PS Vita users who plan to buy a PlayStation 4 will soon have a "second screen" app at their fingertips.

Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony's Worldwide Studios for Sony Computer Entertainment, was recently asked on Twitter whether the Vita would get a version of the PlayStation4 app due out in November for iOS and Android users.

In response, Yoshida promised that Sony would add the app, dubbed PS4 Link, to the Vita with the next update.

Assuming PS Link acts as a full companion app for the PS4, it would allow PS Vita owners to use their device as a second screen, mimicking or expanding the gameplay from the console. It would also let users hop onto the Sony PlayStation network where they can watch what others are playing, accept invitations to join in, and download games directly to the PS4.

The PlayStation 4 is slated to launch November 15 in North America.
