As a Playstation Certified tablet, the multimedia updates for the premier Sony tablet could not have come soon enough. Sony announced Wednesday that Tablet S owners can finally access the Playstation Store and Sony Music Unlimited services directly.
The initial 10 selection of games from the Playstation Store is mostly from the PSOne era redone for tablet usability. Classics such as Wild Arms, Rally Cross and Jet Moto 2 are already available for $5.99 each. More releases are expected to come with time, although they have yet to be announced.
The Music Unlimited streaming service comes in the form of an app and is not limited to just Tablet S users as it is available for other Android-based tablets as well. The cloud-based service allows users to more easily listen, organize and find music through the internet. Additional options are available if the user decides to opt-in for a monthly premium plan.
Both the gaming and music services are now available to Tablet S owners in the U.S., Canada and at least seven additional countries. Users should be able to see a notification on their Sony tablets for the PS Store download, while the Music Unlimited app should now be on the Android Market for tablets.
