Back in March of this year we reported on Sony announcing that their Playstation Mobile services would be closing their doors forever in July.

Then in September 2015, in-app purchases and the ability to re-download purchased games will also cease, officially closing Playstation Mobile for good.
Interesting news coming from Sony today as the company has announced that Playstation Mobile will be officially closing up shop in July of this year.

Sony is continuing with their big promotion that they have going on for the next few weeks where every week two games on Playstation Mobile will be available for free.

For those of you with an Android device that happens to be Playstation Certified you have a bit of a treat this Thanksgiving as Grapefrukt Games has decided to give away their rather cool but challenging RTS game called Rymdkapsel for free on the Playstation Store.

Square Enix has made one of their games on Android just a little bit more accessible as they have put Chaos Rings up on Sony’s Playstation Mobile store.

Almost a week ago we got confirmation that a version of Tokyo Jungle would be coming to Playstation Mobile in the very near future. Well that future has become the present and Tokyo Jungle is now available for Playstation Certified devices through the Playstation Mobile store.

The rather strange concept of what would happen if a city, say Tokyo, happen to suddenly be overrun with a jungle and the animals took the city back over landed on Playstation 3 not too long ago. It’s a game you’ll either love or absolutely hate, there really isn’t much of an in-between with this title. However, it’s popular enough that a mobile version is heading to Playstation Mobile in the very near future.
