The PlayStation Suite will eventually make its way to smartphones and tablets that are powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 processors. This bit of information was revealed by NVIDIA on its Tegra Zone application on Wednesday. PS Suite is a service that will bring PSone games (and other PlayStation-certified software) to Android devices. The Xperia Play is the only device that is confirmed to include PS Suite at this time. Sony is making sure PS Suite is only available on Android devices that meet a certain technical standard.
Android has a real problem with fragmentation. Sony can’t put PS Suite on every Android device because the quality of the games will vary on different hardware. To uphold the PlayStation brand, Sony is only going for the sure thing. NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chip, which has a dual-core CPU, is powerful enough to make PlayStation games run smoothly. We will see more mobile devices integrate Tegra 2 in the future. Currently, smartphones such as the Motorola Atrix 4G and the Motorola Xoom tablet are powered by Tegra 2.
Some of the games Sony intends to include in PlayStation Suite are Syphon Filter, Cool Borders 2 and Wild Arms.
Sony is also rumored to be working on a PlayStation certified tablet. It supposedly will run on Android 3.0. Though it’s not confirmed, the S1 tablet could also have a Tegra 2 chip on-board.
