HTC Devices to Get PlayStation Certification Claims Site

Japanese consumer electronics maker Sony will be rewarding HTC with the PlayStation certification, thus enabling HTC's Android powered smartphone and tablet PC users to play classic PS titles on their devices.

Unnamed sources have tipped off Pocket-lint that an official announcement on the matter could come from the companies at the forthcoming edition of the Mobile World Congress to be hosted at Barcelona later this month.

Meanwhile, HTC has declined to comment on the issue saying that it was not a company policy to comment on rumours and speculations.

Sony first announced its decision to make classic PlayStation titles such as Gran Turismo and Crash Bandicoot available on mobile platforms through the PlayStation Suite program last year

"It expands the PlayStation experience beyond the PSP border. It is the first cross-platform endeavor," Kazuo Hirai, the then Sony Computer Entertainment CEO and soon to be president and CEO of Sony corporation stated while announcing that much applauded decision.

HTC, which has done quite well with its Android line-up of smartphones, will definitely get a boost if it does gain the PlayStation certificate as it will be able to offer a lot more extra in terms of gaming compared to other Android handset vendors.
