Sony released an update to their PlayStation App, a companion to their PlayStation gaming consoles. With the update, Sony added a new feature called “Live from PlayStation” which gives users the ability to stream live content to their mobile devices. Instead of building in live video streaming directly into the app, Sony opted instead to use providers like Twich.tv and Ustream.
Sony is the latest contender to enter the content streaming game after it announced plans to launch PlayStation Vue, a cloud-based service that includes programming from 75 channels, for owners of its PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 consoles next year. Read More
When Sony released their Lifelog app earlier this month it was limited to only working on Sony smartphones like the Sony Xperia Z2. That has changed today as Sony has released an update to the app enabling it to work on some non-Sony devices.
Sony just announced at Gamescom 2014 that its latest console, the PlayStation 4, has sold 10 million units since it launched last year. That’s 10 million PS4s sold through to consumers, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe CEO Jim Ryan explained on stage at the company’s keynote at Gamescom, not just 10 million units shipped the way hardware sales are sometimes reported.
The Xperia Z2, Sony’s flagship smartphone for this half of 2014, is receiving a small over-the-air update. It is still Android 4.4.2 KitKat, but the build has gone from 17.1.A.2.55 to 17.1.A.2.69 with this OTA update. There are some reports that Sony has shipped this build with some Xperia Z2 handsets and those without it will be getting it now.
