Official Playstation app for windows phone 8

23 Replies 29,581 Views Created 17-06-2013

As the title suggests, Do you think \\\\sony will release an app for other mobile OS's. With the PS4 being social, it would make good marketing sense for them to do this.

And why would it make good marketing sense?  You can count the number of Windows Phone 8 users worldwide on one hand.  In fact same goes for Windows 8 and after that launch XBox One.  MS have really been stuffing up their product launches of late :p

 

Personally I'd expect iOS and Android and question the value of developing for any of the other neche OS's (WP8, BB10, Ubuntu, Firefox, WebOS, etc)

As true as that might be right now, you have to remember that your are talking about windows.....not linux or chromium. iPhones might be used by more people than Windows phones, and windows sales might be down at the moment but there will never be a time when Macs outsell PCs. And it will not be long before the only option on a new PC is windows 8. People are not buying it now because it seems to different, and people are not always open to trying new things when they already know how to use something else. But people will always have to buy new computers so more and more people are going to be exposed to windows 8, and once they figure it out and see how simple it is they will be drawn to the windows phones....It has had a slow start but sales are picking up, more apps are available now and within te next couple of years im pretty sure that windows 8 phones will have a decent chunk of the smart phone market share......so making apps for the windows phone makes perfect marketing sense.

i'm sure they will eventually companies (excepting Microsoft especially at E3) are mindful of their audience. Sony isnt going to exclude fans who own windows devices. at E3 when they announced the app they were facing the competition and weren't about to give them any props. even Microsoft didn't linger on the blu ray addition to the new console. sony most likely wont force their gamers to go buy new tablets or phones because there,s no guarantee the user will buy a sony phone or tablet so no profit either way. then again i could be wrong

I doubt it but here's hoping.  I have a WP8 but won't be getting a Xbox One and I loathe Android and iOS so I'm not looking to switch.  I know Microsoft released their app on iOS and Android and Sony obviously makes PCs so I don't think I would rule it out.  Also, while I found this forum looking for any tips on this, I found that change.org petition.  Internet petitions almost never work but it at least can't hurt.

Hey everyone! I just want to inform you all that a PlayStation App is most likely coming! Sony is designing a Windows Phone along with other companies. For Sony to make a Windows Phone, they are most likely going to make a PlayStation App! Cheers! 😊

I hope they bring out the app. I love my windows phone and with windows 8.1 for windows phone coming out its going be way better. Have understand windows is still a new platform. I believe that apps should be on other devices I hope Sony will do this. They have computers on windows hopefully the new phone coming out if and when comes out I will buy the Sony windows phone I have their laptop on windows 8 and ps3 n ps4 Ps vita want the app on my Samsung ativ s phone. IPhone and android been around a lot longer so of coarse they farther ahead but have past blackberry now. With Sony and other taking the platform and windows 8.1 coming you will see windows go up in cell market. I love my windows has lots going for it just the app market right now.

Be aware Sony MOBILE has zero ties to SCEI...

Sony makes lap tops but Does NOT allow PSN movies in HD to play on their windows lap tops...

 

One part of sony has no links to another...

They remain fully independant...

I use this: http://www.bluestacks.com/

 

It'll play the PlayStation App on a Windows or Mac PC.

 

Not as good as a native app but its a decent workaround.

 

Won't solve the problem for Windows Phone users but there are rumours Windows will soon support Android apps nativly.

 

In any case, it wouldn't be hard for the app to be ported to Windows. The Windows Phone platform is growing quite well, the lack of app support is whats holding it back - and the only way thats going to change is if the developers hurry up and pull their fingers out...
