Sony Announces PlayStation Suite– PlayStation Games Coming to Android

Gaming using the PlayStation Suite for Android

Can’t wait for the NGP/PSP2 to come to get your mobile PlayStation fix? If you’ve got an Android phone or tablet with version 2.3 Gingerbread or later (right now this means only the Nexus S), you’re in serious luck. Not only did Sony release those first bits of info on the NGP/PSP2 earlier today, but they also took the wraps off of their plans for an Android game platform called the PlayStation Suite.

The PlayStation Store in the PlayStation Suite on Android

The PlayStation Suite is kinda Sony’s answer to the Xbox Live app on Windows Phone 7, allowing Android devices to play first generation PlayStation games (the classics from the PlayStation One) while also offering a PlayStation Store for downloading new games. And as we said above, this will work on Android phones with Android 2.3 or later even if they don’t have special PlayStation controls like the Xperia Play (aka the still unannounced PSPhone) as there will be software controls like on the top pic of the snowboarding game above. The PlayStation Suite will also be available on the NGP/PSP2.

Sony didn’t announce which games will be coming the PlayStation Suite or when exactly it will come beyond the vague “before the end of the year,” but if you’re looking for a new Android phone (like one of those new, powerful upcoming Verizon and AT&T 4G phones) consider this a HUGE win.
