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. Now according to sources at the AsiaD conference this week Sony’s been talking about just that. While no specific details were given, they do plan to offer the Playstation Suite to non-Sony devices in the future.
The Playstation Store just launched for their Tablet S as well as the new Sony Music Unlimited so things are starting to finally come together over in Sony’s Android camp. Being able to play games like Crash Bandicoot or Jet Moto on other Android devices sure would be neat though right? I was able to enjoy Crash Bandicoot during my hands-on with the Tablet S.
While the SDK won’t be available until at least next month, SCE Chairman Kaz Hirai told Engadget at AsiaD that its Android-friendly framework is still open to all other manufacturers. Kaz did go on to mention they don’t plan to keep it exclusively in the Sony family and that Sony is currently “in discussions with non-Sony companies to bring them onboard.”
No specific details or timeframe was given but they mention we’ll all hear about it once something becomes official. For now we’ll have to wait a little longer before we get to play games like Final Fantasy natively on our Android tablets.
