Sony aims to bring the Playstation Suite to Non-Sony Android devices

Sony and their popular Playstation Suite is currently only available for a few Sony devices, which makes total sense. When first announced Sony did mention they planned to eventually bring it to other devices in the near future.

While no specific details were given, they do plan to offer the Playstation Suite to non-Sony devices in the future.

Sony S1/S2 tablets get PlayStation demo and video fondle

The last video teaser we saw of the Sony S1 and S2 tablets, the company was strapping them to a Rube Goldberg-style machine and hardly telling us anything at all. Happily a brief demo of the Android Honeycomb prototypes in Munich this week has been more elucidating; while Sony still isn't saying much about final specs or software, at least Golem got to briefly play with the slates. The S1's 9.7-inch display, folded-magazine style tapered form factor and light, 600g weight met with approval, the wedge shape make for something easy to hold. Sony apparently had Crash Bandicoot running on the tablet, with the on-screen PlayStation controls straightforward to use. The company is still generally quiet, but has apparently confirmed PlayStation Suite compatibility. As for the S2, that's a lot more compact than we initially expected - the clamshell form-factor hiding its dual 5.5-inch touchscreens well - and does a decent job of minimizing the gap between the two panels. Sony hasn't confirmed pricing or availability, but previous leaks have suggested a September launch in Europe which could well mean an IFA 2011 official reveal. [youtube nGyynWokrpA] [via SlashGear]

Raving Babies for Xperia PLAY Review

Oh my goodness what kind of a weird game is this? It's called Raving Babies, a game out exclusively on Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY being released on Verizon Wireless. The gameplay is simple enough - walk sideways and shoot your gun, defeating the enemies. Just like Ninja Turtles, Simpsons, NARC, and every other game from the 1990s. The difference here is that you've got it on your little screen and you're playing it with an Xperia PlayStation controller. Also the objective is to placate a bunch of hostile babies with your pacifier gun so that you can scoop them up and let them know how bad they've been with a time out!

Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY Hands-On and Unboxing [Verizon]

Well what do you know? We got a PlayStation phone in the mail! This device is one of Verizon's newest handsets, it being produced by Sony Ericsson and of course it being the very first and only PlayStation Certified smartphone in the world. It's running Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread, connects to data via Verizon's 3G network, and it comes in a rather unexciting box. It'll sell itself, I swear! Inside the device you'll find more than just guts, you'll find a perfectly usable set of PlayStation controls including flat joysticks, directional pad, and four PlayStation buttons. There's also a start button, a select button, and an extra Android menu button so you don't have to reach all the way up to the side of the display. Left and Right buttons are up top (behind the display when open) and a volume dongle sits in the middle. Lets get our hands on it and see how it goes!

Xperia Play CDMA phone hits the FCC

The Sony Xperia Play made a repeat performance at the FCC this weekend, as it's CDMA twin received Federal consideration. The inaugural Playstation certified handset, shows a SIM card slot that's different from Verizon's 4G LTE devices. This is leading some to speculate if this is a 3G only device, at least for testing purposes. We haven't seen any 4G association with the phone's advertizing with Verizon, and only rumors are circulating as to the Xperia Play launching later this month. But as we reported here, the Xperia Play is coming to 11 markets around the world, just not the US initially.
