Vita-compatible Android games planned

Publish date:

Sony's mobile gaming push has been taken to the next logical step, with news that developers are to be given the tools to make PlayStation Vita compatible Android games.

We've already seen developments the other way round, of course.

Sony Ericsson has released its PlayStation Certified Xperia Play mobile phone, which plays both Android games and a select number of PlayStation titles.

And the upcoming release of Sony's PlayStation Certified tablets – as well as more compatible mobiles – will continue to blur the lines.

But PlayStation Vita compatibility will for the first time see the tide flowing in the opposite direction, with a dedicated games device finally able to dip its toes into the mobile gaming waters.

A beta version of the new PlayStation Suite SDK will be made available in November.
