Can Sony phones play PlayStation games?

Can Sony phones play PlayStation One games?
I remember that was a thing for the Xperia Play, and obviously the hardware is much better now i.e. Sony Xperia Z2.
Can the Sony phones get games that other Android phones can't?

Yes, you have to buy them from Sony Entertainment Network.
Sony phones can also use a DualShock 3 as a controller.

You'd be better of getting FPse from Play Store though and use any ISO you want.

[edit: ignore this] Not to my knowledge. That notion went the way of Betamax - which you probably never heard of?

Wow, I did not know that.

I'm almost tempted to pick up a Sony Xperia Z Ultra just for the hell of it. Because having a PS Vita and PS3 (and probably a PS4 soon) obviously isn't enough.
