PlayStation Vita Gets Suite Of Video Apps

PlayStation Vita isn’t exactly known for its multimedia apps or streaming capacities – it’s more of an on-the-go gaming system. Sony, however, takes a different view: the Vita is a portable multimedia console that should be utilized as effectively as possible. It’s showing faith in this assessment by adding a suite of video apps, including NHL GameCenter Live, CrunchyRoll, Qello, Hulu Plus, and Redbox Instant. The latter two services will be available sometime later this spring, and as such signals Sony’s intent to make a vested investment in the mobile streaming community. As cordcutters continue to increase their potential viewing options, major brands appear to be keeping pace, trying to rope younger generations of content viewers onto different, non-traditional hardware platforms. It’s a trend to keep a close eye on.
