Back in August, Sony started talking up PlayStation Mobile at Gamescon. PlayStation Mobile is Sony's initiative aiming at making Android devices able to play PlayStation style games. Originally, only Sony branded smartphones and tablets were to be offered access to PlayStation Mobile. Sony later started accepting third-party devices from Asus and others.
Sony announced this week that it would start delivering content for PlayStation Mobile through the PlayStation Store on October 3. Sony promises that the launch of the service will see PlayStation-like content delivered on a variety of mobile devices that are popular today. The service will launch in nine different countries.
Launch countries include Japan, the United States, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Australia. Sony says that more countries will follow and at launch, users will be able to enjoy 30 new titles in a variety of gaming genres. Games will be offered in adventure, action, puzzle, sports, and simulation genres.
Sony says that the games will sell for between 50 and 850 yen in Japan. Games will be available that were created by Sony and from third-party developers and publishers. Sony will continue to expand the available library of games on PlayStation Mobile as new titles become available. Sony also intends to accelerate the expansion of PlayStation Certified devices so more smartphones and tablets will be able to access the games.
