WOW!!! the ONLY apple compatible product from SONY comes in the form of a silly promotional app for a cellphone!!! I’d much rather the PSP media manager to be mac compatible. But baby steps I guess. I would own a sony reader by now but they don’t work with macs. I can’t wait to see what other useless apple products sony comes up with!!

Between all this iPhone goofiness and the Gamestop pre-order/Weapon-X Arena code farce, you have taken a good game and really made her stand out on the corner for gaming Johns. If Logan were here he would never let you put those ripped stockings on him. Shame on you corporate thugs.

You would think that Sony would rather promote their Ericsson line of phones instead of the competition. Backwards Sony is backwards.

Nice to SONY taking advantages of the posibilites that the market offers…is this the beginning of the Open platform thing SONY’s CEO was talking about?

As long as that means cash for SONY I’m in, I want them to keep delivering the amazing games they have spoiled us with so far! and what is coming this year!

Will this work for iTouch users too?

Not cool man supporting a rival product to the PSP with this application…. so very not cool.

Even more not cool, way to shaft the customer base of anyone not using AT&T, who doesn’t own an iPhone, and hates Apple.

nice technology

The cross branding is interestingly progressive seeing as many PS3 owners are likely to have a gadget phone BUT this app should have been on multiple phones not just the iPhone in my POV – at the very least on Sony Ericssons for the sake of brand consistancy. Cool though, pity my 5800 doesnt have this app…

Dragun619 said:

Interesting, a Sony site advertising a game on the Iphone. Does this mean there might be a chance to see Ipod/Iphone connectivity to the PS3 to play you know music specifically ACC format? Maybe even a chance for Apple offering Itunes on PS3?

I would like to see that happen, Apple and Sony working together. :D

Awesome! I like the collaboration between apple and sony here!

this is absolutely stupid. these iphone applications are just pointless in most cases

zombie9 said:

iphone??? How about istore for PS3.. I need some jamzz to!!!!!!

KILLZONE79 said:

this sucks, i have a an Ipod Touch

DustyBlue said:

May 11th, 6:53 pm

I love these kind of “secret code” type things! The exclusivity makes this even more interesting…

neo881 said:

May 11th, 8:11 pm

Will there ever be a Iphone/ipod Touch app where we can add friends or see whos on line there are plenty of apps from the other system that does that i would love a psn app :)

FoolKiller79 said:

May 11th, 8:22 pm

I wonder why these kinds of things, as well as many other apps, are iPhone only. My Samsung Eternity could do this, as well as most of the apps in the iPhone App store.

Other than brand recognition, why does the iPhone alone get all of this stuff?

NO, DON’T DO APPLE!

I know it makes sense, to take down Microsoft, but Microsoft has another competitor, THAT YOU’RE ALREADY WORKING WITH!

GOOGLE!

The G1 needs more love anyway. Do that! Don’t go with Apple!

linebeginstoblur said:

May 11th, 8:57 pm

Not that I’m against Apple, per se, but Google is a competitor to both Apple and Microsoft, but they have worked with Sony, especially SCE, in things before. Work with them! At least don’t leave the G1 alone, at least do it for both.

@ jeff
why is the psn network so slow?
im trying to download the infamous demo and well 6 hours in im at %94.
6 HOURS???????????
come on its faster for me to download something on my laptop using dial up than using the ps3 with ADSL2 whats going on???
sony customer service keeps saying my ps3 is blocking the ports, but i can get through their thick skulls thats its in a DMZ so the ports cant be getting blocked thats the whole point of being in a DMZ.

apple and sony make the best stuff around

Michelasso said:

May 12th, 4:18 am

Sony should make a deal with Apple to make the Sony Vaio OSX compatible and having Apple supporting the PS3 firmware. THAT would kill ugly Micro$oft!!!

Jack-Bauer-89 said:

What about us Ipod Touch users? :(

guitain said:

We got the demo a week earlier in Europe, and I must say… It was a blast!

The gore was… *drooooool*

And the combos actually felt coolio!

I was very surprised at how well it worked. One of the more completed movie tie-ins of this generation of consoles!

I have both an Iphone and a PSP, but i have tell you that this is very weird to see the PLAYSTATION BLOG promote anything related to apple. I warranty you one thing, you will never see the word playstation on apples website unless they buy the brand. i just hope we don’t see a DS ad next.

ROLO_ONFIRE said:

@49: yup, I also have an iPod Touch :(

DonnyG said:

May 12th, 7:28 am

Neat idea. The movie was meh. The game is really fun.

improperlyaged said:

May 12th, 8:56 am

ummmmmm how about adding support for features like this to the psp instead of assisting the competition. just a thought. btw i dont own an iphone> im a blackberry guy myself. but i do own a ps3. any cross platform apps for that?

scorpio182 said:

May 12th, 9:41 am

Wow, thats pretty cool!!!

I don’t have an iphone but may one day and things like this make me want to get it more sooner.

“unlock 3D screenshots” – whahhh??

StalkingSilence said:

May 12th, 10:37 am

Why take a picture in the retailer as Jeff responded, you could just take a picture of your computer screen showing the cover art on PS Blog’s Flickr. But that wouldn’t be nearly as fun.

improperlyaged said:

May 12th, 11:36 am

way off topic but is the psp rockband edition official cuz i just saw it on best buy website???????????

improperlyaged said:

May 12th, 12:16 pm

May 12th, 1:43 pm

Yea it would be nice if iTunes had the app available 2 me but as of 4:43 eastern time it was saying no matches available when I type n my search I even type out that long a.. Name still nothing

@ muzzar69

Your PS3 doesn’t block the ports, it uses them. Your router would be blocking the ports. I have no idea what a DMZ is, but if you haven’t configured the ports on your router, head over to portforward.com and bone up on port forwarding for your specific router, then contact Sony again for the necessary TCP & UDP ports you need to open up. Hope that helps!

first mgs, now this! sweet.. apple and sony are definitely ganging up on microsoft..

Happy_Spud said:

May 12th, 9:15 pm

So after watching a crappy movie, I’m going to go out and buy the crappy game based on the movie and download the crappy app based on the game that’s based on the movie?

Happy_Spud: No Thanks
Everyone else on this blog: OMG! Apple and Sony are working together!!!!1 Sweeeeet!! Epic Win!!!!1

No people, it’s activision and sony using the old corporate synergy. Stop kissing up.

muzzar69 said:

May 13th, 5:45 am

thanks.
btw DMZ stands for demiliterized zone, in other words if something is set up in a DMZ all ports on the router are open.
thats why i set the ps3 up in a DMZ instead of one by one opening the required ports and risking to forget one.
and funny enough for some reason my router model isent on portforward.com

macros86 said:

Please make the app for Android devices as well. I only have a iPod touch, and not the iPhone.
