The latest release notes for PlayStation Mobile might suggest that the service could be moving away from just being aimed at Vita and other certified Android phones and tablets.
Why? Because they list DualShock 3 controller support for the PC simulator.
Now, obviously this doesn’t automatically mean Sony are working on mainline console support for Mobile, but it might signify a shift in focus with the service – a few comments regarding the PS4 showing mentioned the lack of cheaper, more indie-led titles in an iOS like Store.
The beta version doesn’t currently let you compile Store-ready master versions (another release will appear in March) but until then if you’re a registered developer it might be worth having a quick look.
We’ve pinged a couple of PSM developers for comment.
Other changes include automatic screen scaling, more sound format support and a boost to the Vita’s CPU performance, which might make some of the titles run a little smoother.
No mention of further expanding the country list that Mobile works on.
Update: one developer urged caution on this, suggesting it’s just an analog for other similarly set-out controllers (like the Vita) and doesn’t indicate a PS3 version. At least, not based on this.
