There's several innovative things being tried with the upcoming PlayStation 4 console, but one thing that should especially interest the Android community is the system's mobile trimmings.

Sony has recently released some images that give hints at how your PS4 profile will look on tablets and smartphones, and at a glance, it looks extremely similar to the interface that was seen during the company's press conference last February.

This is all due to a custom PlayStation app that will reportedly allow players to "purchase PS4 games while away from home and download it directly to the console at home, or remotely watch other gamers playing on their devices."

Of course, there's a lot of profile management that goes with it, as shown in the new images.

Aside from buying and watching games, it appears that you can manage your messages, curate your friends list and generally browse through the PlayStation Network just as if you were using the main system.

That's also accounting for Cross Play, which Sony has hinted will be a key part of making the PS4 accessible even when you're not at home. Naturally, we suspect that some features are exclusive to "PlayStation Certified" hardware, but we'll get the full details later this year as more features are outlined.
