Sony already announced its PlayStation App will be headed to iOS and Android some time in November, with the app expected to interact with the PlayStation 4 in a number of ways. If you’re a PlayStation Vita owner or plan to be one, you’ll know Sony is betting big on its handheld device to help unlock the full potential of the PlayStation 4, and the first logical step would be to release a version of its PlayStation App onto the handheld.
According to Shuhei Yoshida, the president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios for Sony Computer Entertainment, the PlayStation Vita will be receiving the PlayStation App, which is currently being dubbed the “PS4 Link,” in its next update. The PS4 Link application is expected to allow the PlayStation Vita to act as a second screen to the PlayStation 4, allowing players to control their console from the handheld, as well as expanding gameplay in a number of ways.
When exactly the PS4 Link app will be released on the PlayStation Vita in addition to the iOS and Android version is still unknown at this time. Considering the PlayStation 4 is releasing on November 15, we hope Sony can have those companion apps available in time for the next-generation console’s release.
