As part of their E3 pre-show Sony have announced PlayLink – “a new way to play” – which allows players to interact with specially designed PS4 games via smartphone.
The technology isn’t an entirely new concept, as Jackbox Games’ Party Pack series of titles have done similar for a while, but the application shown here is certainly interesting, and looks to be a little more novel than just selecting from a range of answers.
The first two games were also shown off at the event, Hidden Agenda is a multiplayer murder mystery title, whilst That’s You is a more traditional party-game affair, that will be free to all PS+ subscribers from July.
Check out the trailers:
We also know there’s a Singstar title for PlayLink in the works, and a trivia quiz, Knowledge Is Power.
PlayLink certainly looks like it will bring party games to consoles when the first round of games launch later this year. Now, can someone get on the phone to Jason Donovan, and brink back Buzz, please?
