Sony PlayStation Suite Cross Platform Gaming Framework Unveiled
Well, well, if you were expecting Sony to push out one PlayStation smartphone for all you gamers to get to grips with, such as the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play PlayStation phone, then you’d be wrong, well sort of as apparently Sony have just unveiled a whole lot more.
According to an article over on Engadget by Sean Hollister, Sony has unveiled a PlayStation phone experience for everyone by unveiling their cross-platform framework that they have called PlayStation Suite.
Basically cutting out all the tech speak, what that means is there will be an official Sony PlayStation Store that will offer PlayStation games for Android smartphones and Android based tablets, sounds good doesn’t it.
Apparently Sony will begin by offering an emulator for PSOne games and has promised an Android game store sometime later in the year.
Word is Sony is calling the new software framework a “hardware-neutral” development to make it possible to bring games to all types of handheld devices along with “new and exciting” content.
Apparently though PlayStation Suite minimum requirement will be Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and is PSOne and not PlayStation Portable titles which will be emulated. No word on just what titles there will be or any pricing yet though.
