E3 2012: Playstation Suite Rebranded as Playstation Mobile, Coming to HTC One Phones

Jun 6, 2012

While the Xperia Play’s future is unknown, what is known is that the Playstation Suite for Android is not dead, and it’s expanding out beyond the bounds of Sony. HTC phones will begin to get access to Playstation games and other titles developed through Sony’s SDK, which is now retitled Playstation Mobile. The first phones with support are all from the HTC One line, including the X, S and V models.

The expansion of Playstation Mobile, along with support for the Playstation Vita, may prove to be a motivator for third party developers using the SDK, and it shows a commitment by Sony to keep their footprint on mobile while they try to make the Playstation Vita a success. At worst, it means that more phones could potentially be playing PS1 games in the future! Being able to possibly play Tomba! anywhere without having to charge up my PSP? That has me excited!

Mobbles Introduces an Exclusive Creature for E3 2012: Cuby

Mobbles Introduces an Exclusive Creature for E3 2012: Cuby

Jun 5, 2012

Mobbles, the game that uses geolocation to let players track and capture cute creatures based in the world around them, has a special creature in honor of E3 for convention-goers.

Those at the Los Angeles Convention Center, which is hosting E3, can load up Mobbles and get an exclusive creature: Cuby. He’s an interesting Tron-esque fellow with a cubed head, and the ability to transform into an arcade machine. Do not attempt to put quarters in Cuby.

Cuby can be acquired by downloading either the iOS or Android version of Mobbles, and opening up the Mobbles Radar. Cuby should then show up, and he can be fed, played with, and raised like every other Mobble. Those who get Cuby should be careful, because Mobbles can potentially die, and who wants to lose Cuby? It’s on your guilty conscience if you screw this up, E3 attendees. Hurry up, because he’s only available through the 7th.
