Sony has released PlayStation App for iPhone, allowing PlayStation 4 users to interact with their game consoles on the go, including the ability to chat with friends, buy games, spectate other users' gameplay and more.
Take your PlayStation® experience with you on your mobile device with the new PlayStation®App! Always be ready to game with features that keep you connected to your gaming friends and the games you love to play. Push games from PlayStation®Store to your PS4(TM) system and be ready to game at home. With the PlayStation®App installed on your mobile device, you can:

- See what your friends are playing, compare trophies, and view your profile or recent activity.
- Chat with your friends; receive notifications, game alerts, and invitations, and then use your mobile device as an on-screen keyboard for your PS4(TM) system.
- Browse PlayStation®Store, pick-up the latest hit games and add-ons, and then push them to your PS4(TM) system so they are ready when you get home.
- Take advantage of the in-app second-screen features, when available, for greater challenges and control.
- Quickly access PlayStation® system guides, manuals, and PlayStation.Blog.

The app also allows users to view and comment on their friends' gameplay videos and pictures, exchange messages between PS4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita game consoles in a similar fashion to iMessage, see friends' status updates, receive notifications of game invitations and the ability to control the PS4 much like Apple's Remote app.

The PlayStation 4 launches Friday, November 15 in North America for $399.

PlayStation App is a free iPhone app available in the App Store. [Direct Link]

Thursday night?? How about Friday morning when you actually have the PS4 in your hands :D

Some of us are going to the midnight launches.

My wife actually agreed to go along with me also. She has never went to a midnight release with me of anything.

I don't mind midnight releases because I get out of work shortly before then.

Nice! And I'm going too! But the point was that after midnight would be Friday morning ;)

Wish my wife will go to midnight releases with me.... Wish I had a wife :D

Maybe the iPad version will come later and they wanted to get the iPhone version out in time for launch.

Interesting to see what if anything M$ does to counter. Everything I've seen and read indicates that Sony has won this generation, but only time will tell.

Microsoft have had a similar app for ages. It's called smartglass.

The day 1 patch is now up on Sony's website - can be installed from USB.

Prob best to grab it now and install locally rather than on Friday.

I have so many games on the PS3 I still want to play, at least 15 (Mass Effect Trilogy, Assassin's Creed III & IV, The Last of Us, Batman games, GTA V). That's just to name a few. I'll be content with the PS3 for several more years. By then, the PS4 will be into version two.
