Verizon will introduce Sony’s PlayStation-linked smartphone

Sony is turning to the booming PlayStation business to help its struggling smartphone division, unveiling a new mobile device with Verizon Communications that streams video games.

The new Xperia Z3v phone will go on sale in the United States on Oct. 23 at Verizon stores, Kunimasa Suzuki, Sony’s mobile chief, said yesterday at an event in New York. The agreement adds the largest U.S. carrier for its Xperia smartphones, joining fourth-ranked T-Mobile.

The new phone will let users access PlayStation 4 games remotely if they own the console and software.

The Tokyo-based company said in August that more than 10 million consoles have been sold worldwide, marking the fastest growth in PlayStation’s hardware history.
