As expected, the ‘PlayStation Meeting’ took place today in Tokyo, Japan and one of the new things announced was ‘PlayStation Suite.’ According to Sony, this new service is meant to bring PlayStation content to Android phones and tablets. In doing this, Sony says that they’re attempting to draw in as many developers as they possibly can, while giving gamers the option of many different hardware choices. One of those hardware choices will be the newly announced ‘NGP,’ as it will be compatible with PlayStation Suite content.
In case you’re worried about the level of quality we’ll see when launching games for so many different devices, they’ve got you covered. They went on to reveal that they’ll be launching something called ‘PlayStation Certified’ with the goal of maintaining the level of quality you would expect from anything else with the PlayStation name.
Last, Sony announced that the PlayStation Store would be coming to Android devices as well, but at this time we’re unsure if that will be a part of PlayStation Suite, or if we’ll see a different app entirely. As far as a release date for PlayStation Suite goes, Sony left a pretty open window by saying that it would be available “within the next calendar year.”
We’ll surely see more clarification on this announcement over the next few days, so stay tuned.
