The PlayStation Vita is finally getting some of that good application love – starting today in North America.
A post on the US PlayStation Blog has revealed that starting today, you’ll be able to download three new applications for the Vita;
- Crunchyroll — Watch the latest and best selection of Anime from Japan, including Naruto Shippuden, Attack on Titan, Kill la Kill, Hunter × Hunter and many more, as early as 1 hour after Japanese broadcast.
- NHL GameCenter LIVE — Instantly stream live out-of-market games in HD quality with your NHL GameCenter LIVE subscription.
- Qello — You can now watch your favorite artist’s full-length performances in HD whenever and wherever you want. Qello Concerts streams the largest collection of HD concerts and music documentaries right to your PS Vita, including popular artists such as Coldplay, Linkin Park, Nirvana, Bob Marley, Beyonce, and so much more. With Qello, the concert never ends!
But that’s not all, we’ll also be getting three more apps this Spring (at least two of them available next week);
- Gaiam TV — From energizing yoga and fitness classes to inspiring documentaries and cutting-edge programs, Gaiam TV takes you beyond the boundaries of mainstream media to reveal new perspectives for our changing world.
- Hulu Plus — Hulu Plus offers unlimited instant streaming of current hit shows like Family Guy, The Simpsons, Modern Family and Brooklyn Nine-Nine as well as original series including The Awesomes and The Wrong Mans for $7.99/month with limited advertising. (Available March 25)
- Redbox Instant by Verizon — Redbox Instant by Verizon is offering new subscribers a free month of movies. Subscribers can stream from a library of Hollywood hits on PS Vita and receive four DVD or Blu-ray rental nights every month for new releases at the Redbox kiosk. You can also purchase or rent the latest movies on demand in the digital store. (Available March 25)
Some of these apps likely require subscriptions to their various services, so don’t get your hopes up of getting anything free just yet. Also, some of them might be limited to the US (sorry Canada) as certain services are locked to the US via IP check.
Hopefully we’ll have a little more information when the store updates, so make sure to check the North American PSN post at around 5pm Eastern for further details.
