For real…what’s up with the Iphone app?


13

+ FORMIK on July 5th, 2011 at 11:25 am said:

This is a great idea for a community-oriented game.

I don’t think Sony would publish any iPhone apps, and considering Sony Ericcson phones run Android, I’d expect it to be the OS of choice.

A PSN app would be cool!

+ Chaotic_Renegade on July 5th, 2011 at 11:26 am said:

Great, now if you can get more than the same 50 people to play SOCOM this game would be awesome.

+ thaSLAB on July 5th, 2011 at 1:46 pm said:

Works great on my EVO! Thanks!

For those requesting the official PSN app, it is possible to use the EU app on any phone, all you need is the .apk file. There is a 3rd party app on the Android Market (I won’t mention it by name), that is a lot better than the official app, IMO.

+ ExPresident on July 5th, 2011 at 1:59 pm said:

+ TokyoKid on July 7th, 2011 at 12:18 am said:

This application looks great, but it is not available in the country where my phone is (Japan) (received this message in the online store through a pc). I cannot find the app on the market place and went to the app store online.

What is the big problem with releasing this app in Japan!!!! I WANT IT!!

Oh, regarding the comment of no party system but there is an app released (i.e., Zipper is lazy or not focused on the game), Zipper is working on the party system, the app was made by Sony Entertainment.

They are different companies.
