Sony partners with HTC to produce line of PlayStation certified phones; PlayStation Suite renamed
So many things were announced at Sony’s E3 press conference. So many things.
Among them was the revelation that “PlayStation certified” titles will soon be accessibly from more than just Sony devices. Andrew House, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, announced that the company has formed a partnership with phone manufacturer HTC to produce a line of PlayStation certified Android phones.
All of these devices will be able to access the PlayStation Store and download and play games developed with PlayStation Suite, the toolkit that allows developers to tie their PlayStation products into Android devices. Games played on touch-screen devices will come with virtual buttons on the screen, while devices that include analog controls, such as the Sony Xperia, will be able to use traditional controls.
Oh, and one last thing. PlayStation Suite is no longer going by that name. From now on, it shall be known as PlayStation Mobile.
