LEIPZIG 08: PlayStation games coming to mobile

Sony has agrred a deal with Player X to bring its PlayStation IP to mobile for the first time in history.

The three-year deal marks the first time Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios has licensed its titles to be published by a third party on mobile.

SCE has previously released mobile versions of games like Ratchet & Clank through its Sony Pictures Digital unit.

Player X will release Buzz! in the autumn, with Destruction Derby following in early-2009. Both games will be supported by an integrated cross-platform marketing campaign with SCE.

Michael Denny, SVP of SCE Worldwide Studios Europe, said: "The creative proposals that came through from Player X were very encouraging and in line with what we are hoping to do with these two licences."
