PlayStation Vue Coming to the iPad in "Near Future"

Sony on Wednesday rolled out its new streaming television platform called "PlayStation Vue" to Chicago, New York City, and Philadelphia. The service allows PlayStation 3 and 4 owners to stream live and on-demand television, movies and sports without a cable or satellite subscription. PlayStation owners can also save content for up to 28 days using the built-in cloud based DVR.

The service is available in three tiers starting at $49.99. The basic Access plan includes more than 50 channels including broadcast and basic cable networks such as CBS, Fox, CNN and Comedy Central. The $60 Core plans features all the same channels as the Access tier but includes more local sports. And finally, the Elite Vueing experience gives you all of the above plus more basic cable channels for $70 a month.

UPDATE: Available channels depend on your region. You can see some of the channels offered here.

PlayStation 4 DualShock Support Added to Controllers for All iOS Tweak

As promised, developer Ori Kadosh has added DualShock 4 support to the jailbreak tweak Controllers for All. This means iOS owners can now use a PlayStation 3 or 4 controller to play games on any device running iOS 7.

Controllers For All

In case you missed it the first time around, Controllers for All single-handedly made jailbreaking relevant again by giving iOS users an affordable alternative to the expensive third-party iOS controllers on the market. The tweak allows users to save money by adding PlayStation DualShock support to iOS 7 devices. Controllers for All originally only supported PS3 controllers, but Kadosh is slowly making it compatible with other consoles. Hoepfully the Xbox 360 and Xbox One are next in line.

Find a PlayStation 4 With This iPad / iPhone App

The PlayStation 4 is already one of the most sought after items this year, and analysts are predicting that it may be sold out until 2014. However, some online shoppers are using a new iOS app to help them locate and buy the next-generation console before Christmas. The free app allows users to track out of stock products so they can be alerted when they are back in stock. The service is easy to use, and it has already helped hundreds of shoppers purchase both the PS4 and Xbox One, plus other hard to find products, this year.

PlayStation 4 Stock Tracker

iPad and iPhone users can download the app for free from the Apple App Store, and Android users or people without smartphones can use the online service. You can get started by taking a few seconds to register for a free account, then navigate to the product page you want to follow, and just tap or click the "follow" button to start tracking that item. You can then choose to have send you a mobile alert, email or desktop alarm when that product becomes available for pre-order or is back in stock.
