The PlayStation 4 app that will link the PlayStation Vita to Sony's next-gen console will be added to the handheld with its next firmware update, according to a tweet from Sony Worldwide Studios' president Shuhei Yoshida.
In response to a question on Twitter about the PlayStation app — which was previously announce for iOS and Android — coming to Vita, Yoshida responded that the company's handheld would be getting its own version, and soon.
@OsAndRavensFan1 We'll add "PS4 Link" app to PS Vita with the next update.— Shuhei Yoshida (@yosp) October 5, 2013
Yoshida refers to the app as the "PS4 Link App." We've reached out to Sony to ask if this app will be the same as the app for mobile devices and when users can expect the firmware update.
The PS4 companion app was first revealed during the console's unveiling event in February. During the Tokyo Game Show last month, Sony announced the app would be available for iOS and Android at launch alongside the PS4 in November. The app will allow users to connect to the PS4 using mobile devices and will serve specific functions for titles with second screen support.
