SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT TO UNVEIL
“PLAYSTATION®SUITE,” DELIVERING THE WORLD
OF PLAYSTATION® TO ANDROID™ BASED PORTABLE DEVICES

Simultaneously Launching “PlayStation®Certified” License Program to Provide
PlayStation® Content and Development Support for Android™ Based Portable Devices

Tokyo, January 27, 2011– Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) today unveiled “PlayStation®Suite” (PS Suite), delivering the PlayStation® experience to Android™ based portable devices*1. Through this entirely new initiative, users will be able to enjoy PlayStation content on an open operating system for the first time in PlayStation history.
In the dramatically evolving and diversifying mobile market, the number of users who enjoy games casually on a variety of devices including mobile phones, smart-phones and tablet PCs, has been increasing significantly. By offering “PlayStation quality” content to this rapidly growing market, SCE will not only deliver the PlayStation experience to a wider base of users around the globe, but will also be able to offer game developers and publishers the potential to further expand their business opportunities to these devices.
In providing the PlayStation experience on Android based portable devices, SCE will commence a “PlayStation®Certified” license program for hardware manufacturers. Through this program, SCE will offer necessary support, including development support as well as logo licensing, to ensure the delivery of PlayStation quality experience across various devices.

On the software front, SCE plans to provide PS Suite content within this calendar year, starting with original PlayStation games*2 (PS one® classics) that will allow users to enjoy “PlayStation quality” gameplay on their Android based portable devices. SCE also plans to open PlayStation®Store where users will be able to download content in an easy to use environment, directly via the Android based portable devices. Moreover, SCE will provide a new game development environment in an effort to ensure new and compelling content is delivered on PS Suite, which will also offer opportunities for a wider base of developers and publishers to further expand their business on various portable devices.

Newly developed content for PS Suite can also be enjoyed on the next generation portable entertainment system (codename: NGP), which SCE announced today. Users who have never experienced PlayStation content can get a taste of the PlayStation experience through PS Suite and from there, they can enjoy the ultimate portable entertainment experience that is only possible on NGP.

SCE will vigorously enhance the entertainment world delivering the PlayStation experience to a wider base of users.

*1 Android™ 2.3 or beyond is required.
*2 PS one game console software title. We will announce the tiles when ready.

Personally, I don't want better than NDS graphics on my handheld systems.

All those HD details packed onto a small screen are more likely to give me a headache, if I even notice them, than leave me in awe.

Vault 01-24-2011 07:43 AM

Another over priced Sony product which will fail :giogio

Gene 01-24-2011 08:50 AM

At least it has two analog sticks this time.

Speculation on cost puts it around $200 - $250 to manufacture. This being Sony they wont try and mark it up for hardware profits. So speculation is about $300.

You're awfully optimistic. :maybe

An OLED touchscreen alone will add $150~$200 to the price of the PSP2. Add in whatever the hell they've got to get it running near the PS3's level, then the 3G Data on top of that... We're talking closer to the iPad price, like, around at least $600.

Which is probably reasonable, if Sony decide to market it as a tablet PC with actual games - unlike a certain other product. :LOS

The parts are really not that different.. OLED prices are actually cheap, it's once you go to bigger sizes (18" ++ ) that is becomes expensive.

I meant for the consumer, not Sony... :lmao

They already proved they believe we want to pay a premium, plus they'll probably argue that the iPad costs as just much but only does things half as well.

Dreikoo 01-24-2011 10:09 AM

Well, psp has epic games, it may have failed for sony but as a consumer i love it.

Sony has a history of giving consumers hardware at under manufacture cost. They probably wont here, but build cost will make this about a $300 device.

Then what happened with the PSP Go? :maybe

Anyway, a price that low is optimistic given what's under the hood. I'm expecting the price to be closer to twice that. Which means they'll likely charge us around £550... Which is crazy, but it's comparable to the iPad's prices so nobody will complain.

I'm kinda with you there. Handhelds are, for me at least, about a return to earlier graphics styles. Simpler games. Better game. That doesn't always hold true, of course, but sometimes it does. Look at Castlevania.

I suppose I should hold off on buying a PSP for a little while yet. I wonder if this, if true, would play old PSP games as well? :hmm Or is Sony totally against backwards compatibility now?

The World 01-24-2011 10:50 AM

I'm just glad they added dual thumbsticks.

CrazyMoronX 01-24-2011 10:53 AM

I prefer the old-school d-pad myself.

And not the abominations that put it into one giant button, either. I like the seperated directional buttons the most.

Gnome 01-24-2011 02:00 PM

I like the idea of this more than the 3DS, but i'll buy neither anyway.

Depends for me. I'm not going to lie...3DS got me hyped.

But fuck both this and 3DS though until those prices drop to $199 or something. I heard 3DS is $300...fuck that, I could buy a Wii or a 360 at that price.

Gnome 01-24-2011 02:13 PM

3DS is gonna be $250 actually.

CrazyMoronX 01-24-2011 02:18 PM

You can still get a Wii for that. Or an XBOX 360. Or a PS3.

And a library of games you can get used/cheap.

If anything I'd probably have to get either an XBOX or PSP before I can warrant a 3DS/PSP2 purchase.
