New PS4 App Turns Your Television Into An Aquarium

Under The Sea~

Who wouldn’t want to bask in the beauty of the Maldives? Perhaps take a dip in its stunning waters and observe the fascinating marine life as it gathers all around us. Truly this is the perfect example of how no amount of art or home entertainment can ever fully compare to the tranquillity of nature.

And on the off-chance that an extortionate vacation is out of the question, you can always bring the water to you with this little feature.

According an article on Eurogamer

TVs are an ugly room decoration when they’re not in use, featureless black slabs our sofas point towards. I’d rather look at a bunch of peaceful fish swimming around. But oh all the moisture those aquariums pump out – I can’t face the mould and mildew.

But wait, what’s this? An aquarium app for my PlayStation 4? You don’t say!

Coming 13th December for €9.99/£7.99 (an extra 30 per cent PS Plus discount will be available) is Aqua TV, which lets you choose your aquarium environment then stuff a load of fish in. And beyond faffing around with camera angles, that’s about it.

Environments range from titchy customisable tanks right up to what looks like coral reef, and can be populated by 25 different creatures including sea turtles, cheeky little seahorses, manta ray and white-tipped reef shark.

There’s no mention of HDR support or 4K, and there are no Trophies – someone actually asked on the PS blog.

In spite of its lack of “trophies” and the fact you actually to fork over in order to submerge your lounge in blue light, the app certainly makes for a refreshing change compared to the same old blank screen. Besides, what better way to celebrate Christmas than by bringing Summer to your TV?
