SCEE revealed earlier today that they’re making an official App and that it will hopefully be available before Christmas in a limited amount of countries, with most other SCEE countries to follow in January.

The new official PlayStation App for iPhone and Android

The version 1.0 that will be available in UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and The Netherlands will feature the following:

  • Check out your PlayStation Network trophies and keep up to date with your friends’ games and online status.
  • Discover all the latest games, news and hardware for your PlayStation 3, PSP and PlayStation 2.
  • Read all the announcements on the European PlayStation.Blog.
  • Share your favourite products or news with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or via e-mail.

Version 1.1 will be published in January if everything goes according to plan and will also make the App available to most SCEE countries. No word yet on availability outside of Europe. “The app will be available to download for iPhone and iPod Touch with OS 4 and above, and most Android compatible handsets with a minimum of OS 1.6″ according to the blog post.

While I’m slightly disappointed that I won’t be able to get this App until it gets updated to 1.1, I’m very happy that SCEE is making an official App. Just look at the following image to take a look at the sweet design:

Comparing trophies in the Official PlayStation App.

I’ve used a third party App that has some of these features allready and I’ve had trouble with long loading times and not all my trophies showing up (old trophies that is). So here’s hoping Sony tests this App so it’s useful for people with a full friendslist and a lot of trophies. Can’t wait to test this App when it releases in Norway.
