Sony looking to bring games to Smartphones

Sony has noticed that smartphones aren't going anywhere and have created a new division to help bring games to smartphones based on popular PlayStation titles. Nintendo has started to do the same a while back as everyone is looking to capitalize on the fact that pretty much everyone has a smartphone and uses it for casual gaming regularly. Bloomberg has more on Sony's newest venture.

Sony Corp. is looking to extend its lead in video games by pushing into smartphones with titles derived from its top-selling PlayStation consoles.

The electronics and entertainment conglomerate is creating a new unit called ForwardWorks Corp., which will develop and sell applications and content for smartphone users in Japan and Asia, the Tokyo-based company said in a statement Thursday.
