Formerly known as PlayStation Suite, Sony have went into further detail about the PlayStation Mobile service at their Gamescom conference. They’ve said that it’s getting support from major developers, as well as indie “bedroom” devs to create “snacked sized games”.
Lemmings was shown in the sizzle, as well as PS Minis game Hungry Giraffe, amongst a plethora of other titles, so there’s bound to be an abundance of titles readily available. All you’ll need is a PSN ID, and there’s a dedicated store across various devices – Sony certified phones, tablets and the Vita.
You’re able to buy these games once and play them on any of the devices, which is a great deal. Also announced was support for ASUS and Wikipad devices, so this could be something really big if it catches on.
It might even be an alternative to Google Play or the App Store for some developers, we’ll find out just how successful it will be when it releases later this Autumn.
