The much anticipated re-branded and expanded Playstation Suite, now known as Playstation Mobile, will be going live today for those of you in the Eastern time zone as of the time of writing this. The rest of us on the west will be waiting a few hours but regardless, Playstation Mobile will be going live along with all of its features.
Sony stated that the entire platform would be going live October 3rd and sure enough it looks like it will be on time. Games can be developed for the platform which will be available to play on both Android certified devices as well as the PS Vita. Some Vita game will also be tied into the Playstation 3 as well. All purchases will be linked through member’s Playstation Network ID, so you’ll only need to purchase a game once and have it accessible on any device that has access to Playstation Mobile.
The platform will be available in Japan, the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Australia initially with more countries being added in the near future. If you’re worried about content availability, don’t be. There is a huge list of developers who signed on initially when the service was announced, a list that is surely a lot bigger by now. The moment it goes live, there will be over thirty games available including Aqua Kitty, Flick Hockey, Frederic – Resurrection of Music, Panic, Passing Time, Samurai Beatdown, Slidinbeats, Super Crate Box, Tipper, Tractor Trails, and Twist Pilot.
So if you have a Playstation certified device, today/tomorrow will be a very nice day for you in terms of new games becoming available. For those of you curious if your device will be getting Playstation Mobile, Sony has put up a list of all Android devices that will be getting it.
