Beyond the controller
Sony made Beyond Touch available on iOS and Android devices in September, a companion app allowing owners of Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls to control all of the game's action using their smartphones. This application was previously announced during GamesCom 2013 in August.
As you can see in the image to your right, protagonist Jodie Holmes is moved by swiping your finger across the screen; holding the camera button and dragging your digit allows you to view your surroundings and various prompts will appear on the screen to help you to execute different actions. It's possible to play the whole game on your mobile or tablet devices if you want to avoid the supposed complexity of the DualShock 3 controller.
