    To me all of the, are absolutely useless… I just hope there not permanently installed on the PS4, like that singing game is on the PS3

    • shogunknight

      Singing game? Which one?

      • Nhiroz

        I think its called Singstar…..

        • shogunknight

          Ah yes, never used that app too

    • DrForbidden

      I hope so too, since one of them work outside the US…

  • Elvick

    Bummer there’s no YouTube app at launch. Netflix and Crunchyroll for me.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Heh…its amazing to see just how far Crunchyroll has come. I remember when they were just getting started and nobody thought it would succeed. Its like watching a relative’s child grow up into a man or something.

    • Bobby Jennings

      Yeah, agreed.

    • Kevadu

      Didn’t Crunchyroll start out hosting fansubs? It was the Japanese copyright holders who pulled them aside and basically said, “look, either we’re going to sue you into oblivion or we’re going to work out a way to do this legitimately…”

      • Zero

        More or less. I was a fansubber back then, lots of groups didn’t appreciate what CR was doing. I think it’s one of the reasons Horrible Subs was made. (Not 100% sure about that.)

  • Zackasaur

    That’s an impressive day-one selection.


    They need to add spotify.

    • drproton

      Sony wants you to subscribe to Music Unlimited instead.

      • Zackasaur

        That has nothing to do with it.

        If Spotify want to release a console app, they will do so. They just haven’t decided to put any business there for the time being. Personally, I think they ought to.

  • DarthBrian

    “Watch the latest and best selection of Anime right from Japan such as Naruto Shippuden, Attack on Titan, Bleach and more up to one-hour after Japanese broadcast!”

    Why’d they include Bleach in this list? Bleach is done.

    • 罪罰

      really dude, who the fuzzles cares.
      you can watch anime on there, that’s the point.

      • DarthBrian

        I was just curious. T_T

        • Seasqwaa

          It’s because shounen. Basically.

  • Carlos Luis Ayala

    so nothing new that’s lame

  • Invisbin

    YuppTV. Lold

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    At least these apps on PlayStation aren’t being tagged behind a paywall.
    cough cough “Microsoft”

  • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

    No NicoNicoDouga app. Bad.

    • DrForbidden

      Isn’t that for Japan only?

      • mirumu

        Anyone can open a NicoNicoDouga account. I have one myself.

        • DrForbidden

          Sweet. thanks.

    • Karl Josef

  • artemisthemp

    Crunchyroll and Netflix, now Youtube is all that remain
