PlayStation PlayLink: The most fun you will have this Festive Season.

The Festive Season is upon us and what better way to spend it than by playing games with the family. PlayStation’s PlayLink facility makes this possible by letting players connect their mobile phones to a PlayStation 4 console, via WI-FI, in order to play various, compatible PlayLink titles. Each title – which includes the likes of That’s You!, Hidden Agenda, Knowledge is Power, and SingStar Celebration – comes with its own application, which will need to be downloaded to a mobile device. This, in turn, turns the mobile phone into a controller.

While each game is different, most of the gameplay mechanics are fairly similar in each title. That’s You! has players taking selfies, drawing pictures and answering trivia questions about one another… While Knowledge is Power pits players against each other in Trivial Pursuit style. It’s all good fun at the end of the day, and most definitely something to invest in over the Festive Season.

In addition to this, the game’s don’t cost a ton of money either. Knowledge is Power is currently R329 and so is That’s You! That’s You! is also available free of charge to PlayStation Plus Members.

To find out more about these titles, be sure to check them out below.
