Sony unveils PlayLink, a new way to play games with friends on your phone and PS4


Sony wrapped up the bulk of its E3 conference last night and while most of the announcements there do not pertain to us here at AP (though I did pay attention to several of the announcements out of personal interest), there was one that stood out. It’s called PlayLink for PS4, and it’s supposed to represent a new way to play games with friends. 

The gist is that as long as you have a phone/tablet with the app, a PlayStation 4, and a TV, you’re ready to go. These new titles are designed to take full advantage of a touchscreen and mobile cameras for some, apparently, wacky adventures. All of these new games are meant to be played in groups — some can have up to eight players.

There are a few games already in the works, but the launch title is a quiz called That’s You!, which will be free to all PlayStation Plus members (available on July 4). From the looks of the video above, some could consider it to be a fun party game. Others are planned and they include: Hidden Agenda (mystery), Knowledge Is Power (trivia), Frantics (arcade), and SingStar Celebration (singing).

The gaming world is in a bit of a buzz at the moment, but at least we have Sony to take care of our smartphone/console party game needs. While not confirmed, I imagine that each of these titles will cost you in some form or another — that’s not at all surprising. PlayLink marks another attempt to bring more people into the gaming fold, which I can respect.
