BBC iPlayer confirmed for PS4 launch

But will be added later on Xbox One.

The full list of apps that will be included with the PS4 upon its UK launch next week has been revealed.

Testing our early kits, we've confirmed that it has BBC iPlayer, BBC Sport, Demand 5, and the IGN app.

The most notable takeaway from this is that the PS4 launches with BBC iPlayer, while the Xbox One does not. Last week the Beeb confirmed that it's working on an app for Microsoft's about-to-launch console "in the future," but no date has been set.

The full list of apps to launch with Xbox One includes: Xbox Fitness, Xbox Video, Xbox Music, Internet Explorer, Skype, SkyDrive, Upload, and YouTube.
