HTC to be First Non-Sony Licensed Manufacturer of PlayStation Certified Devices

During Sony’s E3 conference, the company announced that they would be renaming their PlayStation Suite to PlayStation Mobile and that their first 3rd-party hardware partner would be none other than HTC. While no future HTC PS-certified device was unveiled at E3 yet, the One X was used as an example of the collaboration and was also used in some promotional video to announce the partnership. 

Since the announcement of the PS Suite last year, most consumers thought it would only be Sony Ericsson, now Sony Mobile that would be creating the gaming-centric devices. With this new partnership, we could see a huge leap in the quality and marketing of these PS-certifed devices, with hopefully some fantastic titles being created in the near future. Mobile gaming is on the up-and-up.

    Simple question: what does really PS Certified mean? I have Xperia S which a great device but PS Certified does not add any value and the guys selling the device could not answer this question

  • Nice I made the tip! Droid life famous.

    I’m geting the GS3 so I am a little jealous. But then I remember I will put N64oid and play conkers bad fur day and mario kart and others on there for free so i dont care much.

      It’s kind of a shame Yongzh sort of abandoned his emulators, mupen64plus AE is starting to eclipse n64oid lately.

    They’d be dumb not to make the One X the first on board.

      The one x series is already a certified device. The device that they were holding was a one x at the press conference obviously. And the phone is at the sony e3 booth along with the s and v. Check the verge if you dont believe me.

        The comment was actually meant to be a general “no duh” and not meant to be argumentative. But, I believe you anyway =)…

    Really curious about what the requirements are of these. If I had to guess, I’d say that whether something was PS-certified had less to do with the specs of the device and more to do with willingness to form a business partnership with Sony.

      what happened to the sony xpiria line of phones? They didn’t even include it, guess they’re not going with the xperia play 2. All gaming companies need to make games not just cross platforms but cross devices like what the glass project is trying to do. Not reaching out to phones and tablets is just missing the potential revenue of impulse buys on those devices.
