Sony is working on a new way to provide access to PS games on phones.
There is still time before you can get a hands-on PlayStation 5. The gaming console remains out of stock in most parts of the world, including Africa, but Sony is working on a new way to provide access to PS games.
The company has recently put out a job listing for Head Of Mobile for PlayStation Studios. The role and responsibility of the person gives away some information about Sony’s future plans, even though it is yet to officially announce it.
The job listing says that the Head Of Mobile will be responsible for leading every aspect of adapting its console and PC games for mobile devices. This includes “expanding the game development of consoles and PC to mobile and live services.”
But the big focus is “adapting PlayStation’s biggest franchises for mobile.”
This means that you may soon be able to enjoy PlayStation games on your smartphones. This will be an interesting development for the gaming industry as mobile gaming has come of age in the past few years and is giving tough competition to consoles and online platforms such as 918kiss.
Sony won’t be the first company to do so. The biggest example of the same is Activision-Blizzard which is planning to bring several of its popular games to the mobile platform, largely inspired by the success of Call of Duty: Mobile.
These include – Crash Bandicoot: On The Run!, and the upcoming Diablo: Immortal.
Which games will be on?
Sony, on the other hand, will be looking to convert some of its biggest franchises including Uncharted, Gran Turismo, God Of War, The Last Of Us, Ghost Of Tsushima, and others. All these games can be available on both Android and iOS smartphones in the future. It will be interesting to see if mobile gamers welcome the move or not.
Sony’s PlayStation has some presence on mobile. There is a dedicated PlayStation app that can be used to sign in to consoles and access few other functions.
Sony’s subscription-based game streaming service was launched in North Amercia in 2014 but has failed to generate the kind of excitement as rival Microsoft’s Game Pass.
