Sony launches new X Mount accessory for gamers with Xperia smartphones
We're definitely living in an era of entertainment and if you're not a gamer, surely there are other activities meant to relax you. Well, Sony has just announced an interesting gadget that's exclusively aimed at gamers who own a PlayStation 4 console.

The so-called X Mount accessory is designed to attach Xperia smartphones to a DualShock 4 controller, which will allow gamers to take advantage of the Remote Play feature provided by PlayStation 4 consoles.

If you're thinking of buying one of these, here are all the Sony smartphones compatible: Xperia XZ1, Xperia XZ1 Compact, Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZs, Xperia XZ, Xperia X Compact, Xperia X Performance, Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact, and Xperia Z5 Premium


The X Mount will be available for purchase starting June, but no information about price has been unveiled yet. The accessory will be initially introduced in Japan, but it's likely to make it to other markets soon afterward.

No it's not. The old one is attached to the phone via suction. This one is a clamp.

This is different. Sony uses the phone as TV. It is not for phone games.

See this is where Sony fails. This gadget should be bundled with their phones, not sold separately for a ridiculous price.

Not all phone buyers have PS4. You might want to consider that.
