This bit of news was announced by Sony at the Tokyo Game Show. The app is called “Live from PlayStation” and will arrive for the PlayStation Vita in a future software update. Great news for anyone who wants to watch live streams from a PlayStation 4 on their handheld console. I’m guessing there are at least a few of you.
Streams from a local PlayStation 4 can be viewed, but also the Live from PlayStation app will allow Vita owners to view gameplay streams from other PS4 consoles that are streaming gameplay. So you aren’t limited to just your own PS4. It’s like Twitch, but is only for the PlayStation platform. Sony also let us know that the PS Vita will also get the ability to customize the homescreen with software update 3.3.0.
