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!
