Pocket Lint heard from its sources that HTC will be one of the first firms to receive Sony's PlayStation certification for its mobile devices. Phones with the certification will get access to Sony Playstation certified games, including PSOne classics like Crash Bandicoot.
The announcement expected later this year, possibly at the forthcoming trade show Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, will mean that HTC smartphone and tablet owners will eventually be able to play Sony PlayStation certified games, such as Crash Bandicoot and other classic PSOne titles.
The Sony PlayStation certification program was first announced over a year ago at the launch of the Sony PlayStation Vita in Japan.
“It expands the PlayStation experience beyond the PSP border. It is the first cross-platform endeavour,” said Kaz Hirai, then Sony Computer Entertainment CEO and soon to be president and CEO of the whole of the Sony corporation.
