A new app from Sony is now available to interact with SingStar on the PS3, and tomorrow’s PS4 release of the franchise. The app acts as a virtual microphone for game, so you can use your phone’s mic to sing into rather than buying one for the game.
Another practice that is starting to become common place is the development of companion apps for games. There are already plenty of them available for a variety of games from World of Warcraft to the Ghost Recon Network app. Now the Playstation 3 game Starhawk has its own companion application called Starhawk Uplink.
Our friends over at AndroidNZ went through and did a nice review of the Samsung Galaxy S III phone. When doing their reviews they also like to test out controllers, mostly because the crew over there happen to play a lot of Android games like we do. Good news is a few controllers work right out of the box.
More and more console games are starting to make their way to mobile for both iOS and Android. Another title has been announced that will be making the jump from the Playstation 3 over to iOS and Android is Joe Danger from Hello Games.
Sony is really doing their job well stirring up rumors, first with the Android Playstation phone and now ‘insider information’ from someone close to the project has said that the Playstation 3 could be getting GoogleTV software. While it wouldn’t be hard to rig up your PS3 in some fashion to play on a GoogleTV, actual compatibility is always better.
