169w ago - Update: Below is the official PlayStation Suit for Android 2.3+ and Smartphones Press Release, courtesy of TechPrezz.com.

Sony just dropped a bomb on the Japanese stage, not a single PlayStation Phone but a PlayStation Phone experience for everybody.

The company unveiled a cross-platform software framework called PlayStation Suite, which sounds rather boring in those words, but what it amounts to is an official PlayStation Store filled with games for your Android tablets and cellphones.

To quote from Engadget (linked above): Sony's starting with an emulator for existing PSOne titles and is promising an Android game store later this year, but soon it might be much, much more: the company's calling PlayStation Suite a "hardware-neutral" development framework to make games portable for all sorts of handhelds, and says that "new and exciting content" is also on the way.

Sony will sponsor a first-party licensing and quality-assurance scheme called PlayStation Certified, and provide the marketplace as well, likely hoping to attract major game developers to build top-tier titles for mobile and get a piece of the action too.

183w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a preview of FirstPlay Episode 29 today, which hits PlayStation Store on Wednesday of this week.

To quote: This week I fell over playing football and hit my head on a brick, which, it turns out, meant I had to spend ages lying down and playing the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta. What's that, boss? No, still not quite better...

That's a true story, by the way, and absolutely the thing I'll be blaming my regular typos on this week. The good news is that it also means episode 29 of FirstPlay, out on the Store this Wednesday, features an in-depth look at what the insanely talented LittleBigPlanet community have been making with the tools from the upcoming sequel.

We've also got one last look at the awesomely frantic sci-fi shooter Vanquish before it's released this Friday, plus a review of the PS3-exclusive HD update of classic shooter Medal Of Honor: Frontline, which comes packaged with the new game's Limited Edition, and a review of Robin Hood on Blu-ray.





And there's more - reviews of Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light and Worms 2: Armageddon, plus a look at the latest downloadable comics, and a new feature in which two members of the team clash...
