Despite selling over 6 million PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide, Sony is still supporting the PlayStation 3 with new software and video games.

Today, owners of the ageing console in the US will be able to download a new HBO GO app to stream shows such as True Detective, Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones. It’s been a long time coming – HBO GO launched on the Xbox 360 in March 2012 – but a welcome addition nonetheless. Many use the PlayStation 3 as an entertainment hub for streaming services such as Netflix, so the addition of HBO GO will only add to its usefulness in the living room.

If you’re one of the 6 million that’s invested in a PlayStation 4, you’ll have to wait a little longer. Sony said it’s “working diligently” with HBO to launch a HBO GO app on the next-gen system, but stopped short of giving any firm release dates. If it’s any consolation, the Xbox One doesn’t have a HBO GO app either.
