Sony Having Another Shot at a Gaming App Store With PlayStation Mobile

By Gary Cutlack on at

PlayStation Mobile is yet another way of shovelling "content" in your direction, with Sony's cross-platform portal set to let users of all sorts of hardware access their games through either its PS Vita handheld or any other PlayStation-certified phones or tablets.

This is a more comprehensive effort than we've seen from Sony in the past. Your PlayStation Mobile stuff will be connected and operated through a single PlayStation Network account, meaning it ought to be super-simple to shuffle games, saves and links between anything running the PS Mobile app.

Asus and Wikipad have also joined HTC in becoming PlayStation-certified hardware makers, with Japan, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Australia the first countries to see the interconnected PS Mobile dream arrive this autumn, alongside around 30 new games to play.
