Android to get PlayStation titles

Written by David Stellmack

Needs to be certified a PlayStation device
In perhaps a surprise that we didn’t expect out of Tokyo, Sony announced PlayStation would be coming to Android. This is a new program where by Sony has created a hardware neutral framework that it is calling the “PlayStation Suite” where the company will grant compatible mobile Android devices the tag of “PlayStation Certified”.

Once you have a PlayStation Certified Android device you will be able to play titles from the PlayStation Suite library that we expect to be a downloadable service where you can purchase the titles for download into your Android device.

The primary target for software for the PlayStation Suite will be PSOne titles. Current plans call for PlayStation Suite to offer Cool Boarders 2, Medievil, Rally Cross, and Wild Arms as some of the first offerings for the PlayStation Suite for Android.

Sony in conjunction with Ericsson will be offering a PlayStation Android smartphone device as well that will be PlayStation Certified and it is likely to be one if not the first Android phone to offer support for the PlayStation Suite. More details on this will follow.

It's not that big of a surprise, considering the PlayStation Phone you reported on 27 October 2010 and the fact that it looks almost exactly like an Xperia X10.

Speaking of which, I wonder whether the Sony Xperia X10 will be "certified" or if they will want people to buy new devices for it. It doesn't have multitouch because of a hardware design problem which currently makes it a bit crappy for most games.

Yea i wonder if these so called "certified" devices will have the updated version of Android too as their xperia phones are still running 1.6 with no plans to upgrade.

Well since Fud didn't provide a link, where can I see it?

PS Suite is basically a PSOne emulator for Android at this point. That isn't a bad thing at all. An officially sanctioned emulator with a marketplace is a big deal. If they can ramp it up to PS2 and PSP titles that is win-win-win for Sony-Google-consumer. Apple, your move.

Sounds pretty cool but playing games with touchscreen only sucks.
Sony should redesign the PSP Phone, great idea but horrible looks and slow technic.
