PS4's List Of Day-One Entertainment Applications Revealed

The PlayStation 4 is just over a week away, and Sony has revealed the list of apps that will make it a true entertainment hub for your home.

The list of digital apps that will be available on launch day (November 15) allows users to enjoy the "rich portfolio of services starting on day one." From the hottest movies and TV shows to live sports programming and unique content, the PSN has it all. Said SCEA senior vice president of business development and publisher relations Phil Rosenberg:

"PlayStation is deeply committed to providing the most immersive gaming and entertainment experiences to gamers. The PS4 is the most powerful gaming system ever created, which enables us, along with our partners to add amazing entertainment options to the platform that we know PlayStation fans are going to love."

You joke, but I'm sure there will be quite a few trolls which will point out the lack of a youtube app as a reason (or another reason) to cancel their pre-order.

Don't know why pshome wouldn't be on the PS4, its a big money maker for Sony. I get on psh quit a bit and some people spend 2 to 3 hundred a month for goodies and games.

Don't need any of that but Netflix of course.

I'm starting to worry a little about getting a PS4 in time for an Xmas gift to myself though. Hopefully after launch orders will open up again. There should be a pre-pre-order list.

All I need is my Amazon Instant Video. I just got a new led TV to replace my old one. I needed a bigger TV, but had to get a non-smart one because the smart ones cost too much. I miss Amazon on my TV. Less than two weeks!

I guess you missed out on Wal-mart's web glitch earlier this week. People were buying $1500 55" Samsung tv's for $350 and $1000 50" Toshiba for $250.

Absolutely positive now that I will be using my PS3 for awhile longer. The more I see about the PS4 and its dont have this, can't do that policies is why I'll be sticking to my PS3 while my PS4 gathers dust fot the next couple of months until Sony gets serious with their new machine. Alot like my Wii U did initially. Heck I just got Eminems new album on CD! Wont be able to import and listen to it on my PS4.

I like the idea however I take it these all charge extra, and are not included in the PS+ payment?

Considering they must be expecting the PS+ memberships to double? triple? then I'd have expected that to buy far greater scope of services.

Are you asking if your PS+ subscription automatically gives you a Netflix, Hulu Plus, NBA Game Time and NHL Game Center Live subscription as well. Um...no. Crackle is already free as it is paid for with commercial breaks during the movie you're watch. But you don't have to have a PS+ subscription to access services you already subscribe to like Netflix or Hulu Plus.
