Sony looking to expand PlayStation brand to more mobiles

Sony has confirmed it is looking to expand the PlayStation brand further into the mobile market.
PlayStation Digital Platforms senior director Jack Buser showed off the company's new development platform, dubbed PlayStation Suite, which will be available to devs looking to work on "PlayStation Certified" Android phones and tablets.

Explains nseek: "The idea is that binaries written for Vita can be adapted to run on such devices without porting, meaning developers using the PS Suite software will also be able to write games for Vita."

The amount of Certified devices is extremely small, as of now, with only a few Sony and Sony Ericsson devices having the distinction.

Sony hopes to expand the Suite and its capabilities to HTC, Motorola and Samsung in the near future.

For now, the Suite is in open beta but will cost money to access, at a minimum of $99. Check it here: PS Suite
