A year ago, Nintendo announced its long-overdue plans to bring its games to smartphones. Today, Sony announced it's doing the same thing .

You'll soon be able to play original Sony games on your iOS or Android device, the company announced today. Sony's setting up a new business division called ForwardWorks, which will focus on mobile services, bringing "full-fledged game titles" and Sony's PlayStation characters and intellectual property to handheld smart devices. And it could be happening pretty soon-the press release says ForwardWorks kicks off operations next month.

Just a couple weeks ago in Japan, Nintendo finally released its first mobile app: a minigame-filled avatar maker called Miitomo .

Nintendo, which has been fiercely protective over its IP like Mario and Zelda, famously held out on making Nintendo games for non-Nintendo mobile devices for years. And now that its fellow Japanese electronics giant Sony is following suit- even dabbling in VR -it's all representative of a pretty seismic shift in video games, and in how we play games, from two of the biggest giants in the industry.
