Sony shows off PS4 second screen app, use your phone as a game controller

Over at the Tokyo Games Show, Sony has been showing off its new second screen PS4 companion app. The app, while demonstrated on a Sony Xperia Z1 – not surprisingly – will be coming to iOS as well as Android to offer an integrated experience between your smartphone and your shiny new PS4 when it arrives later this year.

Beyond being a mobile hub for the PlayStation Network (PSN) the app will also allow you to control the games you're playing from your phone by way of the "connect to PS4" option. Beyond downloading the app, PS4 games won't need any other special software to take advantage.
