With the PS4 companion app for iOS, buy a new game and have it waiting for you at home
Back in February we first heard about Sony's plans for a companion app for iOS to their new PlayStation 4 console. Part of the functionality will be a mobile store – sort of like the one Steam already offers – where you will be able to purchase new PS4 titles on the go. Now it seems that it goes a little further than that. Sony’s President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida (via BGR):
The statement was made on Twitter in response to a question about how the new system will work. If this is how it's going to pan out though, that's a pretty fantastic feature to have. It's also a great sign of the times we live in, and just how much our smartphones are becoming more and more the go-to tool for almost anything.
I'm all for replacing disks with digital downloads, and I'm pretty sure I'll be putting this to work if/when I end up getting a PS4. How about you?
