The upcoming Play Station Vita is supposed to be Sony’s next big thing (although early sales figures suggest otherwise) and boasts a brand new OS to operate it. Now, it looks like the OS could make it’s way to other devices as well.

AV Watch reports the words of the Sony Computer Entertainment Senior Vice President Yoshio Matsumoto, saying the following:

“If you’re asking if we’ve made it in a way that’s expandable, so that it’s possible to apply to smartphones and tablets on top of achieving the high responsiveness we need for gaming devices – it is possible. That doesn’t mean that we’re applying it to smartphones and tablets at this point in time, but it’s been designed with expandability in mind.”

The only reason I’d be interested in that is it the games themselves work on those other devices as well. That would be pretty sweet.

But other than that, do we really need another OS saturating the market?
