PlayStation Official App 1.3 Update

Featured img

A new update of the PlayStation Official App is now available. With this new version (1.3), you will be able to get all the latest PS Vita News, Games, Peripherals info directly from your smartphone.

From the home menu, you’ll get a prompt to discover PS Vita via an augmented reality feature. All you have to do is find a PS Vita logo, zap it and this will trigger the interactive animation.

Hope you enjoy the new version and I’ll be back on the blog pretty soon to announce the next big release (version 2.0) which will be the biggest update to the app so far with new features.

Note: PlayStation Official App is compatible with iPhone 3GS, 4 and 4S with minimum of iOS 4 and for Android devices with OS 2.1 and above. PlayStation Official App doesn’t support Android devices with small screens e.g. Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini.

Any news on an iPad app guys? Would be greatly appreciated. Don’t like having to stretch it to full screen, looks nasty then.

hopefully this fixes the trophy list, half my games dont show up or friends dont show up as owning them games yet i know they do

Windows Phone please!

Nice :) I use the app now ;)

When will you release it in the Saudi Arabian Android Market?

Certainly has improved, looking forward to 2.0. Please make a secure auto auth for the app, hate when it forgets your login. Eg. add an pin feature, when accessing the app.

We are still trying to find a solution to the login issue. Until then you will need to re-enter your login details every 24 hours.


have you fixed the problem where it freezes and locks your phone when you try to read comments?

keeps happening to me

Emmanuel Orssaud 04 March, 2012 @ 17:37

Hi LAClennell, we’ll look into this bug. What phone are you using?


HD Version for Galaxy Nexus please.


& please make it worldwide.


does it work for the galaxy y?


Nice , but the new format for the store update post , not working in the app .

loadstone007 02 March, 2012 @ 18:16

What about opening up this app for worldwide users? It’s really annoying how you discriminate in every service you offer!


Hi, I use this app on Android and it’s great but it would be even better if there was a version available for PS Vita!

Also if you speak to whoever is making the decisions, more apps for the Vita would be amazing and much appreciated all round.

Hi SuperJag86, we are working on a PS Vita version of the PlayStation App.

Any Windows Phone App version? plzzzzz

Emmanuel Orssaud 04 March, 2012 @ 17:41

sorry at present we don’t have any plan to release a Windows Phone version of the app.

+1 to this being added to vita


Great. But app still crashes when selecting the Twitter option when adding a widget on my Galaxy Nexus.

Emmanuel Orssaud 04 March, 2012 @ 17:42

Thanks for letting me know LeChuckie, we’ll look into this bug.


vita app please & netflix,lovefilm,youtube apps aswell & flash support for the vita browser.loving the vita!

What would actually be the advantage of having a PS Vita version? I can read the blog just fine with the browser and the friends, trophy and twitter apps pretty much take care of the rest? (posting) this from the Vita btw)

jonny_hart_digit 02 March, 2012 @ 19:09

let my post be the judge of this.

Any change it will launch in the EU AppStore? For some reason its no longer in the EU AppStore.


This app badly needs the ability to save the log in details. It’s beyond annoying that i have to type in my long email adress and password every time i want to take a look at my friends list. Should be your number one priority.

And a native iPad app would be greatly appreciated.

Why can’t it be available to other countries ? I’d like it, but in AppStore Brasil it is not there…

European_Gamer 02 March, 2012 @ 20:33

What about an app for the Vita?

prycestation3 02 March, 2012 @ 20:35

great update much needed Thanks.



I do like this app, having it on my Android phone and tablet. What I would like is the ability to make store purchases, redeem codes, etc. These can be queued for downloading via Plus. Just think of the impulse purchases that can be made ;-)


Not compatible with Huawei U8650? Why? 3,5 Screen and it should be fast enough? Android 2.3.5

acousticguy92 02 March, 2012 @ 21:27

Certainly hope those big 2.0 features include saving login details and PSN messaging.

bandoors_ksa 02 March, 2012 @ 21:29

Not available in my country :(

No BlackBerry App then???

Please add Vita trophies there to.

Can’t wait for update 2.0 :D, before summer?Any specific month you can give?


Nice update. looking forward to 2.0

Emmanuel Orssaud 04 March, 2012 @ 17:43

Thanks! :)

In general I really like this app but I’m not pleased with this update. The file size has doubled just to add support for a temporary add campaign and there’s still no tablet support or even saved loving details. Oh and it seems you can successfully post a comment to this boogie from the app.

Emmanuel Orssaud 04 March, 2012 @ 17:44

Sometimes it can take a few minutes for your comment to appear on the blog when posted from the app.

Pardon the auto-corrected typing errors!

*login details

Windows Phone 7? Heard of it yet? their menus slide like Vita’s and everything…

Dungeonscaper 03 March, 2012 @ 01:49

The Android version is slow and buggy with showing pictures and general navigation.

Dark-Twisted 03 March, 2012 @ 02:12

I’m guttered. I liked this app but I can’t use it now. After moving to SD there’s still about 7 or 8MB on my phone. I don’t have a lot of memory and can’t spare that, it was a quarter of the size before hand.

Dark-Twisted 03 March, 2012 @ 02:17

I prefer my browser anyway. Doesn’t log me out every time and actually posts my comments.


Please release it in Saudi Arabia (Android Market)

can you enable it to allow me to add friends to my psn?

Works well on ios but android version is way too slow

I have said this several time and I repeat: we need a common PSN Store for the regions in Europe without one (You know Sony, Europe is 27 countries not 16), we are perfectly OK with the English language, we don’t need a localized version, and you need to let us all use the PSN application. And maybe you should include remote play function to for Sony mobiles. I would love to have remote play on my Xperia Play

The app is getting a lot better with every update hope 2.0 will have messaging.


Official forum support would be awesome maybe add a link on apps main menu.


Why is this App doesnt supported in Ukraine?I cant even find it at Android Market.

Any plans for a Windows Phone app?

residentSteve 03 March, 2012 @ 21:41

Call me stupid but how does the vita logo thing on the app work do you use the vita or phone camera to see it?


can we get this app in the Canada ;)
