Sony Unveils PlayStation Mobile at Gamescom

August 15, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Sony has announced that it will launch it PlayStation Mobile in 9 countries this fall. Announcing the move at Gamescom, Sony described briefly how PlayStation Mobile works.

With this new service, Sony will be offering application software and other content across devices like the handheld PlayStation Vita and Xperia smartphones and tablets.

Previously branded the PlayStation Suite, it will provide a platform for third-party software developers and publishers to create new content like games for portable devices.

PlayStation Mobile will launch in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Australia with 30 new titles from a variety of categories, including Adventure, Action, Puzzle and Sports.

Titles will be created both by third-party publishers as well as Sony’s own SCE Worldwide Studios.

Titles can be purchased from the PlayStation Store, where they’ll be tied to a user’s PlayStation Network ID.

According to Sony, that means that one PlayStation Mobile purchase can be played on any certified device tied to that user ID.

Sony also announced that ASUS and Wikipad have been added as new PlayStation Certified partners, so expect some new supported hardware from these companies in the near future.

HTC will be the first non-Sony manufacturing company to offer PlayStation  Certified devices. The HTC One series handsets will be supported and the noted models include HTC One X, HTC One S, and the HTC One V.
