Official PlayStation Mobile support for Asus and WikiPad products has just been granted, meaning there might come a day when you'll be able to play PlayStation-certified games on devices such as the most recent Asus Transformer Pad Android tablets. PlayStation Mobile will enable users with either a Sony PlayStation Vita or a PlayStation-certified tablet computer to download and play exclusive games that are not available anywhere else. The platform is currently in open beta, and is open to big-name developers and indie developers alike. Compatible devices from Asus and WikiPad are expected to be unveiled soon.
What Else You need To Know:
- Sony's PlayStation Mobile was formerly known as PlayStation Suite and is being offered as a way to download games for PlayStation or PlayStation-certified devices.
There's currently no shortage of decent games for Android and iOS, so unless Sony works really hard to stuff PlayStation Mobile with brilliant time-wasters that you can't get anywhere else, I think it'll struggle to stand out from the crowd.- Luke Westaway, CNet UK
