PlayStation Suite Coming to Tegra Based Smart Phones & Tablets
Early this near, when Sony debuted their ultra powerful NGP gaming device, they also announced the PlayStation Suite, a repository for mobile games. The PlayStation Suite, for the first time, will allow “approved” non-Sony devices like smart phones and tablets to run PlayStation quality games. This of course would be awesome and we can’t think of anything cooler than being able to play Resident Evil and Syphon Filter on the go, but Sony didn’t exactly say which phones this might be coming to or what sorts of things manufacturers would need to do to be “approved.” So far, only Sony’s own Xperia Play has been certified.
Today however, it looks like we’ve been thrown a bread crumb or two from the team over at Nvidia. According to to news posted in the Tegra Zone Android App, Sony will be bringing the PlayStation Suite to Tegra-based devices. Naturally, the post doesn’t say which devices, but a quick survey of the Tegra landscape includes devices like the Motorola Xoom, LG Optimus 2x, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung Galaxy S2, Motorala Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid Bionic, LG Optimus Pad, and the Toshiba tablet to name a few.
Is it possible that all of these devices might see some Sony love, perhaps giving Nvidia a leg up on their processor competitors? Or will this be limited to Sony based Tegra products? No one really knows but Sony, so we’ll just have to wait and see when the Playstation Suite launches later this year.
