Sony Announces Seven New Titles for PlayLink

By Sam Quirke, 3 months ago
Last year at E3, PlayStation announced PlayLink, a collection of titles aimed at party and family play. All games in the collection would be playable using your mobile phone as a controller, meaning that everyone in the room can easily get involved regardless of the amount of controllers available or their familiarity with console gaming.

To celebrate its first birthday, PlayLink's creators announced a further seven titles to come to the collection in the coming months via the PlayStation Blog. Here's the trailer:
