The PlayStation 4 will come to North America on November 15th, and with it Sony plans to launch a companion app for Android and iOS devices. Completely redesigned, the new PS4 app was first announced by Sony in February, with more details just revealed at the Tokyo Games Show. Access to the PlayStation Network from a phone or tablet is only the tip of the iceberg.
PS4 gamers can actually use their mobile devices as a second screen with certain games. Much like the PlayStation Vita, this feature makes it possible to use the app as a controller or view supplementary game content on mobile hardware. For example, a map could be displayed on your Android phone while completing a mission on the main TV.
