Sony Developing PlayStation Phone
Mar 4, 2010, 12:16 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Today the Wall Street Journal reports that Sony is going to develop "a smartphone capable of downloading and playing PlayStation games" in order to combat Apple's growing hold on the mobile gaming market. The smartphone (along with a second multimedia device alo in development) will be able to connect with Sony's online gaming and media platform, which will go live in the U.S. later this month. The Sony Online Service will offer much of the same content being offered by Apple's iTunes Music Store, but Sony believes that it can differentiate by permitting a range of devices (not just phones) to access its catalog of games. Sony says the games will mostly include older games that are compatible with the original PlayStation. Sony is working more actively with Sony Ericsson to develop the handset, which is expected to launch later this year. Sony has indicated that smartphones are going to play a much more strategic role in the company's future. Details about the smartphone, such as price and features, weren't shared.
