HTC looking to get PlayStation certification for its devices HTC will become one of the only companies outside of Sony to have full PlayStation certification for its mobile devices.
The announcement will come at some point this year, and HTC device owners will then be able to download and play Sony PSOne games.

Sony introduced the certification program when it launched the PS Vita in Japan last year. At the time, new CEO Kaz Hirai had said the program "expands the PlayStation experience beyond the PSP border. It is the first cross-platform endeavor."

The program is available to all Android tablet/smartphone makers.

HTC has tried to halt its recent sales slide by moving on popular features for the younger generations, including buying Beats Audio and making all current devices Beats certified.
