Playstation coming to Android

At Sony's Playstation Meeting 2011 in which it unveiled its upcoming handheld, the NGP, the videogame producer also unveiled Playstation Suite, a platform for its older and newly-produced Playstation products to be implemented onto the Android platform.

It had been rumored for months that Sony was going to produce a Playstation Phone: a phone which not only contained Android but also Playstation-specifc products. However, while Sony is indeed working on a special phone dedicated to Playstation gaming, entitled the Xperia Play, Sony's Playstation Suite will be available for many if not all Android devices to enjoy, provided they have Android 2.3 or higher installed.

The Playstation Suite is a platform on which Sony will release products onto Android Phones. Currently, the company will be releasing PSOne-emulated games onto the service, and it will also be providing new game experiences over time onto the platform.

Not only that, but Sony will be providing a Playstation Certified service in which Sony certifies and provides Quality Assurance on hardware platforms, ensuring a quality gaming experience on particular mobile devices.

Playstation Suite will, of course, be accessible on the NGP, too, when it releases within the next year. A launch date for the Suite itself has not been disclosed, but it appears close to completion.
