Android fanboys rejoice while haters weep.
Just fresh from the huge PlayStation event being held in Tokyo today, Sony has announced that they’re launching a program through which ‘certified’ PlayStation games will be made available to users on the Android platform.
Sony is calling their latest endeavour the ‘PlayStation Suite’ and is designed to act as a gaming platform to span many devices rather than just being limited to one. Original PlayStation 1 games will bear the “PlayStation Certified” tag and will be available to mobiles in what has been dubbed a “hardware neutral game framework”. This massive announcement means the PlayStation experience will be available to millions of Android users worldwide. There will even be on-screen touchscreen control emulator if your phone doesn’t have the po-pout controller. No doubt many a peripheral will now appear with the controls.
The PlayStation Suite is to be an “official PlayStation Store filled with games for your Android tablets and cellphones.” This will mean first-party licensing and quality-assurance. What’s more is that the new PlayStation Portable will be able to play all these games right out of the box.
No details on prices of games or compatible devices are known as of now.
