PlayStation Suite will bring PS One classics to Android 2.3 devices

Today Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) announced PlayStation Suite, a hardware-neutral game framework to bring the PlayStation experience to Android phones and tablets. SCE will start a license program called PlayStation Certified, where they will work with hardware manufacturers to “ensure the delivery of PlayStation quality experience across various devices.”

Devices that become PlayStation Certified will gain access to the new PlayStation Store, which will be initially filled with original PlayStation classics (titles to be announced shortly). In addition to PS One classics, SCE will provide a new gameĀ development environment that will bring newly created content to the PlayStation Suite.

SCE plans to deliver the PlayStation Suite “within this calendar year” and announced it will require at least Android 2.3.

Additional details should be coming next month at Mobile World Congress as the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is expected to become the first available device that is PlayStation Certified and ships with the PlayStation Store.
