Sony has been working for quite a while now to bring its PlayStation brand to mobile devices. The work began last year, when the company announced the PlayStation Suite, which would be a program to bring PS games to Sony Android devices, and eventually allow third party manufacturers to bring PlayStation gaming to non-Sony devices.
During Sony's keynote at the E3 gaming expo, Sony announced that the PlayStation Suite would be rebranded as PlayStation Mobile, though it will still offer the same options for manufacturers to license the PlayStation branding on Android devices. And, even more interesting, Sony unveiled its first partner for PlayStation Mobile, "HTC". This actually fits well with rumors that we had heard about HTC putting out PlayStation-certified devices in the second half of this year.
They are joining the already supported One X, One S and One V bringing the number of PlayStation Mobile-certified HTC devices to six. Sony requires all HTC smartphones except the One V to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in order to enjoy the game store.
