Apple Music is available beyond the Apple ecosystem, thanks to support on some smart TVs and, most notably, Android devices. But, one area of use that Apple has not yet capitalized on is video game consoles. Apple Music is not currently available on Sony's PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5, Microsoft's Xbox One series or the newer Series S or Series X, and it's not available on Nintendo's Switch. However, there have been some grumblings that could be changing. And now even Apple's hinted at the possibility.
As promised, Sony's next-generation PlayStation 5 launches today and with it comes Apple's TV app, bringing the world of Hollywood entertainment and Apple Originals to the gaming console. The app is also available on the PlayStation 4 in the PlayStation Store.
According to Sony itself, Apple's TV app will be launching on both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 on November 12, the same day the company's eagerly-awaited new PlayStation 5 console is scheduled to go on sale.
Earlier this week, Microsoft released a new feature for the beta version of its Xbox app for Android devices. And the headline feature is probably coming to iOS, too.
Apple has ramped up its gaming chops by announcing at its annual developers conference in the summer that iOS 13, iPadOS, tvOS 13 and MacOS Catalina 10.15 software updates bring support for the wireless Xbox and PlayStation game controllers, namely Sony's DualShock 4 controller and Microsoft's Xbox Wireless Controller with Bluetooth. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to pair your Xbox or PlayStation controller and use it to play games on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV and Mac, navigate the user interface on your Apple TV and more.
Sony has finally released its long-awaited iPhone and iPad app which lets gamers use iOS touch controls to navigate the PlayStation 4 interface and play their favorite console titles.
As promised, Sony will release tomorrow a firmware update for its PlayStation 4 console which includes Remote Play functionality for playing PlayStation 4 games on a Mac or Windows PC, the company announced in a blog post this morning.
“With this update, we’re expanding PS4’s Remote Play capabilities to work with Windows PC and Mac,” said Sony. The Remote Play app, which launches tomorrow and will be available for download through the Sony website, lets you connect a DualShock 4 to your Mac via a USB cable as the controller for Remote Play.
Sony today confirmed in a blog post that it's working on a Mac and Windows app with remote play functionality for PlayStation 4 games.
“We’re bringing PS4 Remote Play to Windows PC and Mac,” said the Japanese gaming giant. “This feature won’t be available to test in the beta, but you can look forward to it soon.”
Remote play via Mac and Windows will require the forthcoming PlayStation system software update version 3.50, codenamed “Musashi,” which is now available to those who have signed up for the beta and were selected.
After years of trying to make a dent in the music space with its ill-fated services like Music Unlimited, Sony back in January threw in the towel by announcing a partnership with Spotify, the leading music-streaming service.
Monday, the Japanese company has delivered on that promise with the launch of the new PlayStation Music service with Spotify integration. Available on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 console as well as on Sony's Xperia smartphones and tablets, the service brings 30 million songs to users in 41 markets around the world.
Sony has finally pulled the plug on its unsuccessful music-streaming service, Music Unlimited.
Destined to be shut down on March 29, 2015, it'll be succeeded by a new Sony service called PlayStation Music and based entirely on the Spotify service and its backend.
From the get-go, the new service will have full access to over 30 million songs and 1.5 billion playlists on Spotify.
PlayStation Music will be debuting this Spring in 41 markets and be available on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 consoles, as well as on the Xperia smartphones and tablets. Support for other mobile and desktop devices will be added at a later stage.
The Game Developers Conference is running this week in San Francisco, where the Japanese consumer electronics giant Sony showed off a cool virtual reality headset.
Code-named Project Morpheus, the futuristic looking head-mounted accessory has a built-in five-inch LCD screen with full HD resolution (1,920-by-1,080) with a 90-degree field of view.
Three years in the making, Project Morpheus is packed with sensors like accelerometers and gyroscopes, works with the PlayStation 4 console and even lets players simultaneously use Sony's DualShock 4 and PlayStation Move controllers...
