Sony brings PS4 games to phones

Sony thinks it has solved the problem of interrupted PlayStation gaming when the player's family wants to use the living room TV.

A new app, exclusive to its Xperia smartphone and tablet range, allows for remote playing of PS4 titles when the devices are on the same wi-fi network.

It requires the player to attach their smartphone or tablet to a special suction device, which then clips onto a standard PS4 controller.

BBC technology reporter Dave Lee saw the solution in action, and quizzed Benoit Obadia from Sony Mobile.
