keeping up to date with your friends’ games and online status. Discovering the latest games, news and hardware for your PlayStation 3, PSP and PlayStation 2. Announcements on the European PlayStation.Blog. And sharing your favorite products or news on Facebook, Twitter or through e-mail.
Sony says that the free PlayStation app will launch “very soon” for the iPhone, iPod touch and Android devices running version 1.6 or later. The app will first be available in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands, with other markets to follow.
