The new PlayStation Messages app is a niche offering that, unlike the regular PlayStation app, is geared specifically towards messaging.

Available on both iOS and Android platforms, this app allows you to chat with anyone on your PSN network -- nothing more, nothing less. You still need to use the regular PlayStation app in order to be able to browse games and news and perform any functions related to your PlayStation account.

The days of lonely single-player gaming while sitting in a dark basement are long gone -- dark basements may persist, but gaming is now an extremely social activity, and the messaging-centric PlayStation app plays on this factor by allowing PlayStation users to connect using an exclusive messaging app.
