Sony open to expanding PlayStation Suite to additional platforms

Posted on February 01, 2011

Sony’s PlayStation Suite service will have somewhat humble beginnings as a delivery system for PSOne Classics on Android and will, of course, be supported on the NGP, but Sony is looking to cast a wide net with the program over time. The first step to bringing the PlayStation brand out into the world is to open it up to as many Android users as possible.

“We have a completely open stance,” Hirai said (translated by Andriasang), “With carriers and with handset makers.” Which means it’s not just phones like Sony Ericsson’s ephemeral Xperia Play that will benefit from the PlayStation Suite, but other, buttonless Android phones that people … probably shouldn’t try to play PlayStation games on.

After Android phones, Hirai is looking to move to Android tablets. Following that, he said, “We’re not ruling out PSS even on products like Sony Internet TV Powered by Google (Google TV) if adoption rate increases, or if it will help push adoption greatly.” Sony is “focusing first” on Android, with an eye toward other operating systems including iOS and Windows at a later date, because “we don’t have the resources to make it compatible with everything from the start.”

That’s a lot of things that aren’t PlayStations running PlayStation games!
