Sony’s grand Android plan: PlayStation Suite for all

Sony’s grand Android plan: PlayStation Suite for allJapanese manufacturer Sony, fresh from severing its Swedish friend, held an investor conference last night, detailing its plans to address a projected $6.4 billion loss over the fiscal year.

Essentially, Sony hopes to shove PlayStation Suite on as many Android handsets as possible, while cranking the number of games available from the PlayStation Store.

The reports echo what we heard way back in October 2011, when Sony Computer Entertainment Chairguy, Kaz Hirai, said: "[this] isn't an ecosystem where we want to keep everything within the Sony family," revealing that Sony was "in discussions with non-Sony companies to bring them onboard”.

HTC, in particular, is said to be interested in adding PlayStation Suite to its arsenal of Android devices. Say what you like about Apple, but iOS is easily the gamer’s platform of choice, so it’d make sense for non-Sony Android peeps to adopt PlayStation Suite.

At present, only the Sony Tablet S and Tablet P, and a small handful of Xperia smartphones, are PlayStation Certified. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play got the ball rolling last year, but quickly found itself languishing in bargain bins.

Do you mean "the mobile gamers' platform of choice"?
