Sony confirms HTC as an official PlayStation Certified partner

We first heard about this back in February, and now it’s official: HTC has joined Sony’s PlayStation Certified license program. With this move, Sony “aims to deliver the PlayStation experience to even more users around the world”, while HTC is obviously looking to make its smartphones (and tablets?) more appealing to those into mobile gaming.

HTC didn’t say exactly when it would launch PlayStation Certified devices. According to previous reports, it should happen before the end of 2012.

We don’t know if current HTC smartphones – like the One X / XL or One S – will have access to PlayStation games, too.

In addition to unveiling the partnership with HTC, Sony also announced that it’s “renaming PlayStation Suite to PlayStation Mobile, and positions it as a new platform.”

    Xperia Play hasn’t even officially gotten the playstation store in the US and they announce HTC as a partner. It’s disappointing and baffling that they don’t support their own products but it’s exciting to be able to legitimately get PS1 on a device from a manufacturer that doesn’t suck it’s own toes.
