Taking a leaf out of Nintendo’s guide, PlayStation is claimed to be making one other push on cell gaming in 2016.


Sony is sort of able to announce its newest try and get the PlayStation model lively on cell units, apparently.

We’ve recognized since March this 12 months that Sony was planning this through its cell arm, ForwardWorks, however a brand new report from Nikkei suggests in-development titles can be introduced earlier than the top of the 12 months.

The report reiterates Sony’s March messaging that the video games can be primarily based on “popular PlayStation series”.

At this stage the unknown video games are solely slated for Japan and choose Asian territories, however apparently, the report suggests these new smartphone and pill video games could also be linked to console experiences ultimately. If so, there’s an opportunity they could come west.

Sony’s previous makes an attempt to deliver cell and console players along with initiatives just like the PlayStation Phone Xperia (pictured) and Vita-friendly PlayStation Mobile platform haven’t been vastly profitable. That could have one thing to do with the agency’s insistence on focusing on particular, largely Sony-branded somewhat than opening as much as Apple and wider Android units, although.

Meanwhile, Pokemon Go continues to be minting it in every single place and Nintendo’s different cell efforts are focusing on a big selection of units. Let’s hope Sony follows go well with if it’s actually severe about establishing an ecosystem to mutual profit either side of the gaming divide.
