Called PlayLink, this new "category of games" (as Sony calls it) is aimed primarily at the casual gamer and designed with social play in mind.

"PlayLink games turn your smartphone or tablet into a versatile controller - you can swipe, pinch, drag, tilt, rotate or even snap selfies and draw crafty doodles, depending on the game". Console titles aside, the company also introduced PlayLink, which allows users to play games with family and friends using their smartphones and tablets. No details were given other than names and PlayLink affiliation.

With PlayLink, you can connect Android tablets and phones by using the companion PlayLink app, and playing PlayLink specific games downloaded onto your PS4 console. And the social-based titles are, according to Sony, created to attract people who normally don't sit down and play games on a television or computer. "Although it was a single player experience, on the internet we saw people streaming it together as a group, and all shouting out the answers to different decisions". Players will take wacky photos of each other, draw doodles on their smartphones, answer truth-or-dare-style questions, and play a number of other light-hearted mini-games meant to create a more social experience accessible to non-gamers. It'll be free to PlayStation Plus subscribers on July 4th.

Other games that are a part of the PlayLink collection are Frantics, SingStar Celebration, and Knowledge is Power. Whether it's your birthday, Christmas, New Year's Eve or even just a Saturday night - SingStar Celebration is the ideal playlist to any party, with up to eight players able to join in the fun. PlayLink, a new format for the popular brand, aims to merge mobile and traditional gaming. Hidden Agenda is due out sometime later this year.
