Playstation Mobile Goes Live For Select Android Devices. Get It Now!

Is a new generation of mobile gaming on its way to Android? Sony is apparently ready to make it happen, and as of yesterday, the all new PlayStation Mobile app has officially launched for Android. Not only will Sony’s new service give you access to exclusive PS titles, but will also allow you to start playing a game on one device, and then pick up where you left off on another Playstation certified device. But be warned...the selection of phones this service will work for is pretty limited so far.

As of now, Playstation Mobile is compatible for the following devices:

  • Xperia Play
  • Xperia Arc
  • Xperia S
  • Xperia Ion,
  • Xperia Acro,
  • Xperia Acro HD
  • Sony Tablet S
  • Tablet P
  • HTC One X
  • HTC One X+
  • HTC One S
  • HTC One V

So unless you own one of these devices, you can’t get it on the fun just yet. PS Mobile also only works on 3 devices at a time, which should be more than enough for most users (for the time being). There are about 20 available titles to choose from at the moment, which isn’t bad for launch day, but is somewhat lacking in premium titles (as you can see here).

While there are supposed workarounds for getting this to work on any Android device, I haven’t had much luck getting it to work on my rooted phone or tablet. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait long before more Android devices get Sony certification, and it’s great to see the service finally getting off the ground.

So if you happen to own a compatible device, head over here to download and install the app for your device.

Happy gaming!

    Unfortunately, Sammy isn't a partner yet. Only HTC so far. But that will hopefully change very soon!

    If not mistaken ASUS has got PlayStation Cert too!

    By the way, installed the app into my HTC One S. Seems like my region (South East Asia) not supported. Came out error 8008103E. =(

    Seems they were left out of this app so far though. But the workaround is finally working on my Prime! No premium titles yet unfortunately.

    Here's another story related to this one. I've got mixed feelings about Windows mobile devices but this looks simply amazing. A tablet that you can play WoW and Skyrim on.

    @ Eric - yeah it looks cool but you might want to do it now. Supposedly need 10000 FB likes in 7 days before they'll go into production.

    @CJ - Hopefully we'll have a PS3 and a new Xbox by then. That's when the real fun will start :)

    @Eric - 2013 the year a new game console comes with a tablet dock (save same game on either, play same game on either using extra flash drive memory built into console) ....
