PS4 was thought to be bringing a new app to mobile devices, which would allow gamers to take their gaming experiences beyond their living rooms, but now it looks like that idea will not be under the PlayStation banner.
According to a report from GamingBolt yesterday, Sony Computer Entertainment of America CEO and President Jack Tretton said that he doesn't believe people will see PlayStation branded apps on other Sony devices.
"I don’t think you’ll see PlayStation branded stuff on other Sony devices –you will see and you currently see the Sony Entertainment Network.
“Whether it’s your smart phone or your tablet or your TV you can take advantage of Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited… most of the deals that we’re doing with app providers we’re making available across the Sony Entertainment Network.
"So it’s not just Hulu Plus for your PlayStation 3. It’s Hulu Plus for your Sony device, if you’re a member of the Sony Entertainment Network," Tretton said.
Tretton then talked about how if an app goes beyond gaming, then it should be under the entertainment brand of Sony.
"I think you’re already seeing a proliferation like that, but it’ll be done under the Sony banner as opposed to the PlayStation brand. Because when we think PlayStation we think gaming.
"So if it’s somewhere that gaming lives, the PlayStation brand will probably come with it. If it’s pure entertainment then that’s really more of the Sony brand," Tretton said.
