Recently Activision has taken steps towards a bigger smartphone presence, and it seems like Sony is about to follow suit. This isn't all that strange considering how popular games like Among Us, Call of Duty: Mobile, Fortnite and PUBG Mobile has become.
We wouldn't mind Gran Turismo, God of War and Uncharted for our smartphones. Do you have any favorites amongst Sony's "most popular franchises" in mind that you think would make a great mobile game?
