    Case:
    A Unity PS4 game that is viewed on the TV screen but played mainly by using android devices, not PS4 controllers. The game is a local multiplayer game; the PS4 game identifies the players through the WIFI network or by initiating a wifi direct from PS4 to the multiple phones.
    Question:
    Can this be achieved with Unity? Where do I start to look, I'm new here :) BTW, I don't know if this is the right place for this post, my apologies if this isn't.

    Cheers,
    Kabo

    Sony is notorious for restricting what the PS4 is allowed to talk to, so perhaps the question is better asked on whatever developer forums Sony provides.

    Yes that's what I was looking for, thanks. But where is the "PlayStation forum of Unity" ? I couldn't find it here.
    I'm also new to this and need a good starting point for developing PS4 games with Unity, do you know where I could start ?
