Sony PlayStation 4 will not feature a controller with a second display, like Nintendo Wii U, but it will still support second-screens with the help of mobile devices, including PlayStation Vita portable game console as well as various gadgets based on Apple iOS as well as Google Android operating systems.

The PS4 integrates second screens, including PlayStation Vita, smartphones and tablets, to wrap gamers in their favorite content wherever they are. A key feature enabled by second screens is “Remote Play” and PS4 fully unlocks its potential by making PS Vita the ultimate companion device. With PS Vita, gamers will be able to seamlessly pull PS4 titles from their living room TVs and play them on PS Vita’s 5” display and intuitive dual analog sticks over Wi-Fi networks. It is Sony’s long-term vision is to make most PS4 titles playable on PS Vita through cloud streaming.

“PS Vita is the ultimate companion device for PS4, enabling gamers to pull their games from their beautiful HDTVs to PS Vita’s beautiful 5,” said David Perry, chief executive officer of Gaikai video game streaming service owned by Sony.

A new application from SCE called “PlayStation App” will enable Apple iPhone, iPad, and Google Android-based smartphones and tablets to become second screens. Once installed on these devices, users can, for example, see maps on their second screens when playing an adventure game, purchase PS4 games while away from home and download it directly to the console at home, or remotely watch other gamers playing on their devices.
