Sony wants to do more with mobile: Sony has so far done little with its PlayStation franchises on mobile devices, apart from the game Uncharted: Fortune Hunter. That may change soon, as there is a remarkable job offer surfaced.
Sony wants to do more with mobile
Sony is looking for a new manager who works at PlayStation Studios on games for mobile devices. It is intended that “the most popular franchise” make the switch. No further titles or plans are mentioned within the vacancy; it is clear that the designated person is developing a strategy for the next three to five years.
The Japanese company has been trying to merge the PlayStation brand with the mobile market for years, but so far it does not really work. The most famous attempt is the Xperia Play: a phone that was renamed the PlayStation smartphone, as it had a fully functioning controller on board. The phone came with some PlayStation games and interested parties could also purchase individual games.
The phone is still loved by some gamers because it runs on Android and can therefore easily run emulator applications for playing games from other platforms. With a few simple steps, the phone can be turned into an emulation machine, although better alternatives are available today. But at the time it was perhaps the best option, because of that controller under the screen.
