Speaking at the Tokyo Games Show, Sony confirms that the PS4 is able to stream mobile games to tablets and smartphones, thus negating the need to download them onto your phone or tablet. (Mobile, PS4, Sony)

Wait... so what does this mean?

you can play PS4 games on your mobile?

or you can play mobile games on your PS4?

or you can't play mobile games on your PS4, but you can store them on your PS4, then stream them to you mobile?

but how does that even work?

they would have to be running on the PS4? then streaming the image?

unless it just streams the files needed, and not image... eh i just won't worry about this anymore

How it works:

1) The PS4 sets up a remote connection between your mobile device and the PS4.

2) When you download a mobile game to your PS4 (say, Angry Birds) and decide to play it on your tablet, the PS4 does all the procession and encoding work.

3) The PS4 just streams the video to your mobile device. It's used for video and input only.

It saves memory off of your phone. You'll be able to store mobile games on PS4

Unless of course the app uses WiFi direct...
